“A few years ago, when I was at an old age home, I was chatting with one of the old women there. She told me she felt like having chai and jalebi. It was 2.30 am. I asked her to sleep and promised to have it ready for her the next day. Early in the morning, I bought both the items, gave it to her and went home. A few hours later, I received a call saying she had peacefully passed away in her bed after breakfast. Although I was upset that we lost her, I was happy that I could fulfill one of her last cravings. That satisfactory and happy feeling was unbeatable. Since the beginning of Good Samaritans India, I have had the opportunity to help so many needy people of different age groups. We started a home for them and take good care of all the members there. But it has been pretty challenging. We don’t get funds from the government or other bodies, just some known people help once in a while. I started this because of my interest to help people. There have been times when I couldn’t pay my children’s school fees because I spent the money on the home. My wife, who is a teacher, has supported me from the beginning. When we couldn’t afford a female nurse, she bathed the women members in the home. It’s not a business. For us, it is just helping anybody in need.
Growing up, I always learnt to be caring and selfless. Even in school, you play with all the kids and share your lunch with them. You don’t discriminate based on caste or religion. It’s the same principle that has guided me all my life. I’m a strong believer of Christ. Instead of just praying and believing in his ideas, I execute them by doing social service. Honestly, this is not my responsibility alone. As a human being, it should be instinctive to help a fellow human in need. If every child is taught that kindness and love are what the world need, the next generation will make this planet a better place.”
