SATURDAY VISIT TO GOPAL DHAM

On Saturday, I went to a child home (or precisely boys home who don’t have their parents to look after them) named as Gopal Dham. It is situated on Bhopura – Loni Road in Ghaziabad district of Uttar Pradesh. Actually I went there to do some for needy so I was carrying some packets of biscuits and donated amount for one time meal for children. Total 90 boys were there from atleast 15 different states of India. Jammu & Kashmir was at number one because 33 boys came from there. They were victim of terrorist attacks and lost their parents. Indian army picked them handed over to Gopal Dham. These boys were of all age group starting from 5 years to 17 years. They study in public school. An electrician and musicians visit there to teach boys to be stand on their own feet.

I came to know that there is no Government aid for this noble cause as this Gopal Dham run by Sewa Bharti (a member organisation of Sangh Pariwar). It manages all the funding through donation only. Ok leave apart the politics. Return to Saturday!!


We distributed the packets to boys but 16 boys politely refused the offering. We got the answer from in-charge of Gopal Dham, that 16 boys are muslims and on Roja (fasting by muslims) as this is the month of Ramadan. Shocked!!!! Muslims boys in a Sangh Pariwar run home!!!!


I think news channel should go there and spread the message of true harmony (not speeches).
