Student life is not all about academics, games, friends and fun. In fact, it is also about learning to interact with other people, being aware of the social issues/inequities and learning to help the helpless people in our society.
Mukti thinks that students are never too young or immature to start making a difference in the community and translating the social issues. Making a difference doesn’t mean doing something that’s going to change the world. However, students can do things that make a difference to themselves, their family, friends or community. Mukti inspires them to make an effort to make someone’s life a little better and make people happy.
Mukti also requests parents they should find meaningful ways for their young ones to contribute to the community initiatives and social reforms.
Mukti TSS mentions here the social services of some enterprising students.
