Independence Day celebrated with a difference with slum kids in Udaipur

The 74th Independence Day celebrations were different in Udaipur as Being Manav, an NGO dedicated to spread smiles amongst the underprivileged children, spent some lovely moments with the slum children and made them aware about the stories related to freedom struggle. 

Following the norms of social distancing, these kids were distributed masks and then came the engaging session where these slum dwellers were made aware on how Indians fought hard to shoo away the Britishers to liberate India from the clutches of slavery.

Being Manav in fact, also promoted the book donation drive aggressively in Udaipur on I-Day.

This drive was launched a month back in the city under the joint aegis of Municipal Corporation National Urban Livelihoods Mission, Hotel Radisson and Rotary Club Udai.

Over 500 books collected under the drive will be kept in a library van parked at Fateh Sagar Lake.

The drive which started a month back has books written on diverse range including biography, fiction, subjective, science and poems.

  The NGO made a call to all to celebrate this independence day with a difference by donating the books for the welfare of society quoting a reason, ‘Padhega India Tabhi To Badega India’

Don’t you think both the incidents realised the long-cherished dream of renowned poet Rabindra Nath Tagore who wrote some beautiful lines visualising India in a rather different form. 

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Into that heaven of freedom my father, let my country awake.. Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls Where words come out from the depth of truth Into that heaven of freedom my father, let my country awake.
