Sriman Shiva Pingle’s Statement below in his own words…
I contributed Â£25 to the blind students because they canâ€™t see the world around them. The blind people visualise the objects around them if you say for instance to them, â€œThe flower has yellow petals,â€ they wouldnâ€™t know what yellow is. They would also not know what a petal is; they might think a flower is a circle as they might feel the same. So, if you donate money to them – they would get a chance to learn & feel things by training to recognise them by touching.
When I was driving to the Shamshabad – Chinna Jiyer Swamijiâ€™s Ashram I saw a blind person holding on to another blind person, walking slowly out of the College, that was when I felt pity for them and donated some of my pocket money to them.
In future, when I get older I will not only donate money to the blind people also to the poor people. When I get a job I shall keep on donating not only to India but also to places around the world. Serving people is like serving God (my mother says Manava seve Madhava seva).
