Meet this 71 year ‘young’ lady from France. She has been visiting India for the last 26 years and every year she brings kilograms of stuff to India to donate it to the poor and needy people in India.
Travelling to places like Varanasi and Khajuraho she meets and interacts with different people and finds an opportunity to help them. A great person at heart and full of life she believes in ‘recycling’. She makes crazy stuff out of waste materials, like a toy from used water bottles, a key ring from corks, earnings for little girls from beer caps, a turtle toy from champagne n beer caps again, etc.(she taught me some tricks). Also, she believes in not wasting a single piece of food or a drop of water, so she keeps every piece of food and every drop of water which is being wasted (she kept the food offered to her and left by co passengers in Shatabdi Express) and gives it to the poor and impoverished.
For such a generous lady ‘there is no exercise better for heart than reaching down and lifting people up’. A 29 year widow after working for 40 prosperous year at a reputed oil company in France, has devoted all her earnings to help people around the world. Not only India, she travels to other countries of the world, too. She chose India as she believes people here need help….she says that she does not have her own kids to pass her talents so she believes in sharing it with everyone she meets.. The only question which comes here is this that a loving lady from millions of kilometres away, breaking all the boundaries, can feel the problems in this country but what about we Indians?
