Who am I ? A human first…

We have recently been into some social work, though I don’t like putting it forward as “work”. We have really mixed in with these three young sisters, who we teach with so much passion and hope.

These three have taught me how to shake it off and LIVE when things are not in favor; smile everyday like never before; challenge the people who think you are less and walk with dignity wherever you go.

The three of them always greet me every morning with a pleasant “Good morning, Didi” which by magic, drives away all my stress and makes the start of my day all the more cheery.

Two days ago, we celebrated the birthday on one of these girls. We did cake cutting, put on some music and had a mighty energetic dance followed by a tired bunch of us. French fries, juices, pizzas, etc had really satiated our hunger.

After few days, when I asked the eldest one what she wanted to become when she grows up, the reply was touching. It left me pondering.

She said, “I want to be like Ma’am (My Mom). Yes! I want to become a teacher. She has taught us passionately and taken so much pain and effort to get us admitted in a school. I have full gratitude for her and that being inspired by her; when I grow up, I would like to help others the way she helped us…”

Analyzing the reply, I realized that how one humanitarian act leads to another; how one moral value inculcated in a person leads to virtue and optimism in and around; how an ideal can actually inspire and influence the world…

The world really needs good people who can lead; lead to a greater, habitable and morally invincible society…Let’s try to be one.
