Today was a different day for me,a bit unexpected.Just when i thought of concluding today as the most boring day of my life i was suddenly rushing out of college to go and help out the sahaya members with the independence day program being conducted at kphp gowdawally(pardon me for my spellings!!!).It was awesome to see all the kids so excited to participate in everything.There was an essay writing & painting competition conducted in the morning which i as usually missed(i generally miss the best moments),but according to the other volunteers present there it was a huge success.My friend told me that there was also a kid who actually drew his headmaster n proudly presented it even though it was nowhere near understandable...whats important is that they had the courage to show what they felt which is never done these days.Most of the kids participated in it.Well they are yet to be corrected n prizes will be rewarded for the best three.....hmm i should have written one.I entered the school in the afternoon and was really amazed that they recognised me.I was supposed to write an essay in Hindi(amen!)...i did write it though i nearly pulled out half my hair getting the spellings right.Finally i completed it....it was not so bad after all... they were girls who wanted to sing songs and were already ready with different songs...wow!...there was a boy who sang sobeautifully that he should be competing in one of the TV shows.Children came up to me showing me their self written speeches,it was truly encouraging not only for their fellow students but also for me.Nobody wanted to be left out and nobody backed out.All they needed was a little encouragement and that's what we are here for.i never knew i could handle anything and here i was handling kids.I'm proud of myself for that.;-) on the whole it was was a ...hmm...gr8 but unusual experience.
These children if put in the right track have great potential.They have talent that most of us lack having studied in private schools not to mention with more than enough facilities provided.i hope we are able to help them help themselves.i am so glad i am able to put to use my otherwise self centered life on making the future brighter for these children.This organisation isn't just any other organisation that pretends to help.We don't spoon feed them we help them realise their true potential by their own hard work.Well before i get too sentimental let me introduce my self....I'm just another girl who goes by the name navya nithyananda,a volunteer who hopes to give these children a hope to prosper....And I'm glad i"m a part of sahaya :-) thank you sree ram,thank you srikanth,thank you dharani,n of course thank you rajshekar...
