It came as a surprise when my company offered a trip to my friend and me all the way to Geneva for a week. It was to present the various activities we do for the good of society in a town-hall being organized there.

The Swiss airways flight was from Mumbai to Zurich and then from Zurich to Geneva. It was the month of February and we were already warned of the cold weather there. The flight was about to land at the Geneva airport when I caught a glimpse of the majestic view outside. The mountains were illuminated by the glittering snow and the land down had all shades of green which were well organised into different sizes of various square shapes. And at that instance I knew what to expect from the beautiful land.

It was midnight when our bus reached the gates of Hemalkasa. A group of people were visible in the shed located in a corner. It seemed like they had made a temporary shelter of this place.

As it was very late we were taken to the guest house. It was a simple and clean building with basic amenities for few human beings to stay peacefully. After a delicious free dinner we were taken to the auditorium where a short film on how “Hemalkasa – Lokbiradri Prakalp” came into existence was shown. A quick bath and our group of 20 tired people were in deep sleep that night peacefully absorbing the silence of the forest surrounding the place. A silence that is unknown to the city life.

Our bus moved slowly across the tall sunlit trees in the afternoon. Farms of cotton were visible every now and then. The guide who accompanied us told that we were near Warora in Chandrapur district in the state of Maharashtra. As we moved ahead, the board “Grampanchayat – Anandwan” started becoming visible, and with it one could witness the selfless services few human beings had to offer to the society. I had never in my wildest dreams thought that there could be people so deformed and unwanted by others until my visit to Anandwan.
