To think like a wild butterfly which spreads its wing on a bright morning in spring, to appreciate the world go by, to create the meaning of life rather than to find it, to right a wrong, to defend the weak, to encourage the not so motivated and bring out the best in them and to do something worth writing about, also to write something worth reading about. Honor, Love, Humanity. For a Nation to Rejoice.

Dr Edmond Fernandes



To create a visible difference for those who are victims of time & circumstance, through my work and not through my words.
