Art of Living Poems.

Clouds of calamities cannot hide  the sunshine of courage, compassion and commitment that numerous volunteers are showing in Uttarakhand. They inspired me to pen these lines in dedication to our volunteers and Indian Army jawans on ground


They say faith can move mountains

And then there are those
Whose faith is unshaken
Even when mountains collapse


There are people who complain
About being bored
About all that is wrong in their life
And world
And then there are some
Who walk into the face of horror
Torrential rains, life threatening landslides,
Whose courage, grit and enthusiasm
Inspires even Indian Army Rescue team


These have absorbed and lived
The true Rudra Puja
Rudra is that enormity which can bring 
Tears of fear to the weak heart
Puja is an act of offering out of gratitude 
devotion, commitment, inner calm
that engages in dynamic service
despite unimaginable loss and adversity

These volunteers for better India
Regular people like you and me,
Decided to do Rudra puja in action


Can we support them
By playing our part in the Rudra Puja
By helping generate awareness
And offerings that would support 
Food, water, medical aid to many?


IAHV and VBI volunteers travel to affected areas despite landslides to set up relief camps in Srinagar, Gauchar along with makeshift hospital in Guptakashi-areas closest to the calamity that are accessible. Please stretch yourself and donate generously.
