Kevi Rite Kaishh

I distinctly remember the first day at Samvedana when I was asked to interact with school kids and conduct a theatre workshop. I was in despair, communication was difficult and things just didn’t seem to work out.

When you have just come out of college and are about to step into the real ruthless world, a place like Samvedana prepares you with a perspective to look at this world with compassionate eyes. I have seen the world with these eyes, I have experienced it. I have felt the joy in giving, and I have received the warmth in return. I have learnt to live a life full of giving and not just being selfish. I have learnt to appreciate for what I have.

I distinctly remember the first day at Samvedana when I was asked to interact with school kids and conduct a theatre workshop. I was in despair, communication was difficult and things just didn’t seem to work out.

The next day, I had another trick – to be with them, be like one amongst them and the ice finally broke. After that day, there was no looking back, these kids are a family now.

Some of them have grown so big and gone so far, it surprises me when they bump into me at a corporate office or at a restaurant. To see them grow, gives that immense satisfaction of being able to nurture, being able to participate in shaping their future, being able to grow with them, being able to share and being able to be your own self.

Samvedana as a family, will always be closest to my heart. I thank Samvedana for bringing in a dynamism in my character and in the human being that I am today.
