In the morning, after the Reflection part in the Black Lotus app, I saw the Rak recommendation-Giving free services with your expertise. Instantly, I made a mental note to visit one of my students at her home to offer a free class to her and immediately called her to finalize the time. The student’s financial condition is not stable as her mother, an Anganwadi worker, is the only earning member. The girl, a class X student, is determined and enthusiastic about her studies.
Her mom shared the tragic story of her life with me. When her daughter was ten months old, her husband died. She had to leave her home along with her child because the family refused to support them. She had to move in with her parents. She had been doing manual labour for 14 years to support herself and her daughter. I was moved by her tragic story.
My student lives in a small mud wall house with her mother. I noticed that the only CFL light in the room was dim, and not enough for her to study by. I gave her a good study light and a useful English grammar book. The hospitality which they showered on me created a bond between us.
RAK opens one’s heart and creates strong bonds.
