We recently went to Anandashram, an ashram in Gurgaon where Brothers and Sisters take care of mentally challenged kids and teenagers. Wanted to share some images here.

When we looked at these Brothers and Sisters, we couldn’t help but wonder, they spend an entire lifetime serving people in need. How do they manage to be so kind and selfless?

You can google their address and donate food (raw material) and clothes to them if you wish to. We are also hoping to do some activity to do our bit. Real soon.

In the meantime, have a look at these pictures. Two bands: Shunya and Jim Iris performed for them on Children’s Day. Look at the happy faces. Music certainly does wonders.

I am an admin of this page and I try to attend all the events we plan. But because of unforseen circumstances I could not attend this one.

And today was a usual day for me. I woke up, went for a run wishing to get thinner, checked my whats’app, replied to some messages on Facebook, got ready and thought a countless number of thoughts on my way to work.

I got my favourite java chip coffee on my way and I even ordered a dress online. You know, big discounts and all that jazz. So precisely, I did everything to beat these Monday blues.

Then I sat to upload this story and I opened the pictures to resize them. And I paused. I was smiling. I was smiling like something has gotten into me. And then I wondered, I have been doing so many things since last weekends just to please myself or whatever. I know they do not usually say that we do everything to make ourselves happy. But more often than not, we do it only for happiness.

The smile on the face of these kids is so infectious that I cannot describe. It was a Be Yourself effort in which the team spent a weekend with these kids in a Labour Area School. The teacher you can see in the pictures loves these kids like her own. She is proud of them actually. She is working hard and we will try to do more to help her in future as well.

This is for real. The time we spend with all these people who have limited means is nothing less than happiness.

Last weekend we met some kids at a Labour Camp area in Gurgaon. It is a small place where labourers stay with their families. A few ladies are already helping them with food. We got them school bags, drawing books and toys. And of course we had some lunch with them. Check out the pictures. And if you want to be a part of our efforts in future, please contact us whenever you feel like.

Special Thanks to Arti Malhotra, Ity Sharma, Taranjot Kaur, Jatin Raliya, Akhilesh Sharma, Ahmad, Prince, Akanksha Darshwal and Jeeveshu Ahluwalia.

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

About the last bit, we don’t know if it is ever possible. But we try. We try to create our own slice of heaven. This time, there were more bakers!

Last Saturday, we celebrated with kids over some burgers and conversations. We distributed school bags as well. And they danced! They danced like they had no poverty to fight with, as if they had no worry in the world and as if, given a chance, they could master a serious form of art.

Special thanks to Ity Sharma Seth, Tarun Seth, Gunjan Deepak, Lochan Bansal, Aarti Malhotra, Ajit Sehrawat, Akhilesh, Ahmad and Priyanka from Wise Man India, Jatin Raliya and Jeeveshu Ahluwalia. You all made it happen :)

We had a perfectly well spent Republic Day this year with a new bunch of kids. A day that started like an average, lazy winter foggy morning, moved forward to become something that was nothing short of a celebration.
This time we did something for a greener city. We planted a few trees. Not only that, we organized a drawing competition where children participated with great excitement.
We tried to draw a few sketches ourselves, completely un-uploadable of course. The kids were much better :)
Special thanks to Akhilesh, Ahmad and Priyanka from M/S Wise Man Consulting and the Be Yourself team.

New Year is a time for celebration. This time, we celebrated it with sixty street kids. We do not know how much joy we could spread, but we do know that while eating together and giving them notebooks and pencil boxes, we kept ourselves busy doing something worthwhile.

And amidst all the poems the children recited and the stories they shared, we lived our childhood, all over again. It was beautiful, in ways that are small yet thoughtful, cliched yet heartwarming.

Be Yourself team tries to help children because they stand above the differences of caste and prejudices. They need education. They truly need a helping hand and yes, they are the future.

Special thanks to Akhilesh, Ahmad and Priyanka from M/S Wise Man Consulting and Jatin Raliya and Ity Sharma. You guys made it happen.

From now on, we will ask more people to join us in our future events, whenever they are planned. Thank you for all the support.
