My First Day of 2021 !!!


Here’s wishing everyone a healthy 2021! This New year’s day is indeed memorable to me, a day full of broad smiles, excited tiny voices and happy faces.

It was all of a sudden I felt the urge to do something for the kids on New Year day who are sick and not in a position to celebrate. It was for the first time I thought of helping someone whom I do not know. And I was sure that the kids in the Children’s ward of Ernakulam General Hospital shouldn’t be left out. At once, I spoke to my classmate, Dr. Sreeja, who is a paediatrician there and got an idea about the formalities. She was very encouraging.

Soon, I was in the Children’s ward with a bag of gifts appropriate to one’s age and gender. I would like to thank Dr. Noushad for giving me the details of each kid and for getting consent from the superintendent, Dr. Anitha. I also would like to thank Dr.Bilu and Head nurse Sheela (my college mate) for their support and help.

Handing over the gifts calling out their names was a wonderful experience. It was so pleasing to watch them unwrap the gifts, play and walk around in excitement with their toys and board games.

And, as an educator, I wish all my students and everyone in their families would make the needy smile whenever possible!!!
