This is heart breaking, God bless these 2 guys, Rajesh Kumar Sharma and Laxmi Chandra.  They’ve been running a free school under a metro bridge in New Delhi, India for the last 3 years.  There is at least 30 children living in the nearby slums that have been  receiving free education from these 2 guys.

    It is not money handled to you in a silver platter that defines a person..it is rather the determination.. sacrifices.. commitment . education . grace. .honor and pride all of which assist a person to earn and enjoy a fruitful living

      These two are great examples of what humanity truly is, humble, courageous, giving, creative, and loving. What a shame we value money above these self truths, never seeing what’s inside but greedily driven to what’s outside.

        Very true specially with so much corruption and interference of self interest groups disguising themselves as do gooders but when push come to shove hum that another story. Maybe I am going crazy but I seriously believe that Western civilization is losing its grip on reality.

          It is, the lunatics are running the asylum, if it’s not corporate greed, it is absurd interpretations of the Bible, etc, etc….but the scary part is that it appears millions are buying it. Weird times.

      We are all awesome, but most of us got lost, that is the human tragedy, above we see, in the simplest of forms, the triumph of the human spirit!

    Wow! This is very inspiring. It confirms my belief that human beings are starting to turn the corner from the thought that wealth and power will bring happiness. Thanks for sharing. Adam

      Change is in the air, the huge corporations that control everything will fall as people come to their senses and believe in community again.

    I heard about this a few months ago, and I think it’s fantastic. Really great idea.

      Improvising is also something humans do very well, and here is affirmative action, in action! :)
