Sometimes it doesn't take a lot to be kind. Sometimes, human needs are really simple. During these cold months for example, warm clothes are the simplest, yet the most important need of people.

Try forgetting your jacket for a day and going out. It won't take more than a few minutes for you to realise that you can barely walk. Now imagine those people who sleep on roads. Many of them do not have a basic blanket to keep them warm for the night.

So we distributed blankets in various areas of Delhi and Gurgaon. This wouldn't have been possible without the generous contributions by some of our volunteers.A big shout to them. You rock!

One specially challenged champion feeding the other, a smile on getting "boondi wale laddoos" on Sunday, and saying hello a countless times to warm your heart...these are the moments that make a Sunday at Ramakrishna Ashram so so special.

From now on, we will announce about our events on Facebook beforehand. This will, hopefully, bring more good-hearted people on-board. We are hoping that the Be Yourself Team grows bigger with every event.

How many times do we close our eyes and get scared at the thought of getting old? Not many times maybe. But everyone, at some point or the other, does wonder about this. And with that follows the thought of our elders, those who raised us and those who raised our parents.

Ours is not a country where old age homes are a common sight. Getting good quality care is a challenge for many elderly people who are abandoned.

Hence, places like the Earth Saviours Foundation Gurgaon are very special and of course much needed. The place, run by Ravi Kalra, a social activist and environmentalist, takes care of old people with physical and mental disabilities.

The team, led by Abay Chawla and Garima, arranged lunch and also planted trees at the foundation. And we met this beautiful dog who could not contain her infectious enthusiasm while gorging on as many laddoos as she could.

It was a hot Sunday afternoon as we watched them have their lunch. From the first morsel of rice to the last sip of the mango drinks, they ate with a bit of struggle and a lot of discipline.

It was not a usual lunch table. We saw one boy helping the other to eat. We saw the kitchen boy wiping off their faces once they had had the lunch (which was on our team). We saw how much effort it takes to take care of these champions.

Anand Ashram takes care of physically and mentally challenged orphan boys in Gurgaon. The efforts of the fathers and brothers and other staff members cannot be described in words. One has to see for themselves to understand their unceasing dedication.

We would like to thank Kuldeep, Siddharth, Sanjeev, Nidhi, Shruti, Taranjot, Jatin Raliya and Garima for making this happen.
