Shraddha is an organisation that focuses on development and inclusion of autistic and mentally challenged young adults.
We had last visited Shraddha in May this year (Week 12 of #100aWeek). Since then we have wanted to revisit.
For Week 40, we once again padded up for a cricket session with the young adults. It felt nice that a few of them remembered us and were literally jumping with joy on seeing us.
The cricket session saw quite a few good straight drives. With a lot of us scrambling to bat and bowl, it took good management from the teachers of Shradha to maintain field discipline.
Post cricket, we all did a prayer of gratitude. This was followed by donuts from Mad Over Donuts (we are so grateful to them for always supporting us). An anonymous donor also sent Dairy Milk chocolates for all the children.
Mihir Jogani shares from his experience at Shraddha:
“My elder brother Gaurav is the most important person in my life. He is a special child.
One of the biggest blessings God has given us is the love and laughter of special children. They have only pure love for those around them. Their affection is non pretentious. In that sense they are the most authentic of all humans.
Spending time at Shraddha reminded me of how much there is to learn from God’s own special children.”
