My unique experience: Dr. Jaswant S. Sachdev

Finally with the grace of God, I did make it back home yesterday. While this was one of my over scores of previous visit back home over a span of forty years, I don’t hesitate or mince words in saying it openly and clearly that this visit turned out to be one of the best and fruitful for me than any before. Our visit to the kitchen at Bangalore on March 5th a success and unique experience.

This visit indeed changed mine as well as that of my wife’s perspective towards life. The selfless service being performed in a best possible way under the circumstances deserves all the credit in the world. It made me feel that there indeed is “Hope” that children of India will one day once again shine and shine with great splendor so long as people and volunteers are there.

I am planning to write in detail about visit for our local ethnic weekly, but in the meanwhile please accept my congratulations and my personal thanks from the bottom of my heart for all what was done for me to make my visit a fruitful one with first hand on site experience with what goes on with such a great facility. It indeed was a combination of true ingenuity, sense of purpose, desire to serve and efforts to raise funds as well as love for country we call mother India.

Dr. Jaswant S. Sachdev, MD

Objectives of the Mid-Day Meal Scheme

Far away from my country, I haven’t thought I whether I could change myself or not, or change others. We live in Dharward’s city centre. This is a city which only have a highway road cross. There is no entertainment, only can find some shops and banks. I think it as a country side. Everyday we go to work and back to the homestay, bored and pale.

One day we have a chance to visit a village school. There, green tree and red earth makes a shock eyes. Women, children and the olds stay in the village. We arrived the school, it’s not big. There’s a playground in front of the classroom and children play on it.

When we got off the car, children crowed with great curiosity and more and more children came to us. Brown skin, black hair, big eyes, it’s my impression. Everything is the same but big smile made a deep memory. They both don’t speak English, but they eager to talk with us. We can communicate with each other only with few sentences like what’s your name and where are you from. To our surprise, they know Jacky Chen and KengFu!!! How can they know that!?

After they saw our camera, they are excited. They really show their longing to take a photo. We are so moving, for their sincere. Maybe they will stay here for whole life, maybe we are the few foreigners they have seen, and maybe after seeing us let them know the great world, let them know that there are many different countries people living in the same world. Maybe we made their have new ideas about the world and life. Whatever, even we can change little, but we actually make a change.

In the month, I have doubted the meaning about this summer, I have complained the boring job, I have felt sad about everyday is the same’ s life. However, in the end, I think we find the truth that why we are in India this summer. The world is changed by us, even is a small blog on the internet, even is some quick glance, even is only 480 hours stay.
