At a time when newspapers are filled with a number of negative stories everyday, the following story is bound to fill you with positive emotions.
In a heartwarming tale of compassion, the class second students of a private school in Sri Ganganagar district pooled their pocket money to buy a wheelchair for a Divyang girl.
Usha, a 10-year-old deaf and mute girl studying in a government school in Harkewala village in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar district, visited Stepping Stone English Modern School for a function.
Usha, daughter of a labourer, was not able to walk properly. Seeing her pain, Khyati, a class second student of Stepping Stone school, narrated this incident to her grandfather. He suggested that students can help the Divyang girl by using money from her piggy bank.
The idea struck a chord with Kyati who decided to ask 25-30 of her classmates to help Usha.
Everyone in Khyati’s class pitched in to help Usha and with contributions ranging from Rs 100 to Rs 1,000, they all managed to collect enough money to buy a wheelchair. After coming to know about their efforts, the school administration also donated some money for the cause and Usha got a wheelchair.
Clearly, it is a touching idea to help a needy person move around freely.
