Banjara Academy's Gurukul Children on a Picnic, Bengaluru, 11 July 2017.

On 11th July 2017 the counsellors working in Banjara Academy's Gurukul, the school for Special Children, went on a picnic with the adventurous children of Gurukul who were full of enthusiasm. This field trip was to give the children an experience of the open and free environment. Lots of bonding happened as safe activities to express their emotions and change their perceptions were conducted which turned out very fruitful. Change of place and travel is a learning by itself.

Thanks to Sonal Patel for the write-up and images.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
