Mahatma Gandhi said, “The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”
He also said, “So long as you do not take the broom and the bucket in your hands, you cannot make your towns and cities clean.”
Our respected volunteer Prof: Dr Sara Varghese and her neighbours Dr Lilly and Ms Laila followed precisely those quotes. They undertook the cleaning of the D-lane of Pothujanam Road, Thiruvananthapuram, for a whole year.
They decided it cost ₹5000 and donated that to Pallium India.
