What to do with an old lightbulb?

At our children's home, we try to reuse items that would normally be thrown away. Sometimes, the kids and house mothers get pretty creative in this area. Check out what they did with an old lightbulb!

January 18th

A tradition in India on certain dates, such as the death anniversary or birthday of a loved one, is to provide a meal or food to others.

We thank everyone who has provided our kids with a meal or snacks on such an anniversary or birthday.

In particular, we thank the seven grandchildren of Sri H. S. Krishna Iyengar, who recently made a significant donation to us to help us feed our kids at Karunya Mane for many, many days, starting on January 18th. Mr. Iyengar would have been 100 years old this year, and he must have been quite an amazing person, as evidenced by his kind and generous grandchildren.

Thank you so much.
