Monsoon Issue - 2012

Smile Foundation

Service to others is the you pay for your room here on earth”- once said Muhammad Ali, the boxing great who turned a philanthropist and social activist later.

For a country of our size, it seems there is so much to do and so less is at our disposal. All of us have to find a way out. There must be a better one every time when we feel inadequate in our reach.

Sensitizing children of today, the very catalyst of our future, is one long term idea. This is also an age-old wisdom in society-building. This issue explores this angle through the cover story.

Sometimes, it feels just doing is not enough. Doing differently with innovation becomes the call of the hour. In the same light, the special story is dedicated to Smile on Wheels, which is a globally recognised innovative health delivery model for the underprivileged. Bringing the future technology and new methods further in serving the less privileged will be as much a challenge as a prerequisite.

There are stories of hope, inspiration, progress and possibilities.

I hope you will like reading this issue too.

Warm Regards
