Saluting the Spirit of volunteerism by #HSSNepal

The spirit of Swayamsevak
With every passing day in Nepal, my admiration for the dedication of the HSS Swayamsevaks with which they are serving the earthquake affected grows many times. I am watching a batch of 20 Swayamsevaks who were at the airport receiving relief material and transporting the same to Gaushala- the storage place. They were doing the task all through yesterday. The same batch of Swayamsevaks again attended another flight coming from Delhi last night and transported 30 Metric Tons of relief material that includes mainly rice, tarpaulins, ready to cook food, and sundry items till 4-00AM morning today, it was three truckloads of material. I visited the Gaushala this noon to find the same batch of volunteers loading the material to smaller trucks for transportation to various distribution sites. There are no paid coolies to load & unload the rice sacks or packs of Tarpaulins. Most of the Swayamsevaks are college students and youth. The job is thankless and they do not care for even a pat on the back. They just serve untiringly. They are the embodiments of selfless service, I feel.
I salute the spirit of these Swayamsevaks.
