We delivered 50 Khichdi Dabbas today. It was a Palak khichdi. Used the Matta rice which is easier to digest and was made in ghee so that it is mild on the stomach. Our initial plan was to give food to policemen on duty & ambulance drivers. #Update (1)
On our way to Sasoon Hospital we have to policemen and to rag pickers. As we reached Sasoon compound we realized the family members of the patient been treated at Sasoon also needs food desperately. #Update (2)
The family members of the patients are usually found in & around this place. From tomorrow we are also providing food to these families in Sasoon & other govt hospitals in Pune. #Update (3)
We have decided to include these families for our Khichdi Dabbas as well. I know it is a Herculean task but what doesn’t challenge us doesn’t make us strong. I promised Dad to be stronger each day. #Update (4)
We use paper containers because they are healthy & food grade. We also tried to give bottled mineral water because that was also a dire need due to the weather. Every person sent tons & tons of blessings for all who are supporting us. I have no words to express. #Update (5)
One of the ambulance drivers came to me and said these drivers are earning 3 times more than normal times more than us these people who are waiting to hear from the patient need the love of so many people. Please give our food to them. #Update (6)
When a Khichdi Dabba is delivered I tell them my extended family which is all of you are supporting this initiative all which ever means have sent this for you. On giving the Dabba and saying the same he said tell each one Dhanyabad. No one cares for me. #Update (7)
I can’t thank each one of you. We will be going 100 Dabbas from tomorrow. Hopefully the numbers will grow as our family is growing. Keep sending your best wishes & blessings. #Update (8)
