Impact of our actions - a small example

Dear Friends,

I am sure most of you would remember the recent trip with Adyar children by Chennai team. The details of the same if you want to recollect

Last week, I happened to speak to one of the volunteers Poornima who conducts classes and organized this trip as well. Looks like as we were travelling back from circus show, couple of children sitting next to her posed a question, " Akka [ sister ], looks like the ticket cost is around 120rs, how do you manage to spend so much on each of us?". Poornima replied, " We know it is bit costly, but we would like to give you all the best and all of you to come up very well in life. There are many of our friends who are miles away but still want you all to come up in life. We just want to make sure you all come up good in life".

Hearing this, one of the kids replied next moment, "Akka, I feel so happy to have people like you. For sure, I will become a doctor and serve many poor people without collecting fee". The other said, " I would definitely help poor students whatever be the position am in future".

We would not know for sure if the kid would really become a doctor or so in future, but it is the spirit which we she uttered those words that counts. We might teach spoken English, Grammar, language or whatever, but it this seed " I am here to serve others" that would count for the future. We can safely say, all our action, how small it may be, are definitely sowing the positive seeds for future India.

Just want to say - I am really proud to be a part of this wonderful team.
