“I have recently experienced this thing when I came across a situation while I was traveling to Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh.

I saw this elderly woman lying near Govt District Hospital in a very pitiful situation. Initially, I was hesitating to help her thinking she might be mentally ill but finally I approached her and asked ” Amma kya hua kuchh madat karu? khana laau?” and she agreed in her  language.

I bought some food and sat near her and helped her to eat that food. I did the same activity on the same evening, worrying about what will happen to her when I will be going back to my work after 2 days, how will she survive.

But then, I experienced something, two young guys approached me and said that they also wanted to help this old lady but were hesitating. They said that her relatives left her here to die and they were thinking if we can ask some NGO or old age home to take her and help her.

Suddenly, the conversation converted into a mission and we decided to dedicate the next day for this activity.

On the morning of September 6, we talked to sir Amarjeet SinghSudan ji, a well-known social worker in Indore. He asked us to send some details and photos so that he can talk to some NGOs, we clicked some photos and we thought to share it on social media as well just to fasten the operation.

By noon, Amarjeet ji confirmed that there is bed arranged at Ujjain and we need a letter from police authority for approval. But due to some technical reasons, that was getting delayed as police authorities could not approve it without background verification.

Meanwhile, the message spread over social media, and we got so many help calls from some individuals and NGOs and also from some journalists, who after learning about the problem, they suggested to go to the SP office or collector’s office and also said that they have contacted them and we just need to approach them and all help will be done.

As soon as we reached to Khargone collector Mr Verma, he immediately called the CMHO and other authorities to help the elderly woman. Even before we could reach back to that location, this elderly women was already taken care and admitted to the hospital and administration told us that after she gets recovered, she will be transferred to some old age home.

The magical thing is that all these above circumstances took place in less than 12 hours.

This inspires and motivates not only us but to many people around that if we really want to do something good for someone, there will be plenty of hands, NGOs, Media, Administration to support us, just take the first step.

If you really want to help others, people will join you.”
