Shanthi Nilayam on 4th Jan 2011 

We also visited Shanti Nilayam on 4th January last week.  

Narender and his friends Durga, Satya from TCS visited Shantinilayam on 4th Jan 2011, their experiences follows.

Durga's experience :

  The dream has come true by visiting Shanti nilayam on my Bday because of my friends. It is situated near Khali temple, langur house. After reaching there we met a lady ( Rani ) of age around 35-40. She was so humble and received us very nicely. Its a moderate house, made first room as the office room. Then we entered into the big hall sort of room where all the children were sitting nicely waiting for us.

Rani told us that all the children are waiting for us and for their breakfast too. My friends have already informed Rani that we are going to sponsor the breakfast on that day. There are 25 children ( all are boys ) of ages 6-12. All are in their uniforms starting to go to School. After our introduction to the children they started singing the Bday song for me. It was so nice, I lost myself in that song. None of the film song or so called pop songs are that good as that Bday song. Then I have started distributing all the sweets that I have bought to everyone sitting there.
 Every one started telling me 'Happy Bday akka'. They made my day with that wish.

Breakfast started and I along with my friends started a small chit chat with Rani. The monthly expenditure of each child is 2000 rs, includes all the medical and nutritious diet. What is this medication for? Shock to listen that each and every child there are HIV positive effected. Their parents died because of the same problem and now these children are on the same page. Nilofer hospital has become their native place and Shanti Nilayam has become resident address.

The total expenditure of the house is 80k per month. There are no proper floating funds for the charity. Rani and her husband has started this charity around 3 years back and Rani's husband was a doctor. But unfortunately she lost him because of silent heart attack 3 months back. But Rani keeping her hopes high running the charity with out leaving the children in the middle of the journey.

Could not control myself after listening all the story that Rani has told us. Those children don't know that because of someone carelessness or mistakes they are the ones who are going to suffer. Children will be loosing the immunity power day by day and all the disease effects very quickly to them. If they are lacking the nutritious diet means that they are one step ahead to the heaven.
Satya's experience:
I felt very much glad to participate in such a good event. i feel happy to be with small children and to see their glowing eyes.. its our duty to help the kids and to the society. Thanks Narendra for getting such a thought-provoking one which made me participate in such a happiest occasion. we should learn a lot from the coordinator who is taking care of such kids with a lot of patience. we need to still extend our helping hands for those kids for their education, as they need financial support for getting promoted into the next class.

Special thanks and belated wishes to Durga for sponsoring the breakfast on 4th Jan!
