Why I’m a founder

That’s because I’m a self-righteous dreamer.

I believe that the world should be a certain kind of ideal, my interpretation of ideal – a world without starvation, discrimination, poverty; a world where people live their life meaningfully and to the fullest, regardless of who they worshiped.

I refuse to shrug my shoulders and say, “but that’s how the world works man”.

I might be sluggish in achieving this, but I’m gonna do this till the day I die.
