She believes that communities can get together and tackle common issues. Hear it in her own words:

It started with the cutting of a tree
Some citizens got together with a plea
How do we protect our surrounding
These thoughts led to its founding
Whitefield Rising-an effort by volunteers
Of citizens who are giving and sincere
To whom a common goal appealed
Whose vision is a beautiful Whitefield
 How do we get together and share
And show people that we should care
A team for whom managing the Waste
Got BBMP to get into action in haste.

 Emerging is a team to handle woes of Traffic

Residents are writing details in graphic
Other issues are depleting Water and Lakes
May be too high are the stakes?
`Eat Your Street’ will surely Green
Adding many a vegetable to our cuisine
Our  efforts are going to be put to the test
Let us all give it our best!
