On 27th April, 2013, Niharika Shishu Kunja High School conducted ‘Free Water Distribution Program’ on the special occasion of Baishdhara Purnima, a day celebrated each year to mark the inauguration of the beautiful park that boasts of twenty-two stone waterspouts. Hundreds of people visit the park on this day to celebrate this occasion. To help beat the summer heat, Niharika Shishu Kunja High School generously decided to offer free drinking water to people visiting the park.
With five girls of Lit Club Nepal (Anjana, Sadikshya, Deepika, Sailaja and Manisha), I reached Balaju Park at 10 o’clock in the morning. It was a hot summer day so the timing of our arrival seemed perfect for the program. Everything was already set as planned: the tent, chairs, cups and many jars of water. One of the teachers of Niharika, Mr.Yubak Raj Parajuli, was already there to help us proceed with the program.
The girls stood there patiently and happily the entire day offering water to people who were thirsty. Many people appreciated their work and dedication. Some even blessed us for our service. The program continued till 5 in the evening. I feel proud to say that the girls and Lit Club Nepal as a whole did a really good job on that day. They were able to understand the importance of helping others and the feeling of togetherness could be felt.
I would like to thank Niharika Shishu Kunja High School for giving us the opportunity to participate in such a wonderful and fruitful community service. Also, I would like to congratulate the girls of Lit Club Nepal for their great achievement.
