"We don't have to be great to start we have to start to be great",... A step into Bhumi, was a step into a constructive change in me. It is just 30 months from the time, I joined Bhumi, but, today, when I turn back, I could just Mark my life as Before Bhumi and After Bhumi... :) A lot of experiences, a lot of friends, a lot of unforgettable moments...!... A positive catalyst that brought in a constructive change in me, through many angels in here, through their experiences and much more.. :) ... I am proud to say, I Change Today, I Change Tomorrow, through Bhumi... :)

We don't have to be great to start, We have to start to be great...!!!... One of the best things I ever did in my life was that, that day, August 18th, I visited Nakshatra '12 (an inter home festival conducted by Bhumi) as a visitor. And then, there my eyes sent a fastest message to my brain seeing an ample number of youngsters fully involved in bringing smiles to the faces of those children. And from there, my brain forwarded the message to my heart and on that same day, as soon as I reached home, Googled for BHUMI registering on it and received a SMS saying there was a n orientation, and that day, NOVEMBER 12th 2012, was change over and turning point...!!!... That day, my heart was just fulfilled with joy of happiness !!!.... And starting up in the JOY TO THE WORLD project, I was really lucky to see and experience a lot of smiles and happiness of many kids of God. This is the best thing which I think, every human should experience...!!!... Then there I chose LAKSHYA(dream/goal) a project that, leads the dreams and shows the paths of life to a kid.... Starting from then, I m in Lakshya still experiencing a lot of things...!!!... :)

The best thing about bhumi is that, the transparency and it is one place which benefits the whole society, both the kids and the volunteers..!!!... I have gained a lot...!!!... Can also divide my life as Life Before Bhumi and Life After Bhumi...!!!!.... CHANGE TODAY, CHANGE TOMORROW.... An apt motto...!!!... :)

A cause is all that matters for all the works you do. I found how it should look like after volunteering with bhumi. A satisfaction, impact, understanding,meaning, sustainability, efficiency i have understood how to add it in everything i do. Most of all doing everything with a smile, no actually a laugh... laughters... a roaring fun. Its going to be 2 years now but it has made me learn more than the decade i spent in classrooms.

Bhumi this word these days means a lot to me. This is a place i lookout to reach out to the society; the society that gave me so much so far. I have realized that my potential is exploited best here via volunteering which has internally changed a lot of me. Which i get to know from people reviewing me. I feel just as if i found a way to reach my inner sanctum and satisfy my zests hidden so far.

Bhumi, the best thing that happened to me. I had always wanted to help the underprivileged children but was clueless about "how". Bhumi provides us with a great opportunity to connect with kids and help them as well as ourselves while volunteering. My journey in bhumi, till now (2 years) has been nothing but fulfilling. It also helps us get connected to like minded people, providing room for discussion , innovation and improvement for the causes we work for. Happy volunteering :D

Bhumi is one of the best things that happened in my life. The best stage I got to lend a helping hand to the under-privileged. Most of the children undergoing this programme turn out succssfull. It helped me realize my own worth and in many cases, it made me grow as a person. The amount of pleasure I gain during each minute when i do some bhumi task is priceless. Thaks to Bhumi for helping me to give the kids the best ever possible gift, the of education. I am thankful to bhumi for whatever it has done to the society as well as myself.

It's unfortunate that I can give only 5 stars to Bhumi, how I would love to give so many more! I have been associated with Bhumi since 2008 - actively until 2012 and not so actively now and forever. The association has given me more than I could have imagined - freedom to ideate, support to implement and motivation to do more.

The time I spent with the organization has changed me in ways which have helped me excel personally and professionally. I gained some BFsF (Best Friends Forever) and amazing memories which I will cherish always.

This is the kind of organization which makes volunteering sound cool and believe me, for 2 hours you spend every weekend you will get so much selfless love from the kids and you will learn things about yourself which you never knew existed. So whenever you want to give back to the society, don't look too far; Bhumi is there everywhere now. ;)
Happy Volunteering!
