Today is Saturday the 30th of July and once again I enter the gates of the Shiva Ji Mission School in Lakshmanpur Varanasi. As I walk through the gates I am met with the familiar sight of the children studying in their open classrooms. Over the past week there has been unusually heavy monsoonal rains and even though the drainage in the playground has been repaired today there are still puddles and the surface is muddy. even so, this is now fresh mud rather than the stagnant water and green slime present before Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust installed drainage in the play area.
Even though it is always the same I am still amazed on each visit about how happy and joyous these children always are. It's like the joy of life itself is beaming out of each one as I hand them their 2 bananas. When I'm with them I feel that same joyousness too and it is a clear reminder that we are all energy and that what we choose has an impact on all those around us.
