Celebrate World Food Day with Feeding Hands!

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” Mother Teresa

Today is World Food Day!

When we talk about food, we end up thinking about the food that we love, the delicacies we cherish, the cuisines we find delectable to relish but how often do we think about the Food that helps to fight hunger to the less privileged?

We all are very well aware that access to adequate and nutritious food remains a challenge for many. But there are a few good souls who walked the extra mile to feed those in need.

Today, on World Food Day, Jaipur Beat decided to meet the men behind the ‘Feeding Hands’ – an initiative to feed the underprivileged in Jaipur.

These gentlemen are no celebrity or a public icon, but shining stars with a promise to provide sufficient food to the less privileged people so that none sleeps empty stomach.

We went to meet Mr Timmi Soni and Mr Yogesh Narula, the flag bearer of the initiative but they are not alone. 14 more compassionate people are backing them up in this noble mission.

Here goes the conversation with Mr Timmi Soni and Mr Yogesh Narula of Jaipur-

JAIPUR BEAT – Tell us about the beginning of Feeding Hands 

Feeding Hands- “It started with my father, Iqbal Soni, (Father of Timmi Soni ) on 12th January 2018,  who used to occasionally donate food to widows.

Feeding hands people

On his birthday, we decided that we could do something similar to what Annapurna vans in Jaipur were doing. Hence, I decided to visit one of their vans at SMS Hospital. After I spoke to the boy who was selling meals there for Rs. 8, I realized that not many people can afford even those 8 rupees. It was then that I knew I had to adopt one of their vans and start donating food. I found it difficult to cook and arrange and then look for people to feed. The idea was germinated to adapt an Annapurna Van for 365 days.

About Annapurna Vans– An initiative by the Rajasthan Government, Annapurna Vans are the mobile kitchens that serve food at nominal prices in food trucks parked in different areas of the city . These Vans maintain the quality, quantity, and cleanliness while preparing the food.

Jaipur Beat– Who was your greatest support while establishing Feeding Hands?

Feeding Hands– Our greatest supports are the people around us, our contributors and sponsors. Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to continue for longer.

Jaipur BeatHow do you receive support in terms of people, finances, etc.?

Feeding Hands- “Initially it felt difficult, rather impossible. Contributing 6300 rupees out of your pocket daily isn’t easy. However, we valiantly decided to give it our best. We started speaking with friends and were gradually able to attract people into giving us funds. Sometimes, people drop out, but we always find someone new who is willing to donate”. We are receiving donations as high as 3 Lacs to as low as Rs 10 as well. These people gave us confidence. There are people from Jodhpur, Bhopal and other parts of the country who are contributing to the cause.

Jaipur Beat- Tell us about the challenges that you’ve faced while establishing Feeding Hands?

Feeding Hands- The biggest challenge was to create a situation where people cultivated good habits like washing their hands before eating, not wasting food and more importantly not smoking around it.  If we find someone wasting the food, we charge the full amount from that person. Secondly, sometimes sponsors can be a bit unsure about whether or not the money is going into the right hands.  Every day at Gate no. 5 SMS hospital 7 am morning till 8 pm, 300 breakfast and 350 lunch and dinner meals are distributed. The initiative is so transparent that anyone can go and check how the funds are being utilized. Thirdly, finding the time to juggle between our own separate jobs and Feeding Hands was tough initially.

Feeding Hands2

Jaipur Beat-  365 days without a miss? How did you make this happen?

Feeding Hands– On special occasions like Holi & Diwali when the Van is not available, we still make it by alternative sources. We get the food from Dhabas or restaurants and sometimes even prepare at our homes. The contributions come from various sources, from family, from friends and acquaintances so that no one sleeps hungry. We ask donors to contribute sweets on the occasion of Diwali as well.

Jaipur Beat- What are your plans for Feeding Hands’ future growth or change?

Feeding Hands-  We want to have our own Vans.  Apart from that, we want to create awareness among households. If they contribute the leftover chappatis to our cause of wasting zero food, there would be a day when no one in Jaipur will sleep empty stomach.” Right now we are focused on that no van should be closed.

8 Cool Escapes To Beat The Heat

Jaipur experience all the season in their extremes. With the temperature being 46 degrees Celsius the heat is unbearable. But we, Jaipurites know how to enjoy the best of both worlds, no matter how extreme it gets. Summers in Jaipur is the warmest times usually extending from April till July. But summer is also that time of the year when we can socialize, unwind and relax cause summertime is vacation time. Most of the schools are on break and colleges are mostly inactive. Therefore, as soon as summer approaches we all start making plans for the vacations, deciding the next spot we want to visit, relishing over all things cool or having a water gun fight with your pals. Ah, summer is fun. But we all know Jaipur can get all heated up during summers and if you staying in the city like us then Jaipur Beat will help you beat this heat with these cool escapes.

1. Pool Parties

A pool party is always a good idea in summers, the best place to chill around with your family and friends. Splashing water all over the place and dancing to your favourite beats. Pink City has quite a few options for all the party-loving Jaipurites.

2. World Trade Park a.k.a my second home

Experiencing an electricity cut, worry not. “World Trade Park hai na yarr…” you can go there chill or hang out with your squad, have food at the court and enjoy the window shopping in the air-conditioned malls for as long as you want.

3. Water Park

Water Parks are an entertaining place to enjoy your break with your family and friends, you can have fun on exciting rides and slides. Pink Pearl is one the most popular water park in Jaipur and even has India’s first water Disco, though in recent times more water parks have come up in the Pink City which means more fun, you can spend your weekends with your family and friends at a water park and relax.

4. Hawa Mahal

OK! So this is one of my favourites from my childhood. Jaipur is known for its heritage all over the world. Thousands of people visit it around the year. Hawa Mahal is the spot you cannot afford to miss be you’re a tourist or a localite. Here’s why, Hawa Mahal’s architectural feature allows cool air from the Venturi effect to pass through, thus making the whole area more pleasant during the high temperatures in summer.

5. Jal Mahal

Talking about heritage with cool escapes, you cannot skip the list without Jal Mahal. Walking past the ‘Paal’ of Jal Mahal is how you want your day to end as it not only furnishes the cool breeze but also provides a picturesque sight.

6. Staying home and lazing around

Since its summer you get a chance to stick to your lazy bed/sofa and play games on your mobiles and laptops as your parents would be scared to send you outside due to the loo. And the best part is you can stay in your pyjamas the whole day, cause no leaving home.

7. Relish over ice cream/cold drinks

Who can say no to ice cream/cold drinks in summers? What are you even talking about, I survive on ice cream/cold drinks in summer.

Ice cream parlours in Jaipur serves many inviting flavours. Jal Mahal Ice Cream Parlor has some refreshing options on their menu that will make your taste buds go gaga with joy.

8. The perfect excuse to run through sprinklers in the garden

Remember when you were a kid and use to play with water balloons, relive those moments, let the child inside you jump out and run through the water sprinklers till you are drenched. It’s one of the best things about summers.

10. Social and Electronic media plays major role in both

 

 

11. Alcohol brands make merry in both

 

 

12. Corporates have a serious role to play in terms in finances

 

 

13. One would get routinely notified about them, whether voluntarily or involuntarily!

 

 

14. Both take over the newspapers, one takes the first half and the other, the latter half.

Reliving The Amazing Memories At Kanak Ghati, Jaipur.

Kanak Ghati is one place where we all, at one point of our lives has been to. In retrospect, Kanak Ghati was the no. 1 picnic spot for the school picnics as well as family picnics. The maintenance of the historical garden has been kept up to date by the government and the café in the park’s premises still serves good food. The feel of Kanak Ghati still remains the same but, the people are so caught up in their own lives’, they hardly get any time to revisit this beautiful garden.

IMG_9194.JPG

Kanak Ghati is also famously called Kanak Vrindavan, it is named so as it was constructed based on the Lord Krishna’s Vrindavan. The picturesque idols of Lord Krishna and the Gopis, surrounded by the beautiful flowers at Kanak Ghati brings alive the spirit of the playful God in the truest form.

IMG_9209.JPG

There are various scenes recreated around Kanak Ghati with idols of Lord Krishna. The construction of the garden dates back to more than 300 years when the idol of Lord Govind Dev Ji had to be shifted from Vrindavan. The temples in Kanak Ghati area were constructed to house the idol of Govind Dev Ji, but in 1716, the idol was shifted to the now called Govind Dev Ji Temple in City Palace area in Jaipur.

IMG_9178.JPG

The particular spot that Kanak Ghati is at, the valley below Nahargarh was specially chosen for its construction as it adds special grace to the majestic Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, and the Jal Mahal Palace. If you are looking to explore the heritage of Jaipur, there’s no better place than the trio of palaces, Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amer Palace.

IMG_9215.JPG

With very close proximity to the great palaces, Kanak Ghati is definitely a place to visit for a serene experience and the feel of Jaipur. The pools and fountains at the Ghati make sure the beauty of the Ghati remains extraordinary, and everyone in the family enjoys the getaway as much. As Jaipur is widely called, the Chotti Kashi, for the number of temples that it houses, Kanak Ghati adds another exciting layer of holiness and fun to the city of Jaipur.

IMG_9230.JPG

Kanak Ghati is a perfect full day escape from the hustle and bustle of daily lives we are so caught up in, the surrounding of Kanak Ghati make it the absolute serene garden in the city of Jaipur. The Ghati has a picturesque view of the great Aravalis and lies just below the valley of Nahargarh, there is certainly no other place with a view and location like this, in the entire world.
