Hope smiled from the threshold of the year that just came, whispered that it will be happier and in the same spirit, Chandigarh based NGO ‘I Am Still Human’ welcomed New Year 2017 at orphanage and old age home, Kartar Asra.
The emotions of humanity, humility and integrity dominated the Christmas-cum-New Year celebration on January 1st, 2017. The members of the organization along with the founder, Vivek Mehra celebrated the birthday of an orphan girl by cutting a cake. A drawing competition was held for the students with a view to pay an ode to the unsung heroes- the army soldiers. Children were distributed sweet delights and were even given surprise gifts.
“This is the best New Year celebration I have ever had. Thank you so much. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year” said a 10 year old boy, Gurnoor. Syncing with the thoughts, Sonal Jain, member of IASH said, “We all are humans by destiny, but being humane is a choice. I am glad to be a part of this organization, and contribute my bit to the society in the most solicitous manner.”
The children were all happy to have some delectable rajma-rice for lunch. The day concluded at a melodious note, with a few musical performances by the organizing committee. IASH gave the children and the society a new ray of hope as we step into the New Year, with their very generous deed on the first day of 2017.
