29 Jan Volunteer Den – Himanshu Khatri
Project in Bhumi: Kanini
Tell us a little about yourself!
I am just another inquisitive and empathetic human being who has hopes and dreams to make something of his life. I study Aerospace Engineering and aspire to be like Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam.
How did volunteering with Bhumi happen? (Including beginning, which project you volunteered for)?
I volunteered for Kanini (Computer Education) right from the start. I wanted to devote some part of time for betterment of the lesser fortunate part of our society. I chose computers because it is a very important skill to have in this time, because technology has taken over the world by storm in the past two decades.
What change did these experiences bring in your life? How has Bhumi altered you, personally?
I developed as a human being because my students taught me how to appreciate small things in life.
One most memorable incident in your life as a Bhumian
The students I was assigned were unmotivated in the beginning. It used to take quite a long time for them to assemble. But eventually, they started assembling for the class before the time. And that’s when I was able to see that I could really make an impact.
Tell us about one Bhumian, who has been an inspiration
Varun Khunger is a Bhumian I really respect. He was working a very difficult job and still managed to take every class. He also developed a good rapport with the children.
A message to every volunteer at Bhumi
Keep working for the common goal. It all works out in the end. You will get there eventually. Be persistent and patient. The gratitude that you might feel is natural.
