People asked to donate generously

WARANGAL: High Court Judge L. Narasimha Reddy exhorted people to come forward and donate generously for the cause of poor thereby supplementing the efforts of the government.

Inaugurating a hostel for 20 tribal children ‘Vyasa Awasam’ built by the Seva Bharathi here on Sunday, Mr. Reddy said every individual was trying to avoid following the customs and traditions on some or other pretext. Giving back something to the society was always considered a virtue since times immemorial, but of late, people had become selfish.

A country like India needs to be sustained not just by the government but people with commitment and sense of service.

“Doing service is our duty. We owe something to the poor and less privileged. We should also feel that we are getting an opportunity to do something noble,” he told the gathering.

Seva Bharathi is a non-governmental organisation formed in 1984 with a group of retired employees with an objective of educating the poor tribal children providing free boarding and education from 5 to 10th class.

RSS regional member P. Venugopal Reddy said the society needs people who silently work for others. He too opined that doing service was the responsibility of every individual who got support from the same society.

District Collector B. Janardhan Reddy, MLA M. Satyanarayana Reddy, APNPDCL director Narasimha Reddy, agricultural scientist L. Jalapathi Rao and Seva Bharathi honorary president B. Siva Subrahmanyam, members Polasani Laxma Reddy and P. Venkataram Narasaiah and others were present.
