"Besides the life skills & livelihood skills I was inspired to follow your PM Narendra Modi's vision of sustaining clean India particularly on the aspect of sanitation facilities and its aim to build 11 Million toilets for which we too contributed in small measure but every little counts like the rain drops filling up the the big pot!".

"It's not about attending a conference but making a difference walking the talk".

"The beauty of life depends on how happy others are because of us and its about doing small things with great love which counts the most", Gunakekara added.
