Free Food for homeless people in Ahmedabad

Good Morning friends, 

I join a team of volunteer who were distributing free food to the homeless people in Ahmadabad from manavparivar. They were having Khichadi with them. They found 3 kids on street and when they ask them “do you want to eat?” they were so happy that time. I think it was happiest moment to see those people smiling with the view of food for them. 

As it was outside and night time the picture was not clear but I still want to capture that in camera and I take following two pics. See the smile and happiness on the faces of these kids. I think this is best way to do charity. I am glad to do such nice activity as volunteer.

is this volunteering?

Good Morning friends,

 

How you define volunteering? Majority of people might come up with answer that when we help someone physically than it is going to consider volunteering. I do agree with this meaning of volunteering.

 

I like to share this live event which happens between me and my friend. It was Thursday evening.  I come to know on Wednesday that one of my friends who face a big loss in stock market is mentally disturb and he is under depression. I decided to spend my Thursday evening with him. I finish my work at office early and I went to him. When I see him I found him like a live dead body. He was not react my presence. I talk with him and he was not replying nor expressing any expresson with my talk to him. I thought and tell my self that time this is the time when he needs me more. I must stay with him.

 

I started talking with him with he being non responsive. In an  hour he started giving me response. It takes me 4 hour to bring him back to normal mind condition but thank god I was able to do that. It really long story what I talk and how I talk. At end he was ok and normal. Than I say good night to him and back home. When I was in bed I was thinking what we should call to what I did?

 

A human was in need of another human- a human spend time with another human with positive thought in mind, isn’t its Volunteering? I like to ask my reads too, what you call the thing I did. Does it volunteering or charity?

Volunteering is my need, not others-1

We talked last time that volunteering is my need. If I am doing charity or seva, that is for me not others. Someone will thought that why we need to think this issue. Does it make any difference if we are doing seva for our self or someone else? The answer is YES, it does make a lot different with the approaches change. There are two main very common approached behind doing volunteering.

 

Volunteering for others

Volunteering for my self

 

Volunteering for others:

 

This is very common way of doing volunteering. Majority of people are doing volunteering this way. Volunteer always have feeling that he/she is doing volunteering for others. For the person who is going to get benefits. For example, a volunteer A is doing his volunteering in manav parivar free medical camp. As he is young and educated, he likes to give his service to society. He gives his free service twice a month. Now, while he is there he always think that he not needs to do this volunteering. But as he is having ability he likes to do this volunteering to help others. So, he wants to become volunteer to help others.

 

In next post 

Volunteering is my need-not others!

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.
