To those fallen angels ....

A day too late, but nevertheless. ....

63 years ago, our brave-hearts fought to give us the free life we have today.

about 20 years ago, a prime minister strove hard to make free movement of goods a reality, and so we are able to buy good freely and easily today.

Today, with commercialisation and major self interest, the work of these souls seem no longer significant.
The developed countries, though they realise our intelligence and brain power, snub us and take advantage of us due to the above reasons. Why not try and provide for our own instead of filling the coffers of others ?

It is easy to preach. But, I have started what I hope will be my bit. I am trying to educate blind children. I have just started on the course. I am trying to be a part of the team that helps blind children in Tamil Nadu speak English. I do with an organisation called "The Ann Charity Foundation".

Her id is :
anncharity@gmail.com
AnnCharity@aol.com

I try to buy clothes from Gujarathi / Rajasthani / Lepakshi exhibitions/emporiums hoping that what I pay goes to the poor craftsman.

I am trying to do my bit to help. I do not want the efforts of the brave-hearts to go a waste.

Hey Deepa!
You work with the visually impaired!
I work with children with special needs too! Always wanted to learn braille and sign language as well but can't find any part time/ distance ed courses.

Hope your grandma is heaps better and the miracle you were hoping for has been fulfilled.

Take care.

Thats a wonderful initiative. I hope everybody realises that every little bit counts that we do for our society and country no matter how small or insignificant it may appear.
All the best!!
