BSSS Dev Aahaaram
"The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer."
These words of Mahatma Gandhi have been the motivating force behind the launch of the noble initiative of BSSS Dev Aahaaram on 14th September, 2018 from the premises of The Bhopal School of Social Sciences. The sight of long queues of attendants of patients hospitalized in AIIMS Bhopal inspired Rev. Dr. Fr. John PJ., Principal BSSS to conceptualize a system of providing free meals/breakfast every morning to the needy at AIIMS Bhopal. Also with an objective of involving the young generation to lend a helping hand and feed the needy without any inhibitions has led to the participation of almost 1000 students of BSSS in rendering their services towards this noble cause. Hours before sunrise, several members of the BSSS family (students, teachers, support staff, well-wishers) gather in the Dev Aahaaram kitchen to prepare breakfast for 500+ people. Strictly adhering to standards of quality and hygiene in preparation of food, BSSS Dev Aahaaram has emerged as an association that caters to bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots. Birthdays are no longer celebrated at restaurants; they are now celebrated with Dev Aahaaram. Contributions are made towards Dev Aahaaram to pay tributes to departed souls. The entire BSSS community under the dynamic leadership of Rev. Father Principal Dr John PJ has come forward with the Dev Aahaaram Project to make humanity a little more human.
We hope to connect with more helping hands and reach out to a larger community with Dev Aahaaram in the near future. As John Bunyan has rightly said
"You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you."
