Volunteer Section

People volunteer for a variety of reasons... religious, social, personal,etc.... but whatever may be the reason you want to volunteer your gracious act would surely transform you and in small little ways the world around you. Volunteers form a powerful group that  organizations leverage to implement projects and create community participation. 'Volunteerism' in today's context is not confined to students, housewives, youth, elderly or any other such groups. It is also the professionals with management / engineering / doctorate background working in corporate houses contributing their knowledge and experience to the social sector.

For those of you who want to volunteer, but have not taken the plunge, here are a couple of reasons why you should get into it right away:

First, volunteering makes an important economic contribution to society. If it weren't for volunteers, many activities would have had to be supported by state or private funding. Volunteering helps channelise these funds into other areas.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, volunteering helps build strong and cohesive communities. It fosters trust between citizens and helps develop norms of solidarity and reciprocity, which are essential for stable communities to flourish. Volunteering has its share of delightful perks - chance to travel, meet new people, and acquire life & career enhancing experiences and skills. Volunteering does not require a special degree or prior experience. It is simply a willingness to help. Your interest, skills, enthusiasm, willingness, and commitment are wonderful assets to any organization.

This will be a place where you can volunteer for the skills you have.We may join hands to organise an event/activity around it or approach you to impart knowledge to the desirous. Keep watching and do send in your valueable feedbacks...we'll get in touch with you soon...

Robert Durey Osborn on Imam Husain

(1835-1889) Major of the Bengal Staff Corps.

q       "Hosain had a child named Abdallah, only a year old.  He had accompanied his father in this terrible march.  Touched by its cries, he took the infant in his arms and wept.  At that instant, a shaft from the hostile ranks pierced the child's ear, and it expired in his father's arms.  Hosain placed the little corpse upon the ground.  'We come from God, and we return to Him!' he cried; 'O Lord, give me strength to bear these misfortunes!' … Faint with thirst, and exhausted with wounds, he fought with desperate courage, slaying several of his antagonists.  At last he was cut down from behind; at the same instance a lance was thrust through his back and bore him to the ground; as the dealer of this last blow withdrew his weapon, the ill-fated son of Ali rolled over a corpse.  The head was severed from the trunk; the trunk was trampled under the hoofs of the victors' horses; and the next morning the women and a surviving infant son were carried away to Koufa.  The bodies of Hosain and his followers were left unburied on the spot where they fell.  For three days they remained exposed to the sun and the night dews, the vultures and the prowling animals of the waste; but then the inhabitants of a neighbouring village, struck with horror that the body of a grandson of the Prophet should be thus shamefully abandoned to the unclean beasts of the field, dared the anger of Obaidallah, and interred the body of the martyr and those of his heroic friends.
