What makes a dull day dazzle? A reason to smile. And what’s that one thing that never fails to bring a smile to the face? Sweets. This Diwali, to add a little sparkle to the lives of those who make our city dazzle, Drishti Foundation Trust and the Throttle crew distributed sweets & clothes to the waste segregation workers of the Urban Community Department of the AMC at Heera Nagar, Ahmedabad. The clothes were donated by the clothing brands and the donors of the DFT Cloth Bank.
“The irony about traveling to find happiness is that you don’t have to go too far to find it as it lies right under your nose in your smile which manifests when you see others happy. This year, on Diwali, we found our happiness in bringing comfort and happiness to those who risk their lives to keep our city clean and keep us safe.
The crinkle of a smile around the eyes that surfaced at the mere sight of sweets, and a tight hug on receiving the woollens & shoes donated by our donors were our biggest rewards from the drive.
We thank the Throttle crew, all our donors, volunteers, and the DFT team members for supporting us” – Dinesh Kumar Gautam, Founder, Drishti Foundation Trust.
