Rotaract celebrated Independence Day by visiting Shanti-Bhavan on the 15th of August. Shanti-Bhavan is an Old-age home located in the tranquil and serene hills of Rourkela. The sick, destitute and estranged people live there, where they are taken care of in a very soothing environment.
The Rotaracters went to share some light moments and bring a change into their otherwise routine lives. They talked to the people to know more about them. The new members got detailed information about the working of the organisation.
Afterwards, a cultural programme was presented by the first year members. The major attraction was the skit titled “Modern Anarkali”. The skit was found to be very hilarious and was heavily applauded. The effort put in by the new inductees was evident as the whole skit went on flawless! Best parts were the “ads” in between the whole story. Further, Rotaracters sang songs and two dance performances were also presented to the audience, i.e., the occupants of Shanti Bhavan. The old people also sang folk songs, which were truly enjoyed. They thanked Rotaract for the wonderful program. The people were really happy with the efforts of Rotaract, satisfaction was evident on their faces.
Again, on Saturday the Rotaracters went to Birsa Munda School. They gave a small awareness lecture about Independence of India and the various personalities associated with the freedom movement. The children were very responsive when some questions were put forward to them. This is an important project in the annual calendar of Rotaract Club.
There’s a saying that “The happiest people on earth are not those who get more, but those who give more”. And Kudos to the Rotaract club who are taking every bit of this words too seriously and are on the right path. We wish them for their immense success.
