Children Fed: 260
Observations: When we arrive the children of Maheshpur are running around, playing wildly with so much joy. In less then a minute they surround me. They grab my hands and cloth, shouting 'hallow, hallow'. This is the soul of India, showering blessings, breaking the concepts of my mind, going beyond what I know and touching my heart in a second. It welcomes my soul to dance, to dance freely without thinking of who I am, what I am, how I should I look or how I should I behave.
They all laugh and call me 'Gadi Baba' meaning 'Bearded Baba' and we play and laugh together. I prepare 'Puri' with the village ladies for the meal which will feed 260 children and families. The food is in abundance for all and very tasty. At the end of the day I realize once again, it is not me serving them rather I was served much more by them.
In deep gratitude to India, her children and all who are making the contributions and so making this possible.
