I take this honour for Vishwas trust, for the elderly people and for all those who have worked with me, the trustees, volunteers, staff and others who have indirectly contributed. My contribution has been whole hearted but not great, but without all those who have worked with me nothing would have happened. The support from all the government officers who have encouraged and those who thought it is worthwhile for this task. I thank you all and I ask you to remember us and the elderly in all your endeavours and give us your co-operation as you have done all these years”.
