Spoorthi

SpoortHi. This was a dream come true for me. I always wanted to do something other than my mundane daily schedule, something that would give me peace, happiness and would bring me close to the real world.
I came in contact with Spoothians through a friend, and since then there is no looking back. Time to time we organize some event which helps us to connect to the God’s beautiful world, and we do that in our way, by taking some time and meeting ‘not so privileged’ people.

Yesterday, was one of the good days, when we decided to visit an old age home located in Bannerghatta road. Amazing experience. We met people who were living there not by force or devoid of choice but with their independent decision. The place we visited was not an NGO it was a ‘pay and stay’ set up. All the people there were financially independent and most of them emotionally too, at least they seemed to be.

Some things can’t be expressed in words, they can be just felt, and so was the experience I had there, a mixed feeling of happiness and sadness. Felt sad for those unprivileged kids/relatives of the people staying there, who had, somehow due to whatever reason, abandoned these amazing people. What probably they failed to realize was that, it was not them abandoning these wonderful old people; rather it was their misfortune that God didn’t choose them to be suitable enough, that they could take care of them. Felt happy for the people staying over there, by God’s grace they were independent (financially) and strong (emotionally) enough, to fight and survive even at this age. Hope they always get the peace, they came here for.Got a lot to learn, ya they were the more experienced people at last.

I was concerned whether you were able to understand the language.
But you proved language is no barrier to understand emotions

True, emotions are just felt, its a language in itself.

Very candid work.

This is the only Spoorthi visit I was not part of but I'm truly happy to see the spirit of Spoorthi soaring higher and higher with each visit.

God bless!!!
