A special Evening

Last evening was a special one.

Attended a dinner organised by Alpha Palliative Care. The presentation made me face some realities about people with life-limiting diseases and those who are confined to bed for various reasons. About people who are so dependent for their mobility that they can’t even kill themselves without external help… People who wait for the relief of death… 

What could be more humane than to give them a life of dignity? My salutes to Mr K.M. Nooruddin who is the driving force behind the venture, and every single person who is invovled in it. It is humbling to know that there are such people in the world that we are a part of.

Dr Mallika Sarabhai’s dance performance was the highlight of the evening. It was an amazing experience to watch her dance transcend art to become a strong voice that carries vital messages to the world. She contributed half her fee from the performance to the cause, and agreed to become the brand ambassedor for palliative care. A really amazing woman!

Thank you, Ramesh T Variam and Nirupama Ramesh for inviting us – it has been a life-changing experience for me.
