I never aimed for success, I just did what I love the most- serving the poor and I believed in it, Success just happened during this process’, Says B Sriramulu. ‘Achievement is the by-product of hard work. I never stepped away from the path I have chosen.
I wanted to be a representative of People, an Advocate to their problems, a leader they can rely on and for all this to happen I never worked from my Brain but have worked from my heart. I have seen people suffering right from my childhood days and as a kid I always felt that if God gave me a wish then I would wish for the welfare of the people.
As I grew up I saw God everywhere, in every man and woman and child and then I knew that God has granted me that ‘wish’. I chose to become their leader in order to lead them towards better living conditions. The people granted me the wish I always wanted. No man is honored for what he receives – Post, Stature, and power etc but for what He gives – Compassion to his fellow human beings, working towards their welfare and being passionate about what to give next’, says Sriramulu emotionally.
‘Today if you feel that I am honoured with this Ministry and Power you are mistaken, I am honoured with the Love people shower me where ever I go. And I am their servant whose job is to see that they are happy and I will continue to be that way till the last breath I take’, says BSR, the man of the Masses.
