"The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving." The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service and every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows. These lines brought forth the true feeling when the students of The Modern School Faridabad on the occasion of the Centenary celebration decided to donate blankets to the needy be it old age homes, orphanages or people in the slums, The act of charity started on October 23rd '2019 when the children visited Tau Devi Lal old age home in NIT 2 and donated 80 blankets to the old people there bringing a smile on their faces. Next was an Orphanage owned by the Government in NIT 2 and 42 blankets were given to the poor children there. The act of charity did not stop as the students on October 24th '2019 gave 97 blankets to the maids, drivers, malis, security guards and cleaners all those working in The Modern School, Faridabad. The same day during the night they went out to find people lying huddled up on the roadside and on the pavements and gave them blankets. This act gave a sense of satisfaction to the students and they felt that they were carrying out the vision of their founder that all are equal and they should work for the betterment of the society where they live. The students realised what true religion was which meant bringing a smile on the face of mankind. This indeed was the best way to celebrate the Centenary Year and give it a start. They felt that every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven.
