Santosh Maskara added this note
Each one is distinct and unique in the eyes of the Creator; there is none like that particular being, there is no second. So each one is precious and specially valuable to the Creator. In the eyes of God, therefore, each one is something special. No one can replace you in the role that you fulfil in God’s creation at any given place and at any given point in time
