Through this website I was inviting people from different backgrounds to serve the society in different manner depending on their background. Mission of my website was to identify the various issues in the society and then to carry out different measures to solve these issues. Overwhelming response boosted my confidence. But problem arises when these people contacted me and told me that they will help me but under some conditions. At one point of time most of them had some condition and unfortunately I gave up the whole project and closed my website RESULTS ACHIEVED: Support of the individuals who were really interested. They persuaded me to continue with the project despite being aware of all the problems. RESULTS NOT ACHIEVED: Ultimate failure in serving the society. MY DISAPPOINTMENT LEARNING: People will help you only if they are getting anything out of it. Another learning outcome was that if you want to do something, you should do it on your own. Never depend on anyone, it will create problems in most of the cases.Works Citedwww.studygs.net. 09 February 2010 <http://www.studygs.net/timman.htm>.
