The first year MBA students of Department of Management, Amritapuri of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, visited the Gandhi Bhavan at Pathanapuram on 13th November, 2017.
As a part of the active participation and humble donations from the students and faculty, more than 600 dresses and also some money were donated. The visit to Gandhi Bhavan showed the students another facet of life. The people (Kudumbangangal) at Gandhi Bhavan live in the present and rejoice every moment because of the truths life has taught them. They seemed to have a very different concept of life. The dedicated team of volunteers loved and cared for them as a family, their life is now peaceful and joyous. The Kudumbangangal shared their experiences with the students and the one thing that they all advised them was to: “Live your life peacefully and share love”.
"We each had our personal takeaways from the visit and one thing we learned was to spread happiness around us. There seems to be no greater blessing than bringing a smile to another’s lips even for a moment. And such moments become memories to cherish for eternity," shared the students.
