An Attempt to Make a Difference, A Desire to bring smile...

An Attempt to Make a Difference, A Desire to bring smile... Yes, this was the mere thought that drove me towards the program - 'U-CARE Friendship Program'. Much Thanks to my organization for giving me such a striking opportunity, a scope to enlighten few hearts , a chance to meet few kids from 'Vidya' - a NGO School. All it required is to charge those naive faces with the spark of confidence, with the wings of courage..to nourish their dreams , to up bring their desires..!
Every fortnight, how I urge to get an hour out of my monotonous work schedule, to meet those faces, to mentor those tiny tots. Can't express the smile they bear, the innocence they outburst with. It gives me a feeling of immense satisfaction, an sense of doing something, by putting in bare minimum efforts though. Believe me, these kids have enough in them, the talent to outburst, the only thing they need is to show them a ray of hope, an illusion of right direction.
To showcase, I've an instance. How the loud voiced ambitious learners demanded every one's attention , the words are still dancing in my head, enough they had to share about their experience, with us so far. Leaving behind the hesitation, each one could stand to address the class.
"I love this place. My knowledge has increased .I've learnt tenses, mmm gk, and states. My didi name is Madhu didi. She teach us very well. She makes sure we understand everything. never scolded us. I love to study."
Wow. I feel so glad to hear those words from one of the 6th grade trio of my group.Earning those words is superb, but trust me nothing I have done is out of the world.no struggle, no sweat.
Anything you dislike about this place : "hmmm..yes 1 thing . (ceegrate peena.. what it is called ? ..smoking,I replied). When we came i saw few people near gate smoking. it looks very bad."
Just imagine, how sharp they are to sense the fact.
Can we say something to every one..the chorus blew up: "We wish you and your family a very happy Diwali. We love you all".
Lost was the stumbling and so was the shyness.

Love you little kids..!!!
Proud to be associated with you all..!!!
Keep going and God bless...!!!

All we need is to infuse more spirit and spread more smiles. To touch few hearts and to shower the kindness.To teach in few and to learn a lot. A minute effort to make a difference, an utmost desire to inspire some one dream high.

Let us come together and do something to Make some difference.
Reiterate the great words by Mahatma -
"Be the change you want to see in the world"

Let us spread the aura of love and compassion all around.
Reminds me of lines by Hannah Moore
"Love never reasons but profusely gives; gives, like a thoughtless prodigal,
its all, and trembles lest it has done too little."

So, why not we can make a an effort to give something to our society , a bit of what we have achieved.A sense of giving is something that soothes us at the end of the day, isn't it?
