Almost 5 or 6 years ago, I went to India to meet my family. I was on my way home, stuck in traffic, waiting for the light to go green. A kid touched my hand, I looked at him and he asked for some money. He said he was hungry. I never gave him anything and told him to go away. Till that time I always believed that we should not be encouraging the beggary. When he turned to go I noticed a tear in his eye and a big infection at the back of his head, or it was a wound, I don’t remember. My cab driver tried to give him some money but he just left without saying anything. I felt really bad. This incident still haunts me to date, even after 6 years. I can never forget that. Since then I’ve been thinking of raising some money or doing something for these kids, but have not been able to do it. This year I got a chance to raise some money for kids through Children in Need charity. I did a photoshoot of some friends and colleagues to raise some money. It was great fun. Everyone just enjoyed it and we all had a great time. A big thank you to all my friends who took part and helped raise a little bit of money. If you are reading this post, please support the charities who work with children. I will.
Here are some pictures I love from the day.
