Love Begets Love
Love and Goodness are highly infective, it is told. What the volunteers of the Annapoorna Breakfast Programme from Noida witnessed during this Sankaranti perfectly fits this phrase!
Annapoorna breakfast is served to the GPS and GMS schools in Hoshiarpur in Noida, a part of the State of Uttar Pradesh. One of the vendors, who was touched by the volunteers’ service for the needy school children, has been supplying certain items at very nominal rates for the breakfast programme in these schools for over two months!
This Sankaranti, the vendor went one step further, and got his staff to make 550 packets of Rewari and Gajak (traditional sweets in Northern India made of sesame seeds, jaggery and nuts) for the school children, adding to the oranges that were being distributed by Annapoorna volunteers.
He went to the schools to distribute them himself, and displayed a lot of enthusiasm and humility during the activity. He has promised to be back shortly with Soya katoris (a type of salted savories/Namkeen)!
Well, Love begets Love!
