December 5th, 2015
We may share grieve and stand by the people of Chennai who have shown immense strength till now. But there are people who go out of the blue and do something which many would think a thousand times.
Ram Kashyap, resident of Bangalore is one such person. He shuttles between Bangalore and Chennai with the relief materials to provide respite to the affected persons stranded in Chennai.
On the first trip on December 3, he carried materials like food, containers, paper cups, umbrella and raincoat, etc. In order to collect all the materials he wrote a facebook post informing people about the plan.
He along with his friends makes 14 points in Bangalore so that any body can contribute easily. This helped in contacting more than approx 1,200 residents of Bangalore while 250 volunteered to help him in collecting all the required essentials.
All the items have been delivered promptly. Ram will further continue his trips to Chennai and has set up the document with all the required information for those in Bangalore who want to contribute. He has shared the account details so that people can contribute with money for fuel and other logistics.
