Today our college’s society – Enactus went to a slum for some research work trying to know more about the residents’ lives , the difficulties faced by them and the relief given to them by the government .
It was an enriching experience and a unique one ! Talking to these people who were born in these situations and have not been able to fully get out if it was something else . One would think these people would be cursing life and not be happy but it was the exact opposite . People were earning adequate income to run their family , children went to schools and were happy , some aspire to be doctors .
There obviously were some problems like clean water in some places and children landing into drugs but the want for improvement and hope was seen in their eyes .
