Brushes a thread-like crack,
Takes a wimpy wipe at the cornice-
Easier to clean than the sky!
And then, in silence,
Testing…one, two three.
“One child dies of hunger every four seconds…”
That one sentence really makes those of us who live in excess stop and think. And let’s face it: if we have the means and time to browse through pages on a computer, we are living beyond meeting our daily needs for hunger and shelter.
A few months ago, I came across this video on Youtube:
While not all of the images in this video are relevant, those that are very graphically display lives quite different from our own, lives that could be changed by people coming together to extend a helping hand.
Such a hand is the non-profit organization Feed A Hungry Child, started by V.K. Narayanan of My Dhaba.
For every $25 you wish to donate, you will become eligible for a raffle ticket to win some very nice prizes, so do take a moment to visit Mahanandi for more information.
I became a bit more busy than I had planned in the last two days because of a last-minute visit from a guest; I had wanted to do a more-complex post to celebrate India’s 60th anniversary of declaring independence, but I’m afraid I must keep things simple this year and just wish all of those living in India, those who once lived in India, those who visit India, those who wish to visit India. and to the land itself a very, very, joyous and happy Independence Day!!!
