I pay tribute to Dr. Samanta for having initiated this enormous task of transforming social lives of millions of people in this country that we admire. I come from where you come from. Different languages, different religion – yes! But the same challenge. You have the luck of being at Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, because you are a group of human beings – men and women – under the leadership of my brother, Samanta.
