Is it even possible to know everything that happens around you and take an action that will create an impact? Become aware, become conscious, become a part. Very often, we fail to participate and realize that we can do something to bring a change in that situation. We live in world of our assumptions and are oblivious to a lot of things. Most people are unrecognized or are lost because of the lack of recognition. The theme will bring out all those excellent people who deserve our appreciation.
