 For The Joy Of Giving 

Date of Publish - Wednesday, 28th March 2018

Just as the Chinese proverb goes " The more you give, the more you receive" the whole concept of giving is one of the most soothing, satisfying and  genuine feeling among humans Just little snippets of one's love, compassion, time, wisdom and gratitude can make this world a whole better, happier and healthier place to live in. True giving comes totally selflessly from deep within without any expectation of reciprocation or reward.

The history itself has shown us a never-ending list of people involved in philanthropy that have stayed happy throughout just by making small sacrifices to keep their fellowmen happy. Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, DR. APJ Abdul Kalam are all just a few names that top the list due to the simple and selfless life they lead and gave everything they could for uplifting the needy. The smile they carried along over their faces is evidence to the fact of how happy and satisfied they felt after investing in giving.

There isn't much one has to do just little gestures can contribute to a whole new wave hitting the society where every individual does his little contribution, but together it all looks big. It could be donating money/ books/ clothes to orphanages, or just sponsor the education of that intelligent and smart child whose parents can't afford it. It could also be by giving your time and support to the depressed and emotionally unstable friend of yours or by giving out your knowledge and wisdom to someone who cant afford tuition but needs them. It could also be by giving your hand to the blind old man trying to cross the road or just by giving your love and compassion to your grandparents who have selflessly loved you all your life.

Ever felt the missing element of love in life? Give and spread love. Ever felt any missing element of happiness? Give and spread happiness. Did you ever feel that you need a hearing ear? Be that hearing ear in someone's needful and bad time, because at the end of the day anything and everything you ever did reciprocates and travels back to you. To conclude, here is a quote from Charles Dickens "No one is useless in this world who can lighten the burden of others."
