08th April 2022.
I was about to finish my Instagram Live session, when I invited Ankan to come live with me.
He was a 10th class student from West Bengal.
And he was struggling to pay his school fees, because of which he might not be able to sit for his exams.
I offered to help him with his school fees.
The expression on his face was priceless. He couldn’t believe it.
I, honestly, was quite emotional as the session came to an end.
Seeing someone struggle so hard to fulfil their desire to study, is heartbreaking.
It was a harsh reminder of the privilege me and my family enjoy, where we take such things for granted.
A few months later, I got the wonderful news that he cleared his class 10th board exams, securing 91.4%!
The power of help is beautiful!
Help, because you can.
Help, because it flows forward.
Help, because you too will need it one day.
