It was a first time experience for me and it was totally life changing. Spending 3 months with the kids made me realise how much we guys are actually missing on to. These kids have been a driving force in my 3 months journey. I think these kind of volunteering experiences should be taken up by everyone once in a while so as to have a different perspective life. Kudos to Smriti and her team for doing such a wonderful and a tough job.
The day I entered the “EastSons GoodWorks” ,the positive ambience over there gave me immense peace ,as I realized I am going to work with those who are working for the welfare, development and empowerment of the deprived sections of the society. Most importantly, the smile on the faces of little ones made me feel delighted and satisfied which opened my way of self conciousness and peaceful mind. In the wink of an eye, feeling of self belongingness aroused in me and I got involved as a member of the EastSons GoodWorks’ highly devoted team. I realised within a short span that,although we, as a team are working hard for better transformation of the children, women and everyone else who is struggling to earn two times meal per day, yet, whatever we are contributing isn’t sufficient. For that, all of us will have to join hands to make them not only stand on their own legs but also become examples in their community.
At the end of the day, none of us will deny the fact that, inner satisfaction comes from serving the deprived by putting a smile on their face.
