Little Abhishek, Divya, Priyanka and Shiva were very happy to get admission to a good public school to pursue their education. These children of HIV infected parents live in an orphanage in Gurgaon. However, because of starting their educational journey at a slightly later age they were finding it difficult to cope with their science and math syllabus at school. As a part of Samvedna Senior Care’s Community outreach program our club member, Mr. Chadha, a retired Government Servant, decided to volunteer his time to teach these kids mathematics. Ever since he has started teaching these kids, they are able to do their homework and they are also grasping the concepts.
Olympic champion Usain Bolt volunteered to run as a guide runner for visually challenged Paralympic star in a 50m sprint in Rio. What is it that makes people take time out of their busy schedules and make time for making a difference in someone else’s life?
The relationship between a grandchild and grandparent is a very special one. You will mostly find that grandparents are kind and compassionate towards their grand children. They are good, and that is the main reason why grandchildren like them. While grandparents act as an authority figure and provide unconditional love, they also get to spoil their grandkids. But beyond that, grandparents also wield incredible influence.
Graceful aging and well-being have the potential to bring greater worth to human life, much as wine, whiskey, and cheese can become more valuable with the passage of time, garnering enhanced taste, texture and richness. Trees can become sturdier and more bountiful; violins may provide a richer, more mellow sound as they are played; and antiques become more treasured as they survive more history and become increasingly scarce.
