A series where we bring you stories of the #Khaanachahiye food ninjas, our on-ground partners and the people who we serve, who all are together in this fight against COVID-19.
My experience in multiple kitchens of Khaanachahiye was full of challenges. But every time, we overcame them, because all of us are wholly committed to this cause. If we, as a society, fight the pandemic in the same spirit, I believe that we shall overcome this challenge too.
On 24th March, when the lockdown was announced, I became anxious because lockdown meant no business But soon, I realized that there were people whose predicament was far worse than mine
This experience has shown me a new world, that although I am a part of, I never paid enough attention to. I have learned to acknowledge the privilege that I am blessed with. It is a liberating experience
When we started distributing, some people came forward voluntarily and said that they have ration left for a few days. And that there are people in the interiors of the slum who are poorer than them. "वो हमसे गरिब हैं" they say. Can you imagine that? People with only two or three days of ration left, refusing the food we were offering. Instead, asking us to serve others whom they know are in a worse situation.
