where’s passion …

… bell rang and my wife welcomed in three young women into the house.

I found out that they were from an NGO working for the betterment of destitute girl children in Mumbai. They had come to seek help in form of funds.

In conversations I happened to ask -‘So how do you raise awareness in your target group? Do you hold any awareness campaigns‘.

Pat came the reply – ‘Oh no! we don’t go there. Any normal person would not want to go there.

And they spent next few minutes trying to justify their stand and I do understand their reasons. However, I guess they ought not to be flat-out denying an important task which forms a core part of their NGO’s function. Whichever way you look at it, it isn’t advisable ringing bells to solicit funds and advising the donors that people caught in unfortunate circumstances aren’t normal or people who choose to to be in their midst are not normal!
