After addressing a press conference in Bangalore on 21 July Amala Akkineni was asked to approach 2 strays at the venue of the press conference, which neither she nor the press and photograpers had ever met before. She calmly sat down with an extended hand and talked to dogs in an even calm reassuring way. She let both the dogs approach her, and they did and sat with her for more than 15 minutes – even as the press went wild taking pictures.
Amala does not just advocate the cause of ABC/ARV, she walks the talk. Amala is the founder of Blue Cross Hyderabad and has been working on making ABC/ARV programs in Hyderabad a success for more than 15 years.
