The village is vibrant with activity. In every corner that I look, I see activities in addition to the primary reason why I am here today, the Just One feeding program for impoverished children. The boys are playing a game similar to the Indian pastime of cricket. The girls who are not involved with the rolling of the dough, cooking of the vegetables or frying of the puri are engaged in sharing circles, caring for the youngest babies and roaming livestock, or tending to their daily chores.
Today's feeding goes as smoothly as the daily entrance and exit of the trains into Varanasi. The children stop their games long enough to feed each other. The youngest are paired with an elder, so that they can share one plate. Nothing in India goes to waste. Everything is collected and recycled. It is a great feeling to leave a village knowing that everyone came together today to share in this Just One feeding.
