Share your experience as a spiritual person
I strongly believe that every action has reaction, which is karma. That is spiritual principle of cause and effect, where intent and action of an individual influence the future of that individual. This life is only a journey to next life. So, we have to choose the correct path to next life. Spiritualism will contribute to the spiritual progress of humanity and destroys the prejudices of religious sects and social classes.

As a senior faculty, how you cherish teaching profession?
I think, it’s God’s gift that I have been in this Noble profession of teaching.

Youngsters view a situation with clear perspective and a more educated outlook. They have lot of enthusiasm and potential to help and manage the upcoming generation. But if he / she is selfish and narrow minded it proves to be a great damage to the nation. Moreover, they may not have much knowledge about politics and to lead a political party.
