  1. An inspiration post Vinay. The crux of the post is in the last line:

    “It’s not what matters, what matters is how well we do and trying to make people’s life better.”

    1. Thank you Fayaz. I agree, it is not what sometimes it is all about the how and the how will go on to make a lot of difference, not just to the benefactor but also to the one who is doing it. Sometimes more to the person doing it in the form of intangibles.
