Love is the answer to solving our problems

TO LOVE is simply to love your family first, then you will naturally love the rest of society. 

Many people live without understanding the word “love”. They blame others for their own choices that made them unhappy or poor, or are limited by their own definitions. 

We tend to limit ourselves by creating boundaries, defining our roles and abilities, and hence fail to learn true love. 

But it is not enough to just experience love – it must be translated into action, and be consistent, durable and lasting. 

Ruin will come to each household if the father fails to do his basic duty of providing love, food, security, shelter, clothing and care. Until we learn responsibility and show love in raising our children, we will never have a chance to rectify social ills. 

I am planning to adopt a poor family and help as far as I can to provide basic needs to as many others who have not been able to keep up with modernisation. 

I hope I can instil in my children the desire to be helpful by walking and not just talking! 

Act while you can, walk while you can, love while you can.
