ART AND JOY OF GIVING

by JBM Global Teacher

Students of JBM wholehearted participated in the drive – “Be the Santa” joint initiative & annual drive held in partnership with Nidhi Foundation of giving away to needy what we no longer need.

In top nursery school of Noida, it is believed sharing is a vital life skill for children & as to become better human beings. This drive gave an ample opportunity to the students to enjoy the joy of sharing. JBM got an overwhelming response from the students & parents. How else they get sensitized to the trials & tribulations of less fortunate it is a small step to help them. Value of generosity gives nothing but satisfaction to the receiver as well as the giver. Children have to be sensitized towards noble causes by helping the underprivileged.

“The simplest act of kindness is by far more powerful than a thousand bowing in prayer”. Let’s give them the comfort of playing with your child’s discarded toys comfort of warmth by your warm clothes & comfort of sleep with your old blankets & quilts. It is the virtuous deed that enables the young & impressionable minds to empathize with those in need. The warm hug shared by us with the unfortunate made us realize that we must count our blessings. The school always gets complete support from the student’s parents & teachers in any project. We undertake to inculcate the feeling of sharing & caring.

Carrying it forward to 2018 when the world is ringing in New Year. We found a bit of our old stuff ‘we’ have if shared with ‘have not’s’ bring the surge of new joy & satisfaction on the faces. In the cold dreary nights of winter, there are shivering people found on the footpaths, railway & bus platforms without shelter. School in expressway Noida reacted sharply to the newspaper report of a 42-year-old man starving to death in the state where the school is located i.e. U.P on closer scrutiny it was found that man was in bad health & paralyzed hence did not have access to food as he could not move out of his house. It was also reported that it was not only Nem Chand who died of hunger even his mother Khilo Devi aged 82 years had nothing to eat at home except random chappatis coming from neighbors once a week or so.

So children of particular class & section were motivated to identify similar cases as their holiday project in the nearby vicinity & request their parents to reach out to them with whatever help was possible.

It is the joint responsibility of schools & community to ensure that no one dies of hunger for food in today’s day & age. We can contain wastage made during wedding celebrations, birthdays & in various eateries & hotels pass the benefits to those pining for a square meal. The virtue of empathy would be taken forward by this school on expressway Noida would be taken up in junior classes with one point agenda “No waste, let other’s taste”.
