Ah finally started to write my first blog, a bit nervous, it can’t stop the MADness in me really. But what to write, how i should start, i am novice here. Lookng at some of the blogs, i questioned myself
“What is that everyone is trying to do & what’s my role here? ”
After i put my mind to some thoughts, i begin to wonder, imagine & fly like free bird
– spread the word of MADness. Yes, spread the word of MADness like everyone else.
So i will start from, how my journey began with MAD.
It happened one day, i woke up that morning after having a dream, but it was no ordinary dream. It was something else which i never did have. I saw a child who was looking at me with eyes of desire, wanting to convey his feelings to me. But i did not hear any, instead he took my hand & held it. And the moment he did, i was awake.
I woke up to reality, did i? asked myself. I began to see the world in a new light, the world for which my consciouness wasn’t awake before.
I took my pen, a sheet of paper & began to write, what i should do. Then i started writing….” For every hand in need….”
The moment i started i was amazed with the happiness i was feeling, my Heart was filled joy. In the first quarter of my life, i was always asking, why i am born, what ahould i do here for umpteen number of times, for which i got the answer today. I decided to serve humanity is one reason of my existence. I thanked GOD. Slowly my life was revealing itself to me. I felt like i am re-born again.
Here i would like to share my piece of writings with all you MADsters & to the external world.
” For every hand in need, i will sow a seed.
A seed of strength, hope and love, untouched by the weed.
I shall stay in the line, in every rain and shine.
And watch it grow, a life divine.”
I think this is what the ommitment the people here at MAD knowingly or unknowilgly are commited to in enhancing the lives of many children in many ways. Making their lives more colorful & helping them realise thier true potential. Above all, telling them that they have a fair share as everyone does.
Recently MAD-Hyd held a summer camp on 29th, 30th & 31st of May ’09 which i should say is a feather in the cap of MAD. The list of events planned or the enthusiasm with which MADsters participated & made it big was to make all the children dream big & set goals for their lives.
And here in this context, again i tried to cheer up all the MADsters, i penned down my thoughts. I dedicate the following lines to every MADster who was associated with MAD in the past, present & will be in the future. Keep the Spirit of MAD ALIVE
“ Dark was the sky, a light came by.
Gave wings to fly, to soar real high.
With wisdom to sly, & say the evil good-bye. Kids learn to fly, with a MAD-fly. “
Look at their faces, do you see it. The happiness one gets can be expressed in words, but if one has to really experience it, one has to come forward & do it. That is the spirit of MAD, which runs through every MADster, always giving enough strength, motivation & to rise above the occasion when needed, the will to work for children.
And i know, there shall never be a dull moment in my life. I am finally MAD.
Do i stop here no, i have just begun, my first steps with MAD. I began my career.
First Experience with my MAD children:
I went to interact initially with the children @ Don Bosco, along with my bunch of real MADsters. It was in some parts a learning eperience, undestanding their tastes, habits, the way they do things, see the world & where MAD steps into their small world with big ambitions. We all played football, i have to admit the fact that i am lagging in Physical Sports a little. But never say NO to learn new things in my life. I played with them, shhhh…. i have to reverse my statement here. They played the football, with all the sidekicks, goals & i kept chasing the ball in vain. They are too good at it.
And not to mention, it was the same dream which brought me into MAD, i saw in their eyes clearly. And i am set to Make A Difference.
What i saw in their eyes, its a little difficult to express exhaustively. But of what i have understood so far, trying to listen to their Hearts, i want to express.
I dedicate it every child here at MAD in particular ( and even for all those who are waiting to get some help, whose hand is yet to be reached )
“Sitting in your lap, I begin to clap.
The world will tap, seeing my purple cap.
To the world’s end, have my worries lend. (and)
I see no end, when you’re my friend.”
I salute the Spirit of MAD.
