Hunger – Do you know how it feels like??
Prelude : Narration
It was half past 11….my collegue sitting opp to me suddenly looked up….I smiled sheepishly and said “sorry”…and then in 5 mins everyone started smiling at me…..I was like “OMG,kya keroon??”.
One of them came and said, “Its ok dear, we will go for lunch in 10 mins :)..I guess you did not have breakfast!” Now I guess you understood what i was talking about! Ya, these were strange sounds coming out of my stomach, that made my collegues smile at me! And Ya you are correct….I did not get anything except for baked beans on lunch..Gosh its wednesday – no vegetarian stuff!!Then I had to wait for about 5 hrs to get back to may home and cook!!
Leaving all that behind….I felt so bad feeling hungry, burning in my stomach and even drinking water numerous times did not help!!
It just came over my mind, How bad people who dont get food at all would be feeling??? How bad their stomachs would be growling??? In my very own country, how many people eat atleast once a day??? We tend to complain to our moms this is not there, thats not tasty etc…..dont we?? And thats human nature cant help….but we can help in some other way!! We could help someone who is need always…..Today, I decided, I am not going to waste food anymore…And would definetely do something atleast if it feeds one person!!
I dont know about NGO’s and how they work….I dont know how well, if help rendered, reach the person in need….I dont know, how much I could help anyone financially…….But What I know is, I can offer food definetely!! Not as alms, never, but I can share!!
I sometimes wonder….if anyone feels the need to contribute to a cause/someone,why all these formalities before it reaches the person??? Is it because, it would reach wrong hands?? Or is it to create a platform for a common cause?? Might be so!! But for something happening before your eyes, do you need all these stuff?? I dont feel so….I cant wipe out hunger and poverty but I shall do whatever is in my small hands!! And I hope all my readers also agree with me and do something in their hands!!
I dont call it a service….I call it responsibility!! Do something while you can!!
Guys, come up with better ideas if you have!!
PS: I know, I felt only tiny winy bit of hunger….But it did tell me a lot!! And hence the title!
