Children's Day

The program was held on Thursday 14 November 2013 at 4 pm at Banjara Academy, RT Nagar, Bangalore

Children's Day this year was very special at Banjara Academy. We decided to honor special children who had overcome the obstacles Life had thrown at them and had emerged as winners in their own right. A team of Banjara Volunteers went around identifying such children. The children came along with their parents or other significant adults in their lives to enjoy being felicitated by Mr. Gadkari, the well-known figure in the field of mental Health. He is another inspirational figure who has done great service for the cause of such children and continues to do so even now.

The entire album of the event can be viewed on Banjara's Facebook page.

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
