Devdutta Maji, (President - SINGHABAHINI).
Due to growing requirements to serve the society I have decided to launch this fund raising campaign to serve the poorest of the poor.
The occasion of Durga Puja / Navaratri is an occasion of immense joy for every Hindu. It is the soul of our existence. Durga embodies Shakti , destroyer of the evil. She also represents love and compassion of a mother. And as we celebrate the festival like every other year, many in the community will go through the coming winter and the year ahead without experiencing that love and compassion from the community. Our organization SinghaBahini, named after Ma Durga has taken up an initiative, to start a movement, to reach out to the poorest of poor in the community. It is in them that Ma Durga resides. It is in them that the survival of our civilization rests on. For those who are at the margins of the society, those who are vulnerable, needs to be protected. Our community stands protected, when Ma Durga's blessings reaches the poorest of poor in the community and it is our duty to to carry Ma Durga's love and compassion to their doorstep.
Serving the poorest of poor Hindus has been the foundational belief of SinghaBahini. We started this organization after having the good fortune to serve the Hindu community for over decade. During these years we have learnt that the success and failure of the community lies in how well we serve the poorest of poor in the community. How well Dharma reaches out to their doorstep with the accumulated blessings of the community members who can afford something to spare. It is given in Bhagavad Gita , Chapter 9, Verse 26, "If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.". The poorest of poor in the community is our Krishna, our Ma Kali, our Ma Durga. Whatever you can offer to serve them with, they always accept with folded hands.
This year on behalf of SinghaBahini we plan to provide the following items to the poor, specially the Tribal's and the below poverty segment of our community. We intend to provide new dresses to about 1800 individuals, children (both female and male), old age men and women as well as youths (female and male), I appeal to you for your help and support.
If you plan to wrap the items with the name of your loved ones, in the memory of your near or dear ones, we can do that as well. Please donate to stand with the poorest of the poor in the community and please indicate in your donation your desire. Name of the person for whom you want to dedicate this gift to be given to a poor Hindu. Pictures will be provided to you of your gift item being donated to a needy Hindu. The items are
