Make a Difference

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

“Thank you’ or “God bless you” are heartfelt words often said to a volunteer.

In the biography of Bhagat Puran Singh Ji, it says that being a sewak is being a friend of the forlorn, helper of the helpless. This noble cause does not need the volunteer to be academically educated, but be a passionate lover of mankind.

When I first started doing volunteer “job”, I was not sure what was expected of me. However when I saw the smile and look of appreciation on the face of the individual I was helping, it gave me the most joyous and unique feeling as I did so little and received so much. Thus I began my journey of social welfare work.

Sometimes in the cause of my work all I need to do is sit and listen to the individual or even reach out the disabled who is trying to put on his shoe. At the end of the day I feel good that I have spent my time and energy in helping others and bestowing hope.

This “job” might not pay monetarily but it gives great satisfaction.
