Armed with a smile

7-year-old Maykannan Perumal Harijan was born handicapped. He had only one arm. In January 2018, we started working for ragpicker's children and noticed his missing arm. We spoke to his parents who said that they couldn't get a disability certificate for him as there had been no accident case they could use as proof, and when Maykannan was born, the hospital did not mention he was born without an arm. With a little bit of research, we managed to trace the hospital and called them to issue the certificate.

Seeing my mother

My mother is a very generous person and has always helped people in need. When she was hospitalized, a blind couple she supported spent two hours searching for her room as they had come to "see" her. I do believe there is a return in every giving act you do that cannot be quantified. 

A new family member

Most recently, four puppies were left on the beach. Ana Banana was dragging her back legs, and without thinking much about it, with a friend, we picked her up and took her to the vet. They said she was not well. When I was asked “Are you putting her back on the street?” - that’s how we became four, along with Isadora and Viola – my other rescues dogs. It’s always at my lowest that a new puppy arrives, the giving – if we can call it – that is always unintended.

I feel proud to be associated with a NGO struggling hard to preserve our traditional Bhajan (which is disappearing since the Bollywood remix music is catching heartstrings of youngsters) & to encourage experts in this field by organization of Bhajan Competition since my childhood i.e. last 23 years. A bhajan literally means "sharing" & has no prescribed form, or set rules, is in free form, normally lyrical and based on melodic ragas. Bhajan texts are often didactic and autobiographical. The former suggest idealized behaviors for bhaktas (devotees) to imitate, while the latter cite examples from the lives of famous bhaktas such as Mirabai. Sometimes, deities such as Krishna or Rāma are the subject of bhajan texts, with stories from their lives as examples for devotees. It belongs to a genre of music & arts that developed with Bhakti movement. Ideas from scriptures, legendary epics, the teachings of saints & loving devotion to a deity are the typical subjects of bhajans. The saints of the Bhakti movement are credited with pioneering many forms of bhajans, but bhajans have been widely composed anonymously & shared as a musical & arts tradition.. Some Bhajan songs are centuries old, popular on a pan-regional basis, passed down as a community tradition, while others are newly composed. Everyone in Hindu tradition is free to compose a Bhajan with whatever ideas or in praise of any deity of their wish, but since they are sung, they typically follow meters of classical Indian music, the raga and the tala to go with the musical instruments. Bhajans have been influenced at various times by the teachings of saints such as Chaitanya, Haridas, Tulsidas, Soordas, Mira, and Kabir, whose songs are still sung today. They form a part of contemporary Hinduism. I will request you to give helping had to this NGO who has clear vision for welfare of our society as a whole.

I was very pleased to meet Ms. Lata during my social project of PGDM-PHARMACEUTICAL MANAGEMENT (MARKETING). She was brought in Mumbai from native place by her husband in 1998 & sold to brothel owner who compelled her to enter in sex trade. She got married with regular partner who brought her to brothels of Ghatkopar & gave birth to 2 children. When the AIDS Prevention Project of the NGO viz. DISHA was initiated in June 2002, she resumed as Peer Educator in 2005 for giving information to Female sex workers about HIV-AIDS, providing condoms & clinical facilities. She was compelled to leave job since she had taken loan from brothel owner. She again resumed the duties as PE. The admission of her kids in boarding school for education was refused since she was in prostitution. Her elder daughter could get admission due to letter of NGO. She learned reading & writing when she decided to leave the prostitution & to resume as Staff in Septemebr 2008 & since then she is working with NGO. She took efforts to empower FSWs to realize their dignity & rights so that they cannot be misused by clients & stake holders by forming Seif Help Group viz. DISHA Mahila Bachat Gat which was registered with Govt. & received grant of Rs.10000/- & loan of Rs. 2,50,000/- (inclusive of subsidy). The same has been repaid & SHG received subsidy from Govt.. This SHG completed 2 years for working for Clean Mumbai Project of Municipal Corporation wherein some FSWs were employed. Ms. Lata received the CII Woman Exemplar Award 2014 in the field of Health for her catalytic efforts in bringing hope, inspiration, confidence and dignity to FSWs. The NGO has a plan to undertake various income generation programs for FSWs which are being lagged due to financial scarcity. I have secured good Job & has decided to take maximum efforts for this community. I request all to join this endeavor.
