In a heartwarming story showing the compassion and innocence of children, class 2 students of a private school in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar district gave their pocket money to buy a wheelchair for a differently abled girl.

Usha, a 10-year-old girl, studying in a government school in Harkewala village, a few kilometres away from Ridmalsar, visited Stepping Stone English Modern School for a function.

Khyati, a class 2 student, saw this girl walk with great difficulty and was moved by her pain. She wanted to know why she was having this problem.

After going back home, she asked her grandfather, a retired ayurvedic doctor, about the girl and why she wasn’t able to walk properly. Taking this opportunity to teach the young girl about economic inequality, Khyati’s grandfather explained how some people are not able to afford such facilities because they are very poor. He suggested that she could help the differently abled girl by using money from her piggy-bank.

Without any hesitation, Khyati agreed to help the girl. She also asked 25-30 of her classmates if they would like to invest some of their money for a good cause. All the students in her class readily pitched in too, and with contributions between Rs 100 to Rs 1,000, they managed to gather enough money to buy a wheelchair. Impressed by the children, the school administration also gave money for the worthy cause.

They gave the wheelchair to Usha, few days ago. She is the daughter of an agricultural labourer. She is also deaf and mute.


The Logical Indian applauds the efforts of the students for helping the girl and reminding us that it doesn’t take much to change a person’s life.
