didi & bhaia

Your hands are so small

yet in three weeks they have become my world

you can hold a universe between your finger and thumb

you are the sum of e v e r y t h i n g

 

and then you sung!

 

you spoke and projected for all to hear

I felt so proud

and you danced and you smiled

and you showed no fear

when many twice your size would have cowered

 

full to the brim of aspirations and surprises

we shared few words but each minute spoke thousands

sores on your hands only make us hold them tighter

 

it breaks my heart over

and over

and over

when your sisters said they wish they were whiter

 

 

Because I have never seen so many beautiful souls

How much of a hold you have, I doubt you will ever know

9 hearts captivated by three weeks in your presence

Your small hands are the seeds of change and promise you will be allowed to grow

Be allowed to flourish and bask in a society that respects you as much as we do

Anything we do from now, we do it because of you

Snehalaya – JustGiving

Hi everyone,

I made a JustGiving page in preperation for going to India next year in August. It seems really far away right now but I’m sure after the new year things will happen quickly!

My JustGiving page

I’ll try to keep the page really up to date. The first confirmed fundraising event is an absail down my university’s tallest building in April! I want to organize lots of other events too.

Have a lovely festive few weeks everyone, eat lots of food and relax wherever you are
