Dr Siva Rao said that spending time with the pets was like doing meditation and it would result in de-stress of our tensions.
He complimented the management of the Shirdi Sai Institutions for organising such programme recognising the importance of pets in our lives. He hoped that other educational institutions would follow suit to conduct such programmes.
