Bhopal : Their age is to play now. They want to play cricket and football with their friends. Their age is to celebrate happy moments with their friends, siblings on their birthday.
But they are in their respective homes. They wear masks. They keep distance from people. They have to keep their hands clean with soap and sanitizer from time to time. The service of doctors and nurses working in hospitals, police personnel on duty in every nook and corner of the city and the sanitation workers busy working in the colonies and neighbourhoods also makes them wonder. They understand that the country is facing a big crisis.
They also wish to contribute in these times of crisis. They also that being small now they would be able to anything big. But as they say every drop makes an ocean.
Bhagyoday Singh Paraste, a student of Class V, of Montfort School in Mandla has set such an example. He has gradually collected an amount of Rs 12 thousand 197 in his bank.
With this money, he could have probably bought something for himself– a cricket kit or good football. But no, he handed over this savings to District Collector Dr. Jagdish Chandra Jatia. His intention was very clear – in the moments of crisis, this money would prove useful to someone. The Collector also appreciated this initiative of Bhagyoday.
Another example has been set by Nihal Rawat, a boy from Pathrota village in Itarsi tehsil of Hoshangabad district. He had collected Rs 3000 in his piggy bank, which he handed over to Red Cross as assistance for Corona crisis. District Panchayat CEO Shri Aditya Singh was also impressed by this child.
If children of the country have such a passion to help people, victory over the crisis is definite, no matter how big it is.
