Have you wondered what causes young kids to hang around at railway stations? There are many children across India who run away from home for trivial reasons. Some children are abandoned by their guardians and some kids go missing mysteriously. These children feel totally helpless when they come face to face with the overwhelming railway network. This Tuesday let your random act of kindness could be to reunite these children with their families.
Bhibhu (age 14) ran away from home after his parents got into a fight and sought help from a friend who promised to help find his mother. His friend abandoned him halfway. Alone and scared, he was found at the Ghaziabad railway station by the team of Railway Children India, a GuideStar India Transparency Key certified NGO.
He was taken to a shelter home for safekeeping but, poor Bhibhu completely scared out of his wits with this terrifying ordeal couldn't even speak to anyone. Not even the very people who were trying to help him. With Bhibhu unable to communicate it was impossible to locate his family.
But the team at Railway Children India was undeterred. Through repeated counselling sessions with a speech therapist, Bhibhu was slowly and surely getting his confidence back! He was finally able to speak, exercise his facial muscles, and show emotions and give some details about the whereabouts of his family!
After 6 long and lonely months, Bhibhu finally spoke to his overjoyed parents who got back their son! But they still remain to be together because of lockdown restrictions and COVID-19.
Bhibhu was fortunate to have landed in the arms of Railway Children India and not the many evils and pitfalls that await unfortunate children who fall into the black hole of the railways' network. Beggar mafia, drugs, pickpocketing, and thieving, and many other such lives are ready to grab these vulnerable children.
Your small donation can help Railway Children India to seek out countless Bhibhus who find their way into the pitfalls of the harsh life on the tracks and stations of the vast railway network in India. Say #MaineDiya and help children like Bhibhu make their way to the safety of their families.

This week Rohit Thukral reminisces with us about his #MyGivingStory as a young child during Diwali.
Rohit firmly believes that happiness lies in helping the people around us and not in the pursuit of money. He is deeply saddened in the misconception that many people hold - more money equals more happiness. He hopes that his story can help spark something in all of us to be a little more compassionate and spread kindness.
Rohit was a young 16-year-old boy enjoying the sights and sounds of Diwali - the festival of light. While he did see the light in children bursting crackers and adults having their own fun he also saw the oft-overlooked darkness - street dogs scared by the loud sounds of the crackers and the less fortunate people on the streets barely able to get a meal. This dichotomy of a festival that was supposed to bring joy and happiness to everyone really touched him and sparked something in him.
Young Rohit, immediately ran back to his house and broke open his piggy bank in which he had been saving money for a long time. He used this money to buy some food for the needy outside his house and the dogs. He went and fed them and spent time with them and learned of their troubles and lent them an ear. Young Rohit's act of generosity helped shape him as a human being. He was able to sympathize with the people around him, and that has stayed with him till today. We are really heartened by his selflessness and kindness towards not only his fellow humans but animals as well.
Rohit has an important message for all of us. Festivals, he says, are about spreading happiness. And no amount of bursting crackers (that only cause pollution) or buying new things will give you the satisfaction that helping people will. So go out and spread kindness among the less fortunate and put a smile on their faces!
Do a random act of kindness and create sparks of joy wherever you go!
