When I was 12 years old, I went with my dad to his work - a car showroom. I was wondering around and I saw a poor woman with a child in her lap standing outside the showroom. I saw that she was crying a lot and went inside and told my father. My father went out and asked the woman to come in to the showroom. He offered her some water and then asked her what was wrong?

Yesterday I went to the laundry with my friend to collect her dress. There I saw a poor kid begging for food. His clothes were very shabby and, looking at his condition, it seemed like he hadn't eaten for quite a while.
I went out with my friends to dine at a fine restaurant. After finishing the dinner,we generally prefer to sit outside the restaurant for conversations and fun.
I saw a poor kid there selling 'Coloring books' for his livelihood. While seeing him do that, I realized how blessed we are and still we complain about small things in life instead of being thankful for all we have.

Now I am planning to gift this book with coloring pencils to someone who would like to play with colors but couldn't afford it.
This Holi, Let's add colors to each other's life. Happy Holi everyone!
