First of all, just to clarify, I don't have kids of my own. Now, let's continue.
I've been working at the LEU Foundation NGO for 3 years now and with closer and closer involvement with the children at the foundation, they've become a part of my everyday existence. And now comes the time to say goodbye to them.

This past Wednesday was my last visit to the school where the children are taught. I tried to explain to them where Los Angeles was on the map, but they couldn't seem to get the concept of anything beyond New Delhi! I also explained that I was going to study for the next two years and one of the kids actually asked, "You have already studied so much. Are you going to start from Nursery again?"
There's a lot that we can do for economically marginalized families. At UCLA Anderson I'm looking forward to the Challenge for Charity (C4C) and I'm very appreciative of the fact that the money raised through this event goes to some excellent voluntary groups that support underprivileged sections of society!
