'Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will'
- Mahatma Gandhi
Stories from the life of Mahatma were shared with the children of my apartment.
It was an attempt to understand what made us lovingly call the bald, bespectacled man clad in nothing but a khadi cloth, 'Mahatma'.
Got the opportunity to talk to little children at Gole market. It was a great feeling to know that these children had the concept of Independence ,knew our freedom fighters and their struggle for Independence and also the meaning of Ahimsa. Children were able to understand the stories of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Swami Vivekanand, and Gandhiji narrated by me. These children were very bright and had the urge to read and do well in studies. Tak Dhina Dhin, my poetry books were also distributed. Children loved singing the songs of the books. It was a lovely evening spent with these kids. Thanks to Sarvahitey, an Ngo whose young brigade is doing so much for these under privileged kids and made this visit a memorable one.
