I practiced in various courts at Bangalore, Hyderabad and Erode apart from my family chores. I feel very proud about this.

  • Define the true beauty.
  • The beauty is nothing but it is our own feelings. Nature is the existing true beauty than man made. A smile of a child is the most beautiful in the world. In case of adults the inner beauty which reflects in the face is called real beauty. Someone is having dark complex and another is having fair complex and some other are size zero and some are too fat. So we cannot decide or describe by seeing the external appearance. Toothless 90 years old persons are also reveal their real beauty in the face when they are happier.

  • What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
  • Elders, father, mother and children consist of a complete family. Nowadays because of their nature of works they are living away from their family. Earlier when all members were healthy then automatically it formed a happy family ring. But nowadays happiness is not depending on only healthiness, it depends on good education, good job and family wealth which are deciding factors. With all above and good understanding among family members make a complete, healthy and happy family.

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • Atrocities due to cast, religious feeling, gender discrimination, and language differences like many things in the country are bothering me. The top most one is differences due to religious feelings. India is a secular country but the present scenarios are not revealing the same as true. Tolerance and bearing mentality are diminishing now.
