If only all financially sound, successful people around the world remembered their mentors and gave back to society, the world would have been  a great place to live and die.

Across cultures of the world we have people with great minds to help and groom youngsters from different cultures and we also find there are people who in spite of their busy schedule find time to express gratitude for all small acts of kindness in their lives which helped change their future forever.
