On the eve of Gandhi and Shastri Jayanti the Vidyalaya tried to make its children cognizant of the contentment one can achieve by giving and urged them to give the things they don’t use anymore and yet in good condition, viz. clothes, sweaters, shoes, toys, tiffin/pencil boxes etc. The students showed sheer enthusiasm and we collected a reasonable quantity of donatives in two days. We intended to distribute the collection among some of the disadvantaged children of Baahbari Village on 5th October, 2016. We were all set to go for it but we encountered a little difficulty in making the computerized banner for the occasion due to day long power cut in the town on that very day. However the problem was solved easily by the effort of some of our creative teachers and students. They instantly prepared the logo for Daan Utsav and a “manual banner” was all ready.

      Then we went to the village and felt fulfilled to see some 70 children waiting for us in the Anandalaya. First the children were greeted with a lead and follow song and then the distribution of the things started.
    After completing the distribution we all gathered for a group photo. The children were euphoric. We got a precious return against our small effort- their Smiles. The divine smiles.
