today in class we were given a 100 rupees each and asked to do a random act of kindness.
i did something that made ME happy before anybody else!
a few weeks back, i'd visited a group of street kids near my place
who, despite being immensely poor, had an incredible will to study and
go to school. there's a man called Gulab Rajput who very often gives
them school supplies and the look on the kids' faces was priceless. i
wanted to do something similar provided i ever got a chance.
today i did. i made packets of pencils, erasers and sharpners, wrapped
them up in colourful packing and, along with a pack of parle-g
biscuits each, went around in fatehgunj and distributed it among kids
from humble families who went to school. i distributed some to a
family of 7 kids who study under a street light, another with four
kids and 2 toddlers, a press-wala opposite my house who's 2 kids study
at his laari on a slab of stone, and an old lady's 2 grandchildren.
christmas is my favourite time of the year, and this felt like it-
only this time, i was playing Santa Claus!!! :)
