SOCIAL EXCURSION 2019

On 22nd December 2019, when the world was getting dressed up for Christmas, students of Xavier Business School chose to spend it in an unconventional way. They visited the Howrah South Point Specially Abled Children's Home at Rajganj, Jalpaiguri.

This place is a residence for a group of differently abled children. A small function was arranged for their entertainment where our students danced, sang and recited stories to entertain this special group of kids. The most surprising fact was that these kids were extremely enthusiastic and passionate about dance and music themselves and they performed small acts for us to enjoy. This acted as a subtle reminder for all of us to value what we have been gifted with, which we so often take for granted and how we should always do whatever little we can for the less fortunate ones.

This day taught all of us how compassion and love as a weapon can help us fight the world. We saw only pure joy in the eyes of these beautiful souls right from the time we entered the place and handed over balloons to them. As for our students, their hearts were full and the whole place was filled with people with teary eyes and the brightest smiles. After a day full of games, music, dance and prayers we bid farewell to these wonderfully special people with a promise to visit again very soon. We did our part and Christmas could not have been better.
