Action: Essence of Shadhinota

“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.” – George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)
But that is an old man’s saying. Do WE dread? No! We DREAM. We love freedom as much as we love taking up responsibilities, because we are responsible citizens. So, why wait?

Plan — Persevere — Pull it off !
