जिद, गुस्सा, गलती,

लालच और अपमान

खरार्टों की तरह होते हैं

जो दूसरा करे तो चुभते हैं

परन्तु स्वयं करें तो

अहसास तक नहीं होता


आप स्वस्थ रहे, सदा मस्त रहे

We will need 52 sponsors (families, group of families or groups) who can provide Sunday Lunch over the course of one year, with each sponsor hosting lunch once a year. Several families have already signed up for this. We need more volunteers.


    Thank you!
