Report in Detail:
Last week Sunday, 16th November 2008 we (Jeyaseeralan, Jayasree and Hari) visited the Government Home for Girls @ Chennai. Generally the inmates of such homes feel lonely and depressed due to lack of attention and care from the outside world. But, during our visit we made a difference by interacting with them cheerfully and made them come out of their shells and interact freely.
We made the day a joyous day not only for them but also for us, as we were also too happy to see the children enjoy themselves. The interaction was not just meant to provide them some laughs but we also triggered their thoughts on the need for unity among the people though we are from a land , marked with diversity. Quoting some examples from books including that of our former President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (“Agni Sirakugal”) for the cause also had an impact on the children.
We also used this opportunity to inculcate the reading habit among the children and asked them to utilize the small library setup for them by India Sudar Educational and Charitable Trust. We were extremely happy to learn that the inmates of this school are making good use of the books we have provided them. They named the books they like , their favourite stories etc.
It was a great experience to all three of us , i take this opportunity to thank hari for organising this visit. I really appreciate the owness with which he is executing the projects in TN including this home.
Please find some snaps taken with hari’s mobile attached.
Thanks & Regards,
