Angels of Love - Parvathi Shri

During this accursed days of the pandemic few individuals stand head and shoulders above the rest, Parvathi Shri is one among them, she is known for her active participation in Wikipedia contribution, an excellent teacher and a need of the hour social activist.

Parvathi Shri's Contribution to Wiki

Parvathi Shri started her service to the needy during this lockdown on 13/04/2029, she began her service from her own funds and started to feed 50 hungry souls, later her friends joined hands with her and the number of beneficiaries grown to 200. 

Saffiullah, one of her donors emptied his account and transferred until his last penny! I have never known him in person, but people like him make the unbelievable happen. May his lord bring him prosperity and peace. 

She had provided rice bags to all her 300 hundred of her students, and several cleaning staff with the help of Pugazhenthi Sivaji, from North California,  Dhananjayan Krishnan, SenthilKumar Natesan,  Parthipan Krishnasamy, Pandiyan Appavu and Sathyaseelan Chinnalagu.

She started providing dinner from 01/05/2020 to 04/05/2020  for 100 people with the assistance from  Vivekanathan, (Salem, Kanthampatti) an anonymous assistant from Singapore, T.S.Gowthaman, Chennai, Balasubramaniyan, Selam. 

So far she had spent 2,33,688(Two lakh and thirty-three thousands and six hundred and eighty-eight)   rupees towards the needy! This amount includes her own funds too.  Kindhearted people like Kumar Govidaraj, Raji Babu both from Salem, assisted her in this endeavor. Practically speaking she is assisted by several of her friends, a long list that includes writers, poets, and social activists. 

People like her give a reason to release a sigh of relief, take fresh breath  and endure the tyranny of the BJP government. Activists like her give us hope to look forward and look for the long-awaited dawn to come. 

For this, we should thank Parvathi Shri.
