I got to know about Miss Pavithra Raghavan, a 3rd grade student studying in USA through her mother Jayanthi whom I got to know through Whatsapp!

Pavithra is a young, enegetic, brilliant and optimistic kid with a lot of character. I have never met Pavithra or her mom. Pavithra needs to do a social service project as part of her school work. 

Pavithra got to know about me and the service we do through Team Everest from her mom. She did a google research to know more about me. After reading my facebook page and blog post, she decided to raise funds for some of the children whom we work with. 

One day, I got a call from Jayanthi and got to know about Pavithra's decision. I am impressed with her attitude and decided to help her. 

This is what the little girl did in her school to raise funds. She first made a collage about me to create awareness on why she choosed me. 

Pavithra is good at painting. She drew some amazing paintings which she sold to her friends and relatives to raise funds. Below are some of her paintings which she drew to raise funds:

After selling these paintings, she needs to put a stall explaining about her project. This is how her stall looked like: 

When I saw these paintings and hard work she has put in, I had tears in my eyes. I prayed to God that this girl should get endless years of life in this world with good health. 

Kindness acts like this inspire me. It is bigger than a noble prize. I feel happy that I was able to inspire Pavithra. It gives me a lot of motivation to help more people in the future. 

This girl has taught us some thing important in life:
  1.  If you are a person who is too busy working all these years, it is time to ask yourself -- "What am I done to society? What am I done to others? What am I done for the people". If the answer is "Nothing" or "So little", it is time to do something back to society. 
  2. If you are a parent, you can show this blog post to your children, talk about Pavithra and motivate them to do something back to society. 
  3.  If you are a student, Pavithra's act shows that there is no age bar for social service. Don't wait to become an adult to help others. Help now. You can do it.

Thank you Pavithra for inspiring me and showing the world what kids can do. I wish you all the best in your life and I'm sure you are going to inspire many more in the future. 

Keep making a difference with your art, thoughts, and acts. This world belongs to people like you. Keep inspiring.
