Messangers of God
By Dr. Sunil Ji Garg on 23-09-2015
A white colour Toyota Innova vehicle stops near a tree on the roadside on a highway. A man in his forties comes out with a packet wrapped in a white cloth. He quickly puts this packet under the tree, gets inside the vehicle and drives away. Few villagers see this happening from a distance and they run towards the packet. And, as they doubted in their mind, it was an infant child. Villagers knew it well, how such things take place. They went to their village head, who called the nearby police station. Policemen came, took the child in their custody and called this NGO in Lucknow, which is about 100 kilometers from the site of this incident. Finally this child lands up with this NGO. This NGO is run by a husband and wife in their late sixties. A man retired from his engineering career and a wife still serving as a doctor. In terms of finances these people are quite low on their finances. Whatever they had earned, they have spent on upbringing of infants thrown on streets or put inside the garbage bins. They are doing it from past two decades. When such children grow a little bit, may be of around two-three years of age, childless couples come to him for adoption. Local administration has well recognized these people and whenever any infant on street is found, they contact this NGO. If the child is not adopted by anyone due to some ailment or due to some other reason, they keep them at their house and arrange for their education. For young children at their home a seventy year old man is PAPA and a sixty five year old lady is MUMMY. The environment at their house is magical. It is amazing to see an old man changing spoiled clothes of a six months old baby, not once in day, but many times for many children. Mummy cooking food, preparing milk and also controlling oxygen of the incubator is another interesting thing that keeps happening all day long all along the year. The sounds of rattles and lullabies’ can also be heard at different moments. The couple says that in return, the biggest gift they get is the smiles and sweet voices of these young souls. For them, God has given them the opportunity to serve him is this form. In my view these people are the true “Messengers of God” for these young children.
