All the drops of water together make an ocean. Likewise, each thread joined together makes a garment. Every brick contributes to make a building. In the same way every individual is a building block that makes the world. Yes! Every individual has a rippling effect on the world at large. Thus let us all strive to become human beings and allow the world to become a better place.
