Too busy living ?


I was wasting time on Orkut (as usual) and stumbled on this Community called “Street Children”. For a change, Orkut time/resources were actually being put to good use 😉

I request (nay, INSIST) that you click the below link first, and see what I saw, and then, do return to read the rest of this ‘boring’ post.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Thanks for returning….

How terribly busy we are, just living our daily life ! Each day just slips by – without our even noticing it. We eat, drink, sleep, work, play, shop, fight, watch TV, procreate. Surely, we can do something for the less fortunate, even if its just once in a year ?

You don’t need to join an NGO or become a social service activist. And you don’t have to commit yourself to any longterm project.

Let’s MAKE A START today, by DE-CLUTTERING our homes and cupboards.

* Take out all the old clothes, bedsheets, sweaters, shawls & footwear that you haven’t used in the last two years

* Gather old Toys & Games that your children have outgrown

pack all these and give it away – to the same person or to different people. Its Okay if they think you’ve gone a little crazy [;-)]

And this is something I learnt from a friend – everytime you buy something new, please discard the old ones that you have. I might as well take the chance and mention her wonderfully mouth-watering foodie blogspot: www.coloursofnomadiclife.blogspot.com

I know its boring to read such stuff…advice…lectures…absolutely irritating. But considering the amount of time we waste on the internet, let’s take one small step today, by clicking on any of the below links, and making a small contribution (not necessarily monetary) to a cause worth living for.

If you’ve actually read until here, THANK YOU !!

If you’ve decided to/already taken some action, CONGRATULATIONS , AND BLESS YOU !!

Cheers…

  1. Hello Ma’m,
    Thank you for your support. I saw urs posts and than for mentioning the social blogs on your blog. You are so kind and please keep doing the work. But if you dont mind i can say Something. We should nt keep work up to words. We have to do something for all others. Because as a citizens its our RESPONSIBILITY. I am planning to form a group and join all of the street children and misfortune ones in the orphanages and NGOs. Then we can collect funds and again do projects to give money to orphanages or NGOs. Please do and encourage to do others the good things. As mother Theresa said “At end of the life it doesn’t count how many degrees that you have earned, but to how many people you helped… Keep going… All the best ma’m…

    Thank you,
    Potluri

    It was nice to read this. It reminded me of my school days when we had the opportunity to teach school children twice a week after school hours as part of our social service curriculum. It was not compulsory but somehow all the students participated. I really enjoyed those moments I spent with the street kids, teaching them and knowing them personally. They had such heartening stories of evil drunken fathers or uncles etc. God bless these children who are unfortunate but courageous and strong. I admire those who work relentlessly for these kids.

  3. potluri,
