The coronavirus has been rapidly spreading around the world, but do you know what else is spreading like wildfire? Kindness.
As the pandemic continues to shake up the world we live in, there are still some good things that surface in the face of the crisis. Efforts to spread kindness and compassion in all forms can be seen even though many parts of the globe have been put in lockdown.
One excellent example is what Soumya Swagatika Swain has done. Soumya Swagatika Swain is pursuing Agriculture from COA,OUAT, Bhubaneswar, Odisha and is now in her second year. She used her talent at poetry for a fundraising project – a greater cause.
She writes poetry according to a theme selected by people who request it and she collects donations in return. She was overwhelmed by the people who have generously extended help. She even had the honor of handing over the cheque amount against 37 poetries to Shri Suresh Mohapatra, IAS, Development commissioner-cum-Addl. Chief Secretary and in presence of Mrs. Rupa Roshan Sahoo, IAS towards the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, Odisha for COVID-19, who are the topmost bureaucrats of the state.
Indeed, goodness and compassion are some of the things that remain true in this world. And no matter how big or small, there will always be ways to lift each other’s spirits and sprinkle kindness to those who need it the most.
