“What can I give”. Below is the transcript of few part of his speech.

Many of my friend in India say that they are connected to their relatives in USA instantly even compare to some remote location inside the country. With this situation what you can do?

When people of Indian origin ask me What can I do to India? My first reaction to tell them is “Server well to the country of your residance” and brings pride to the country of your origin. Every action you do, you bring pride to your mother land.

We achieve objective with the ignited mind of the youth. Youth power is very powerful. Which is the most powerful resource on the earth, above the earthand under the earch? Which mean young need to be nurture with the environment of truth, knowledge, compassion and challenges.

Gandhi ji mother told him at the age of 9: Son, In your entire lifetime, if you can save or better someone life then your birth as a human been and your life as a success.   

From where Tungu Swami ji get the energy at the age of 100 years? You give to get the happiness. Will you carry this message? What can I give? Repeat with me “What can I give”.

So many things you can do for which you do not need wealth. You can share knowledge, go to the hospital and share the happiness to the elderly person and teach people who cannot afford. So many things you can do for which you do not need wealth. Only need a happy heart and what can I give feeling.

Poem: O my fellow citizens, in giving you receive happiness. In body & soul. You have everything to give. If you have knowledge, share it. If you have resources, share it with who need it. Use your mind & heart to remove the pain of the sufferer and cheer the sad heart. In giving you receive happiness.



Before concluding, let me give few suggestion for your consideration. I would like to suggest all of you few points for your consideration.

Number 1, Bring out some document with case studies as to how to encourage employment creators then employment seekers. Spread the message how to generate employment generators.

Number 2, Highlight the community development project experience in your locality for the benefit of the people who are in the similar tasks

Number 3, Encourage exchange program of students living in your locality in USA and your towns in India.

Number 4, Bring out booklets on the culture heritage and develop an experience …

Finally Number 5, Create idea bag for peaceful, prosperous and a happy world.


Please let us know how you like his speech and this blog post via your comments and feedback.


  1. The president and its valuable approach can be seen in the article. Some person may get honor due to their high standard and order papers online about their particular task or strategies as well. The same is discussed here in the article with good inductive approach used in it and the elegance can also be judged.
