His objectives can be followed by the children. The future is in the hands of the children, who are the young buds today and should blossom and spread the fragrance everywhere. Parents give money to children whenever they ask and the children may not know the value of money, which will sometimes get them into bad habits. So the children needs to be guided properly in the young age itself, she said.

Every minute has to be used for the good work, she said.
