Good evening friends,

Good Evening friends
Today is festival evening. It is Utarayan evening. Everyone is in mood of kite flying. People are on top of their house. At my office also, we change the working time and call everyone two hour early, so they can go home two hours early and can fly kites with family.
I was at matar this Sunday. It was second Sunday. Manav Parivar was having free medical camp. This time they were having more than 9000 patients. I was talking with the management team over their. They told me that they are having patients from all over India. He told me they have patients form Mumbai, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Assam, West Bengal, Kerala, Haryana etc. I think this include major states of India. They also told me that they are having patients from outside India. Their patients came from USA, UK, Australia, Italy, Kenya etc.
I was talking with few patients and asking them do they have get any benefits in their problem and I was so surprise to know that they all says me that YES. I ask them what they have to say about the system? Everyone said that manav parivar was having such a nice system, it was so easy at the same time it was so simple. I really surprise.
I have taken pictures of the camp and I am going to publish here in next post. They are going to have next free medical camp on January 25, 2009.
Good morning friends, Happy and Prosperous New Year. I expect year 2009 bring happiness and prosperity to all around world. I like to share what my friend did on New Year eve.
One of my friend and his wife went to celebrate New Year eve with one of the orphan house in Ahmadabad. All together they have 230 kids. He takes with him music system, audio cd of most popular song and latest songs with remix of those songs, trade show exhibits. He also make arrangement to have pav-bhaji as dinner for all and ice cream also. To serve dinner he use tables which are having a look of modern restaurants. He use table covers and table top display for that. It was so nice and attractive kids feel like they all were in modern restaurants. He told me that the kids were so happy to have a guest to celebrate New Year eve. For first hour they play indoor games.
At 11-00 they started playing acting. He inspired kids to come on stage and do the acting of popular characters. It was so funny and entertaining to all kids. Everyone was just laughing. At 11-45 he started music and dance. As New Year coming closer, the rhythm of the music starts getting faster. It was at pick at 00-00. Than with the beginning of 2009, he stops music and tell everyone just to sit silent. They all did prayer. Everyone started greeting each other. And after that he distributes ice cream to all.
When he and his wife depart from orphan house, kids were so happy. I congratulate them to have such a nice beginning of year 2009. Isn’t it best way to start New Year? It inspired me a lot. Just want to finish with this much known saying—when we shared our pain, it gets less and when we shared our happiness with others it get double.
Good Evening friends,
After giving my free service and volunteering at manav parivar, life back to routine again. I was analyzing my self. The way I did volunteering at matar and the way I treat people over there. So, I was just reviewing my actions and reactions. I also try to understand other people who were doing seva and charity over there. I not mean to say I was noticing others. I strongly believe being volunteer I am not suppose to view what others are doing, I just have to notice what I am doing and how I am doing.
I like to share something thoughts which I have. Does doing seva or charity is my need or need for someone else? I am doing seva for my self or others? If I put the same thought in different words than does doing volunteering is helping me or others? I try to get answer of this question and I found something very interesting. I found that volunteering and charity is MY need not others. If I want to do volunteering than that volunteering is my need, my requirement and I am doing that to make my self happy. Not others.
We continue our talk on this in next post.
Good Morning friends,
December 14 was second Sunday and I was at matar. Manavparivar is organizing free medical camp at matar twice a month. As November was having 5 Sundays, so, this camp was after 21 days. All were expecting to have more patients.
I found that they were right. They have 8978 patients. It was all like people, people, human all around. I am glad I was part of that volunteering event. Free Lunch was given to more than 18000 people.
