A gift for SHLOK

t was yet another Saturday morning for SHLOKers @ the GMPS, Puttenahalli when this incident happened.

Keerthi who is one of the major contributors @ this school came across a boy from class 5 who made a strange request.

He said that he wanted to give a pen to Darshan (Darshan is one of the founder members of SHLOK and currently @ the US)

Keerthi wrote to Darshan about this request and he replied saying ‘ Let the kid keep the pen’

So when Keerthi went back to school and told the kid to keep the pen.  He replied in return stating that he didn’t want to keep the pen, rather he wanted to gift it to Darshan who had taught him quite a while ago!!  There are some incredibly talented kids who could benefit from our volunteering efforts and able to leapfrog ahead thanks to our efforts.

Please do take a read some of our earlier stories which tells you how volunteers have faced similar touching experiences through
