Celebrating Hamilton’s birthday at Prativa AshramOctober 2, 2018
Supported by- Ekankita Agrawalla and Deepen Sahoo
Our first GaBy at Prativa Ashram and indeed a memorable one. The day was going absolutely normal for Hamilton and little did he expect anyone to remember his birthday let alone celebrate.
We arrived at around 4 P.M. with a birthday cake, balloons and chocolates. The children’s eyes were filled with joy. The birthday boy Hamilton would be celebrating his birthday for the first time among his friends. The children were very playful and filled with energy. After the cake cutting and chocolate distribution was over, we thought of taking the children outdoors for some fun activities.
Badminton, Volleyball, Cricket, Street Dancing and what not. The children didn’t want to stop. With some cool street dance moves and famous Bollywood steps, the young ones felt like celebrities in front of the camera. After an exhausting one and a half hour outdoor session, we returned indoors and sat down for the evening prayer.
Three students sang the prayer after whom others, including us, repeated. It felt we were in a different world, living a different life. As we came back, we thought that till the time we don’t feel like home here, we will do whatever it takes to achieve it. The first GaBy at Prativa Ashram and indeed a memorable one.
