As per her statement, I realised that I can serve people better by taking part in governance. While I was in college, my world was confined into books, but once I started working, I could understand ground realities, and I realise that I want to do something more than just being a doctor. As a doctor, I can only treat a patient but I cannot solve his problems overall. There are a number of issues which can solve a lot of health problems, such as access to clean drinking water, proper roads, good food, cleanliness, health and hygiene, and so on. With this job, I will be able to serve people better.
