Lighta lampThis Diwali, Light a life

This Diwali,Light a lamp but when you do that also let the light spread to the far off, the under previliged,the Unfortunate and needy.

Like for example the floods in AP,Karnataka have affected the lives of atotal reaching anywhere between 3million (NGOs say) and 2 million (Govt agencies put it that way).Eitherway they are not just simple statistics they are lives of the fellowhuman beings. Human beings and even their cattle, their crops and other living beings. What we can do now is pray and along with our prayers ACT Send them however small it may be but our contribution to save and have them a chance to get back their lives.

People out there affected by the worst floods in 100 years, no fault of theirs, so lets give them a chance, a chance to stand upon their legs. And not pity by sending them some used clothes.

So pick up your pen write a cheque, Draft or contribute online.
