Selfless Service begins at home

Diya, Anjli and Nitya had formed a ‘Service Club’.It’s objective was to serve the orphans and the needy.

Diya: Anjli,please send an email to ‘Vishranti Foundation’ and inform them of the donation amount.

Diya:Nitya, please write an article detailing the services that our Service Club provides.

(At home) Mum: I’ve had fever since afternoon.Will you help cook some oats? Diya:I’m tired.Please ask grandma.

Next day.... Grandma: Diya, your mother is still unwell.Can you please get these medicines for her.

Diya:Grandma,I have to rush grandma.We have our Service Club’s meeting before school at Nitya’s place.

Grandpa:On one hand,you’re working to serve people and on the other hand,you aren’t serving your own mother.

Grandpa:Diya!Serving your parents is the greatest religion.Service begins at home and then with everyone else.

Diya (leaving in a rush):But today’s meeting is extremely important. It cannot be cancelled.

(At Nitya’s house) Anjli:Vishranti Foundation has liked our work.They’re coming to give us a service award.

(In school) Principal:Service Club has made the school proud and earned blessings from the poor and orphans.

Principal:On behalf of our school,I heartily congratulate them and honor them with this service award

Principal:Tomorrow,a newspaper reporter is visiting our school.They’ll publish an article on the Service Club.

The following day,Diya was very excited to go to school.Just as she was leaving for school,the telephone rang.

Anjli: Diya, I can’t make it to school today.My mother has a high fever and needs to be looked after.

Diya: But today the newspaper reporter is coming.How can you miss such an opportunity?

Anjli: How can I miss the opportunity of serving my mother Diya? You all are there to share the information.

Anjli:My priority is serving my mother rather than having an interview or photo featured in a newspaper.

(In school) Reporter:Where is your third friend? Diya:Her mother has fever and hence,she could not come.

Reporter:Great! Looking after her mother?An opportunity to show that selfless service begins at home.

Reporter:Anjli,daughters like you,who help both their family and the society,are ideals for the society.

Diya:I served with an expectation of appreciation from others but Anjli has truly given selfless service.
