उनका उद्देश्य-

यूँ तो एक मानव का जीवन जीना ही एक सबसे बड़ी चुनौती होती है। मानवीय गुण /संवेदना हमारे लिए ताकत भी बन सकते और कमजोरी भी। कुछ साल पहले तक मैं अपने नाम को जाना -पहचाना लोकप्रिय बनाने की सोच के साथ आगे बढ़ रही थी। पर जीवन में कुछ नए रिश्ते जुड़ते हुए ऐसा अनुभव हुआ कि उसने मुझे विशेष कहे जाने बच्चों के लिए समाज में कुछ  बेहतर दिशा और दशा बनाने की सोच दी। एक विशेष बच्चे की माँ के रूप में न सिर्फ इस विषय के लिए समाज मे जागरूकता बल्कि बच्चों को उनकी समस्या से यथासम्भव निजात दिलाना अब मेरा कर्तव्य और प्रतिबद्धता दोनों है। एक इंसान के रूप में उन्हें समाज का अहम हिस्सा के रूप में जीने का अधिकार दिलाना ही अब जीवन का एकमात्र उद्देश्य है।

दि सरेंडिप की टीम कर साथ जुड़ने से मेरी सोच को नया आयाम मिला और काम करने के लिए एक सही दिशा भी। मैं विश्वास दिलाती हूँ कि इसका हिस्सा बनकर मैं इसकी सोच जो सार्थक बनाने के लिए सदा तत्पर रहूँगी।
