WISE LIVING IDEAS - FROM A 11TH STANDARD STUDENT - Called SAHITYA HARI
WISE LIVING IDEAS
FROM A 11TH STANDARD STUDENT
I am a small time contributor to an Orphanage cum school called Sevalaya, which is at my place, called Tiruninravur (PIN : 602024) in Tamilnadu. I receive their monthly News letter called – LOVE ALL SERVE ALL.
In the latest edition (Sp,2012) of it, I find an interesting news. I know, you will like it. Here it is :
Sevalaya gets volunteers from all over the Globe, mostly college and School students – always willing to help others, learn more and spread the joy around. One such school student is Sahitya Hari. She lives in USA now and came to Sevalaya last year and offered to conduct Spoken English classes over Skype every Sunday.
The association with the children developed and this year she decided to publish her collection of Poems, with the sole aim of diverting the entire Royalty amount she gets to support the kids in Sevalaya! The book is now published. It is available from amazon.com, Google etc.
She was in India recently and presented a Cheque for Rs.2 lakhs, the royalty amount she has received so far! She is in the 11th grade in her school and the collection of her poems is a prescribed text book for the 9th grade in her won school! The book is dedicated to Sevalaya… She worked hard in a private tutoring centre to raise money to meet the publication expenses of her book amidst her tough school schedule.
She also volunteers close to 40 hrs a week in the Emergency Medical squad (EMS). There are dozens of patients to whom she has provided timely medical care…
The details of her run further on like this..
Does she not make us search our souls – as to what are we doing? I am glad to know of you, Sahitya Hari! I wish you all the Best in your own life. You are already a Role Model for many. I am sure – many more ( including me ) will emulate you in future – and do even better.
It is in these matters of –LOVE ALL SERVE ALL – that there should be a healthy competition amongst us all.
Are there miles between you and us? Miles dissolve in SMILES. Let us cultivate and spread JOY all around.
With Hearty Blessings
