sympathy are ingrained in human nature. At times, they need to
be stimulated and stirred. Sometimes, a very small impetus can
work wonders. Here is a small act of kindness we can easily
do. In fact we should set an example of it.
We have so many
unused items lying in our house – many of them perhaps we will
never or seldom use in the future. Our drawers, cupboards,
cabinets, boxes, suitcases and wardrobes etc are replete with
so many of these items. Many a time, we do not even remember
that we have them and we end up buying new ones in their
place. To name a few of them: medicines, stationery items,
shoes, cosmetics, purses, clothes, school / college books, odd
pieces of furniture … and the list is unending.
such items should not be difficult.
Let us collect
all such items and gather them at a place in our houses
specially marked for this purpose. From time to time, these
goods and items can be given to the so many needy that may
come our way. If some of them turn out to be mere junk, they
can be sold to junk-buyers and the money be used for charity.
Better still, the junk can be just given to them as a help.
The only thing
that we will require to make this “collection” grow would be
to periodically cleaning our drawers and cupboards etc. We can
fix for example a Sunday for this purpose.
