Recently I was in the LV PRASAD LABORATORIES and I was attending this film function BAHUMATHI on their audio release function. You might have remembered my earlier post when the RR Movie makers donated Rs. 5,00,000/- to 10 voluntary agencies in making a difference this is on the same occassion.
There was this man that was sitting just two roes away from me and as soon as his name was called a simple peasantry looking couple went on to the stage. The way he talked was not impressive nor was his attire and his looks were not even simple. Then when he talked about his work….
This couple from hyderabad would daily cook food made of Jowar and curry of simplest and cheapest variety and take it to the city college everyday. They would feed around 120 people perday at a simple price of Rs.10/- and free of cost for around 50 people perday. I went to them and asked them if they were that prosperous… The answer was just simple
yeah I do Iam a millionaire. I have fed around a million stomachs for the past 6 years. ANd I shall continue to do it. Its just not me there is one other friend of mine who feeds around 75 sanyasins (saints or saffron clad ppl or fakirs Islamic preachers roaming on the streets). I for some atleast charge some thing this fellow doesnt even charge a penny and he sells vegetables and fruits a hawker.
So what are we doing …to make a difference in the lives of the deprived and unfortunate ?
