Guiding Words

Dr Geeta is Pragmatic who believes in a clean, healthy and just environment that gives equal opportunities to all. Replying as advice to the young professionals, Dr Geeta instructs them to be patient listeners and active observers.

She Quotes “Always focus on the root cause of any social issue and try to solve that root cause with this approach we will solve multiple issues together. Today we need Social Innovators, Social Scientists, Social Investors and Social Entrepreneurs, charity alone cannot solve the problems, if that would have been the case we would have at least solved one problem of hunger. So much charity and efforts are put to end hunger but still the problem remains the same. Unless people with new ideas and innovation come forward and consider social projects as critical as a mission Mars project, we cannot solve these problems.”
