Dr. Varun Gupta: I have been fortunate to always have mentors, friends and colleagues who have protected me from mistakes
During Lockdown period everyone has seen your another personality. You have helped COVID patients and their families, people in quarantine and poor people by giving them home made food, medicines, ration, masks, sanitizers and medicines. From you were motivated to do this for the society.
Ramayana and Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta are recited daily in our home. It has been said in these holy books that serving mankind is the real service to God.
So I did this work with the same inspiration. That times, it was seen that people were so much in their troubles that they were not aware of anything.
In such a situation, we considered it as our moral duty to do something for the society. Everyday food was cooked for the needy in my kitchen.
Me, my mother, younger brother and his wife & my driver used to do this work together. Apart from this, we keep working for the society and everyone should do this according to their ability.
