At the Angel's Orphanage

Yesterday a group of new Thoughtworkers demonstrated what "Social Responsibility" truly means. For the first time in my life I was able to visit an orphanage. I always wanted to, but I never had the courage. I thank my students from TWU for getting me to a place amongst God's own children. I dont know where this started; if it was Roy who inspired them or a calling of their own, but it happened, and the experience has been fulfilling.At the same time, there's a part of me that feels sad and may be disappointed with my ownself. I realise what Roy means when he says we're privileged. When I was a kid, I had the privilege of a good home, excellent education, parents whom I could crib to, play with. To see 40 children in a home as small as the one we were at was heart wrenching. To see them play in a dusty yard, with little access to fresh running water; to know that they have one common toilet (donated by a social service outfit) makes me realise how little my contribution to society has been.

To think that with small contributions from every privleged individual, these kids could live a better life and yet see them in what I'd call a far from ideal atmosphere, pains me. I'd like to go to this place more often and carry out my responsibility towards society. I am a bit carried away with my emotions at this point-- stuck between thanking my good fortune to have parents; and understanding my place in this world. All I can say is that yesterday was a great learning experience, and I am extremely proud to have learnt this lesson from my students at TWU.
