For Our Brothers On The Border, Sending Our Threaded Love! - Happy Rakshabandhan

Wannathankyou/24th August, 2018

We all know how big a difference a small act of kindness can make. Imagine the impact of a magnanimous gesture. Team WannaThankYou came across such a gesture, and we are excited to share all about it with you!

The team got in contact with Riddhima Pareek, an employee in Paladin Organization, who had a very interesting story to share. She introduced us to Arpita Mathur, an advocate in High court Jaipur Rajasthan, who, with the help of few NGOs, has taken up an initiative to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with the BSF Jawans in Rajasthan.

Arpita's dream of making this campaign a reality was strongly supported by her father, Shri Anil Mathur.  She also got in touch with our point of contact, Riddhima Pareek, through whom she came across organizations like Emporis and Paladin. The staffs from these organizations were more than happy to come forward and help her in this campaign.

“We are celebrating all the festivals because of our brothers on the border. Through these Rakhis I want to tell them that we are together. Everyone has an artistic mind, but most of the people don't follow their heart. So with this activity, I wanted to bring everyone together.  I firmly believe in Karma and Mathematical Equality, and so, as my gratitude towards those who serve this nation, I feel I should return those gestures and spread some smiles on their faces :) 

Whatever I'm doing is something that I believe everyone should do. It is more like a moral duty to me. Spreading smiles in itself is something I'm proud of and I try to connect our new generation with the historic events and festivals of India.”, says Arpita about this initiative.  

Arpita also has something big planned for this Diwali, where she is trying to connect the whole of Rajasthan as much as possible. We cannot wait to know more about this upcoming event!

Arpita, who is an advocate by profession, says her Senior Advocate Shri RB Mathur inspires her to always follow her heart and never be afraid of experimenting with life. She is passionate about art and has been running a group called CHIRMI for the past five years, where she teaches Art and Kraft.  

You are such an inspiration, and we wish you all the very best for all your future campaigns.
