Well, it was time for the monthly family trips for DoW Causes that I have planned for over an year or so to come and the first one we went to Barot and Chindi in Himachal Pradesh. We went to Barot first where we wanted to execute our DoW – Causes as well. There we inquired couple of remote villages and came to know that there is one 6 KM away from Barot by the name Luhardi. We went there and found a primary school in order to distribute the stationary over there. The school was small with about 30 children and there were 2 teachers.
This time I had my wife and the son with me. My wife did the honors of distributing the stuff while kiddo enjoyed with children in the school as I had a conversation with the teachers who were from Palampur and used to go home in holidays which were shortly due. Well, the true smiles around in the school, the laughs, the shyness and what not… It just bowled even my wife out as she was first time involved into such a thing and wondered how did she miss it upfront.
If you happen to be around Barot and interested in executing DoW Cause | GYAAN 500, please feel free to walking to Luhardi and do the honors to bring the smiles over the faces of those children up there
Then we went around the village as we had lot of Woolens with us as well along with couple of blankets to support DoW Cause | WARMTH 500. We carried only few NEW and rest were pretty new but old of course very much in wearable conditions. So, we carried them with us and distributed them around. Many were from the Junior’s last year itself. Most of the woolens we distributed to workers who we found working over construction of roads as they needed such woolens most while living in temporary tents besides…
It was yet another lovely outing with DoW Causes with many more to come in decades to follow….
