Missing sports and the fun in my early childhood days, but safety of the family comes first. Walking down the lane with my new companion I cant resist now, the mask we all wear to make sure we are not prone to the deadly corona virus. Yes please dont take it lightly and hope you all too are not compromising on wearing it and washing your hands in intervals while going outside.
While crossing the road outside vasari hill slums, I was mesmerized to see slum kids playing with a coconut shell in such a beautiful way. I could not resist to watch them for some while and then the idea knocked my mind. Can we train these kids into volleyball players…
The Keeda started raising his head in my mind. Lion Balakrishnan Iyer, a professional volley ball coach, our board member was a perfect fit for the job of training the kids.
Lion Balakrishnan Iyer immediately accepted the challange and the very next day he was among the kids with volley ball and nets. He started training.. gifted volley balls and nets to different age group children so that they can practice the game. Kids from nearby buildings started joining the practice session and the smile started spreading. Har story ke peechhe ek Keeda hota hai.
Really inspired by the gesture I just thought if one member of our club make such a difference, imagine what the 1.4 million Lions Clubs members across the world can do. I would also like to apraise the efforts towards creating Service Journal by our buddy Lion Rajesh Salian. Thanks for helping our thoughts to be ideated to the world in a matter of seconds. Would surely write again and read more inspiring Service Stories, the generous donors across the globe have to say.
