13 February 2013

We woke up early to the numerous sounds of Udayan. The day began with breakfast and playing with the children.

After a short while spent chatting and joining in with games, we got on a mini bus to begin the march for the “Leprosy Awareness Programme”. The entire school took part, along with staff, parents of the children and past students. The rally lasted around 2 hours and we battled with cows on the side streets, and cars on the main road! It was all an experience we won’t forget.

Once we reached the end of the march, we began our journey back into the city. We then visited the “Asha Niketan” centre run by Sankar Rakhi for the mentally handicapped. The group of people we met were lovely and friendly; they enjoyed meeting us and we enjoyed meeting them!

Afterwards we visited the house where Gandhi went on his last fast in an attempt to stop the rioting that was taking place between the Muslims and the Hindus at the time of Independence.

We have ended our evening with a VERY spicy meal.

What lovely happy smiling faces! Just loving seeing all the photos. How lucky we are that technology allows us to see what is happening of the other side of the world so quickly.
Continue to enjoy!

We really hope you enjoyed the march and we can see that this is something very close to your hearts. We saw that the children looked happy, how was it being around them? A great experience we think! We are very interested to know what your next adventure will hold and are you visiting Mother Thereasa’s shrine?
You really are inspiring us with your actions and how you are putting your faith into ACTION.
We hope you are all safe and the food wasn’t too spicy
God bless
