I remember one incident that his mother narrated when YSR became CM in 2004. It goes like this
During a summer season when YSR garu was in his medical college his mother complained to him that people were stealing water from the canal that was met for trees in their farm. After listening to that it seems YSR garu said that when people are dying because of no water it does not matter if trees die with no water. So he told her not to object the people taking water from canal. I thought leadership qualities in YSR were there from a very young age.. we dearly miss him..
