Bhubaneswar: Under educationist Achyuta Samanta’s ‘Art of Giving’ initiative, a ‘Pyaar Bhara Pack’ was organised to gives the needy children an experience to “taste happiness”.
Around 200 deprived kids from slums of the town were invited to a posh city hotel and were given a menu spreading across biryani to chicken delicacies, Chinese and desserts. To make it more realistic for the children, they handed over dummy currency which they traded over food.
The food wholesome and nutritious meal was sponsored by restaurants in and around Patia, and other parts of Bhubaneswar. “One need not be very rich to give something back to the society; rather one must be poor to know the luxury of giving”, said Prof. Samanta.
