Friendship Day observed

IDF young ambassador Shankersai went round the streets of Hyderabad and tied Friendship band to the poor children on the Friendship Day observed on August 2.

I felt happy tieing Friendship band to the poor children and explaining to them the importance of Friendship was a happy moment for me, said bubbling Shankersai. While we celebrate important events, we should also share happiness with the have-nots in the society, expressed Shankersai as he distributed sweets and cakes to the children.

Master G.R. Shankersai, a class 5 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Begumpet, Secunderabad and IDF young ambassador organises various social events with the poor and the needy people. It's my passion to serve the society at large, said Shankersai with a smile.

My parents also encourage me a lot in my social responsibility acts, said Shankersai.

Shankersai quoted the words of Albert Camus
Don't walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Dont' walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Walk beside me
and be my friend.
