The Community walk experience….

Talking about the Community walk experience, one of the Interns said, “Since it was the community walk today…I walked with these two kids Ramesh and Suresh. I think I was wrong in one major thing….I was under this assumption that the kids if are opening up will only talk about difficulties, disturbing circumstances of life! But Suresh changed that whole perspective and spoke about the Happiness in life. He spoke about how happy his family is. He asked me whether I’ll come to his house because his house is really small and asked whether I’ll mind that aspect. But he also told me that in-spite of the fact that his house is small…he said it’s filled with happiness.  I too told him its the same with me…..small house but loads of happiness…for which he gave me Hi5! He was happy that I was like him too and had a house like him. He was happy about this. Seeing him happy made me happy. A happy happy day it was!”

The Little Teachers

Talking about how the children are amazing teachers, one of the Interns said, “More than what the kids get to learn from us….it’s the other way round. We get to learn so much from them. Today was helping few kids at the arts and craft stall…they were so involved and interested in teaching the others the skills they possessed!  Teaching it with so much care and encouragement was such a beautiful thing to do and see. Learnt a lot of amazing crafties. It was a good day.”

Just express yourself……

Expressing her joy of dancing for the first time, one of the Interns said, “To a person who has always shied away from activities like dancing or any sort of things which need you to express yourself a lot. I have always been just an audience!  But today I danced.  Forgot about everything and gave it a try. This was because of a kid there who really insisted on me shaking a leg with him. I couldn’t even think of saying a ‘No’ to him. He made me do something I never thought I’ll do in this lifetime. I owe a lot to this kid for making me do something I never I have never done.. For people reading it, this might look like Ohh! What’s the big thing in dancing….only I know how much that means. Going to spend some quality time in the dance stall from now on during the Caravan.”

Pots of infinite talents and constrained sorrows

“Highlight of the Caravan this time was Heera, so talented and creative. He just came and sat next to me. He asked if he could do the craft stuff which everyone were doing. He ended up doing such great work. He was a very silent kid, but as soon as he was appreciated for the work he did he was so elated and the smile he have made my day.
All the kids there if not everyone but at least a few have many problems but they don’t show it out. I’m very sure if I was in their place I wouldn’t have even had half their energy and enthusiasm for Life. These kids are amazing they don’t show all that our and just try and make us happy who are just going to spend like 3 hours with them.”

First Experiences :)

One of our intern’s first experience at the Caravan, reflecting on the session she says,
“Even in my dreams I’ve never thought I’ll play like the way I played on Saturday. Was happy to know that the child in me hasn’t expired and still lived and came alive on Saturday.”
