Weeps from Manoj, “WEEPING STRINGS”
World without Hunger? Can we achieve this? In the world, 1 in 8 people experiences hunger, go to bed hungry. Don’t they need freedom from Hunger? Will this continue to be a dream?
Manoj George, always loves to drive. One pleasant Saturday morning, admiring the natural beauty, felt very nostalgic, started his journey to Kerala. On the way, in a village, he stopped the car for refreshment, as usual for a tea break, but his eyes were stuck on a blurred view, which he could never forget.
An unattended boy in front of a hut, is eating something from mud, he obviously looked starving for days, was pale, not able stand also. It was heart-breaking for Manoj and Manoj rushed to the nearby shop, bought food for him, sat next to him, till he finished. Whenever Manoj recollects, his eyes are filled with tears, as his heart still feels the smile of the boy.
Sometimes, we come across specific incidents, which change our perspective. This incident was a turning point for Manoj, gave courage to think differently. He took a decision to support, fight against hunger either through donation or by conveying the message during his live band (“ManojGeorge4Strings”) performances to the world and change the lives thru his music.
Manoj decided to spread the message about “Zero Hunger” – pledges to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, and is the priority of the World Food Programme.
