A remarkable initiative which should be followed All over India
I had been to Coimbatore last week. Behind the Sai Baba temple , I saw a peculiar Structure.It had one refrigerator on one side and a shelf on the other.It was called “Dhina UnavaU” meaning “daily food “. There was old ex secrvicemen sitting on a chair near the structutre .The purpose was explained on both sides of the structure (one side Tamil and the other side English)
In short what was written , was,
1.Any body can leave any food (Remaing excess in the house ) in the refrigerator .This could be taken by any one who needs it
2.Any other used item which people can spare can be left on the adjoining shelf. I found lots of cloths and used foot weart in it.
3.The security would not interfere with the process but would help any one who wants to place and who wants to take.
What a remarkable idea.No body in the locality are throwing excess food and excess material. It reaches the poor without fan fare as they know it and they take the well preserved food. . I saw that it was run by a trust called “niran Prabha” and it does not have a web site.
If possible please start doing this great act of Charity, Ramachander
