Do to Gain

Posted: October 20, 2015 by kiranf9 in Uncategorized

There were events where it took long duration of hard work, draining us completely out. Though in both the cases, task was completed successfully, but this one was different.

I am talking about the event: Volunteering for Krishna Sadan – Kitchen Cleaning.

I am not explaining on what we did, for that please read it out at: Facebook Event
I am here to share How it went…

The day was so fresh and healthy,
We stepped in to the home with no idea on what task we will be given, I take it a good sign here with Krishna Sadan. (many reasons). When said about Kitchen Organizing and Cleaning, we have no clew on what can we really make or where to start with. (we are new to this kind of task)
We looked in to the kitchen and we didn’t felt it bad, it is in moderate condition. Look like cleaning selves and re-arranging / re-positioning few regularly used utensils will do the job, that’s how we started.
Slowly this list was getting bigger as we progress and ended up in doing(majorly)… dusting out whole kitchen to the possible reach, fridge cleaning(external), checking up each box/utensil and their contains, discarding the expiry, moving out the un-used, new arrangements and placings, buying new utensils in replacing few discards, kitchen platform and tiles cleaning(hard core, took almost 2 hrs), stove cleaning, soap washed the flooring…etc

All these adding are done out of volunteer’s willing not by anyone’s force or to gain someone’s impression.
Believe me, Platform and stove cleaning was not at all easy.

Know what, the difference is, we didn’t knew that we have done it all.
Yes we worked, yes we sweated, yes it was 7 Hrs of task….
But here’s the difference…. No weren’t drained out, No we weren’t out of energy, No we weren’t irritated…

This was something special.
Though we Volunteers had good understanding, cooperating among us and leading to our strengths, I don’t think we are the main reason of this extremely satisfied and joy filled day..
It was absolutely something else which had greater impact than ourselves…
Guess… it might be the positive vibrations that Krishna Sadan itself has / GOD willed and it all happened

Of what ever the the reason is, we volunteers experienced this energy.
After the task, mentally and physically we were as fresh and energetic as we were about the start the day, indeed we were much stronger!!. Leaving from Krishna Sadan, we just remember that we enjoyed the whole day

It is not easy to keep these emotions in text. Even today after a month from the event, when trying to recollect what we did in cleaning the kitchen, I could memorize only the good feel we experienced and nothing else.

Thank your KRISHNA SADAN and Krishna Mohan for giving this task to SAAYAM CHEDDAM and being the reason in giving us such lovely experience. And not to forget Rithika (KRISHNA SADAN’s volunteer/staff) for the lovely fellowship.

It’s not like I / We not happy with other events till now, NO not at all. In every constructive event we all had joy and be satisfied, but after every long hard working day we usually feel strained physically. And in this event, that physically down wasn’t there, that’s the difference!!
