It is easy to be a critic but at the same time if someone is doing a great job, miss not a chance to appreciate their efforts. Here is a short video on ‘Mid Day Meal’ program funded and operated by government as well as private organizations. A foreign national had to capture this great documentary on the mentioned program to bring in mass awareness. People are fed up of corruption and all other irregularities when it comes to government authorities. Hope this video brings in a new dimension to think that there are few gems as well in such systems.
Came across this video recently and couldn’t hold back from sharing it with you all. Though it is a lengthy video which runs for about ~15 minutes, watch this. You will thoroughly enjoy the video and the motive.
Though I have been contributing to ISKCON’s ambitious program called ‘Akshaya Patra‘, I would strongly recommend you too to take part in this noble cause. Do visit their site for more information and how the whole system is implemented. You can make online donations by following this link

Hi! It’s a nice post indeed. It is really good to know that people are well aware of the malnutrition in children and they are lending a helping hand towards these kids. Keep on propagating the awareness!

This is Justin from China,I am so impressed by what I have seen and heard there in Inida last year for 4 months,like India’s Free Lunch Program and barefoot movement by Bunker Roy,the founder of Barefoot College, which helps rural communities becomes self-sufficient,they are so amazing.I just wonder whether these can be applied to China,as China and India have lots of similarities,but it might be tough to do here,anyway,I will plan to try something smaller but influential in my city,do you have any advice,thanks
Finally i got a meaningful blog ! We should help spread the awareness so that such efforts get more support.
So impressive! I’ve heard of this! The video is just awesome.So glad these kids aren’t going into starvation!
Yes! Glad you liked the effort these folks are putting in and the best thing is we can be part of it too!
Congratulations…. I have lost count of your winning entries now ;). You deserve every one of them. Keep blogging and keep winning.
thank you Farila. Well, this wasn’t written specific to the contest. This post was written months ahead of the contest announcement. As soon as you find something good around, wait not to write about it and spread the good news to help the cause. That is what I did and glad this was chosen as a winning entry 🙂

Great post, Mohan!
Nice blog ! Thanks for writing about Akshaya Patra
It is my pleasure to join hands with such great force to spread the awareness! How minuscule ever may be my contribution is, i am sure it will bring some smile on a needy bright future of India 🙂
Great post, Mohan! I just blogged about it too! Season’s greetings and so happy to see that so many bloggers are making their year end blogging really meaningful!
Thanks for the support extended Sharon! Let me head over to your blog 🙂
Thats such a noble cause that we all are working for…
I feel so happy!
Absolutely… more hands for more smiles!
You rightly said, its easy to criticise. We should help spread the awareness so that such efforts get more support.
Thanks for seconding my thoughts!
Dear Mohan, thought provoking blog post which is attempting to kill two social evils, corruption in Govt sector and hunger with a single arrow. But I think, corruption is not confined to public sectors only and it has entered private sector also because it has become India’s way of life. Only a revolution can save us from this monster who is spreading his arms to all walks of life.
Can’t agree more Mr. Kamath! Thanks for visiting my blog and congratulate you on taking part in this noble cause of spreading the word through your blog.
writing for great cause.great!
Thanks Pratibha! Saw your article too. Good going!
hats off to ur eforts for a very nobel cause…..
Yes, it is Raksha!
Shrinidhi Hande says
there were some noise about corruption at ISKCON… not sure what happened to it
Hi Shrinidhi, it is better to see the brighter side of things when the cause is noble! There will be people always trying to defame someone for personal gains…
Hi! cudnot see the video, as its not accessible from here. but u try to spread word about such good things, thats commendable.
Thank you very much. Do see the video once, you will feel that the time spent watching this is video is absolutely worthy.
Hi Mohan ji,
I had commented earlier but my comment did not show up.
Is it a mistake or you don’t feel me fit in your space here .
I really liked your contributions and blog management so felt like sharing my idea.
I am really sorry if I have offended you in any way.
its there,I must have overlooked it.
Ah… np! keep coming back!
Hmm.. i still see it!
Nice video….. Let me post this video on my site and spread the awareness!
Feel free to do so!
Hi! Thanks for sharing Mohan:) I hope to explore this little bit more:)
Good start! All the best!
Its a very good endeavour,to get awareness among people.
Iskcon society is really is doing a marvellous deed and really what i feel is
when we share or give, we really do get much more.
Lord Buddha has said, “If one knew what he was getting in giving, every one would be rushing to give.”
It is! awareness is something not up to the mark… lets spread the news.
very rightly said.
I know of a Dr. Parikh in agra,has arrangements witha fivestar hotel,
Their extra food is delivered to Iskcon daily by him.
Similar arrangements can be tried out.
Awesome, could you share more info on that?
‘Akshaya Patra’ is getting funds from big quarters apart from individuals so they have no problem but there are many smaller NGO’s and even individuals who are working for this cause and needs support and encouragement too.
I agree, but the sheer scale at which ISKCON is handling things takes it to the top of list!
When I started reading ur post in the reader, I ws thinking abt the Akshaya Patra too. They serve really nice food the the childre. Yes, people need to look beyond complaining about Indian roads and corruption!!!!!
Thanks for sharing the video 🙂
That was an easy guess! My pleasure Swaram.
what a noble cause. i’ve been contributing to akshay patra too. Feels so good to actually see whats being done. The kids look so happy. 🙂 I will double my contribution this year all thanks to this video.
Me too! I am delighted to see such great appreciation from foreign nationals.
What a lovely post Mohan!!
The video is really good. Not that i didn’t knew of this movement but the scale of operation was just an eye opener.It lifted my mood for the evening and am feeling elated to be a Indian!!
Alas, i hope we could do something similar to improve our infrastructure too….
Thanks for good work
Thanks Raja! I just feel so great about being a part of the system, how minute ever may be my contribution!
