Don’t we have to use our capacity, skills, training, experience, expertise and reputation in various fields in ...

“What I like about these youngsters is that they are just like any other youth, but get to know them closer, and we find some excellent stuff in them.” This professor was not sympathetic to anything spiritual on the university campus.

We are constantly being told that if we do well we would be rewarded and if we do not do good, we would not get the reward. These rewards take different forms – chocolates, TV time and so on.
