The attached blog describes a recent visit by Dinesh D. Dattani from Toronto, Canada to SKSN in December of 2010. He went there with a friend, Niranjan Joshi, and this journal details his experience at SKSN:
SKSN Blog – for Polio Children
Wonderful report on activities of Polio Children and the impact an Indian NGO (SKSN) is having on a small part of rural Rajasthan. Excellent photography adds to this very informative article.
I read this blog and I was instantly inspired. It is amazing that organizations like this exist, and even more admirable that there are people like Dinesh and Niranjan who make an active effort to become involved.
This blog was very informative and I hope to get involved myself with the organization! Excellent pictures as well – they really help capture the mission of SKSN and show us how resources are used
I enjoyed going through the blog and appreciated both the photos and the commentary. It will certainly help inspire people to either donate or contribute their time to this or many similar causes in India. The many smiling faces made me happy and the photo of the boy who can write with his feet remindsed me of my first trip to India in 1987 – which completely changed my perspective on wants vs. needs and not-taking any ‘necessities’ for granted, as is easy to do so growing up in Toronto.
Wonderful and Inspiring is all I can say. The excellent photography makes me feel I am actually there. The smiling faces show us that these children are actually content with everything they have. In the West, there is so much we can learn from this. Let us not forget SKSN in our busy lives. Get involved and stay in touch
Want to thank Dinesh for taking the time to write about our visit and also to thank friends and relations who donated £450, with which I bought gifts for the SKSN children whilst there (basic stuff eg sweaters, soap etc)
Dinesh: Thank you for this wonderful blog. As I read the blog and enjoyed the lovely photographs, I felt as if I was with you in person in India and going through the thought process so aptly penned by you. It is heart warming to read some thing positive about India and I am sure there are so many such stories which never come to light.
Warmth, welcoming smiles and the pleasure of giving – I wonder who is more blessed?
You should travel more often and write more………
Dineshbhai: Wonderful blog and really enjoyed reading about SKSN. Admire you taking time and visit such a place which is full of energy. Amazed and hats off to these boys and girls courage. My heart jitter when I saw them playing physical game like kabaddi. I felt that while read your blog, I was physically experiencing SKSN, it was very enlightening feeling. Dr Bhati and Paul Ulrich commitment is remarkable.
Great blog Dineshuncle – The use of pictures and your writing skills made it a great journey to follow. Thank you for sharing!
