Within my Means

The internet has recently been swept up by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Is there a cause — social, political, cultural, or other — you passionately believe in? Tell us how you got involved — or why you don’t get involved.

Being a part of society I cannot escape from my social responsibilities. As a teacher, mother and moreover as a wife of defense personnel my hands have always been full. The kind of welfare and counseling drive we initiate in forces no NGO can ever think about it. We work on the ground not as a Campaign force but as a team which reaches the needy people who in turn reap the benefits. Be it a lecture on general health and well being, good parenting, stress management, child vaccination, organizing trips for ladies for their medical check-ups and pap smear tests,I have been deeply involved as a volunteer. Imparting education to children who need guidance, free coaching at the time of board exams were few projects I was closely associated with.

Charity gives me immense satisfaction and peace. My children go with me periodically to donate clothes,toys,stationary to unprivileged ones. 

  I see internet as a space which empowers the society, its reach is tremendous. ALS Ice bucket  challenge is one of its another campaign which could drive young generation to serve the needy. I don’t get impressed by these social media initiatives as I believe in personal involvement rather than working for a cause which is super hit on Facebook and goes viral. Reliability is partially guaranteed in such cases. What glitters is not always gold.

 Recycle, reuse, reproduce is the biggest cause I am promoting as a home maker and as an educationist. Plantation is in our blood since we keep on changing houses after every two years. Go Green initiative was a huge success while I was a principal in a school in Uttaranchal, located in Southern slope of Himalayan ranges. I sincerely believe that we must reciprocate mother nature by planting as many trees for all care and love she bestows upon us. My closing statement would be a famous Quote by V.H. Friedlaender
“My heart is glad, my heart is high
With sudden ecstasy
I have given back, before I die,
Some thanks for every lovely tree
That dead men grew for me.”

Slowing down is an art, indeed a therapy to become more mindful of your blessings of life. It means to be more present at the moment. To eliminate the stress of our lives and enjoy the simple joys that we otherwise tend to miss out on. It is a soul awakening to feel eternal happiness. This verse highlights the need of slowing down in life before it is too late.
