Diwali 2013

10 Nov

One week after Diwali, our Tamil community here planned a celebration yesterday.
Lot of sweets, everyone in celebration mood, Diwali seemed to have extended a week longer to keep up the mood. But this time we did something in addition to the usual celebration.

Hubby dear took a break from his work and worked together with a charity organization in India. Together with Directorate of Education in Dharamshala, he helped to setup a curriculum for schools in ‘Creative Computing’. This is a four year curriculum being implemented in two schools as a Pilot run. I could see that how satisfied he was during and after such  work. He also supported the organization to sell community made products by starting an ECommerce project. This will let them generate continuous fund for their charity work and help local community to have a sustainable income.

I have been thinking to do some something like this for a long time…As my part, I wanted to support him and and do not know how and where to start. Surprisingly some idea struck me and without any delay I went for it.
There was only two days left for Diwali celebration and get together with friends…

I decided to set up a small sweet stall to raise some fund. I made varieties of sweets and savories to sell. We collected some money for charity as most of my friends were supportive for the good cause. We are quiet happy to raise some money to support the ECommerce initiative. Although not a huge amount, I am quiet happy that I am able to contribute a very small part of it… My heartfelt thanks to all my friends who supported me on this.
Looking forward to do another event when I get a chance…..
