Lead School JMA Pilani distributes Handmade Masks and Provisions for Pilani Underprivileged facing Corona Virus Lockdown

The school takes inspiration from Mahabharat Bhagavad Gita Chpater 17 Verse 20 which says "datavyam iti yad danam diyate nupakarine, deshe kale cha patre cha tad danam sattvikam smritam" meaning Charity given to a worthy person simply because it is right to give, without consideration of anything in return, at the proper time and in the proper place, is stated to be in the mode of goodness. The three-fold divisions of danam, or charity is an act of duty to give according to one's capacity.

The Bhavishya Puran states: danamekam kalau yuge "In the age of Kali, giving in charity is the means for purification." The Ramayan states this too: pragata chari pada dharma ke kali mahun ek pradhana, jena kena bidhi dinhen dana karai kalyana. Dharma has four basic tenets, one amongst which is the most important in the age of Kali - give in charity by whatever means possible. The act of charity bestows many benefits. It reduces the attachment of the giver toward material objects; it develops the attitude of service; it expands the heart, and fosters the sentiment of compassion for others.

The COVID-19 lockdown across India today may be a luxury for the well privileged of the nation but a curse for the underprivileged migrants, daily wage workers and labor. The sudden announcement took them by surprise and shock and their capability to live life with dignity and respect was at stake.
