Suggested For You
Expressing Gratitude to strangers
The volunteers approach random people on streets like policemen, rickshaw pullers, drivers, cleaners, ambulance drivers, etc. and thank them for their valuable contribution. They give flowers and handmade greeting cards as a token of gratitude, which also contains a helpline number on which one can contact for any future help and guidance.
Mission to break social hierarchies
Rab Shukran aims to break social hierarchies which have been created between rich and poor or literate and illiterate to make the society more inclusive. It believes that the crimes like road rage or public scuffles in our society is the result of increase in the everyday stress and frustration amongst the people. This stress impacts mental health and induces hatred in our society. But this can be tackled by being empathetic and mutual empowerment.
While talking to Azad Dilli, Abhinav Malhotra spoke about the collaboration of various art forms like music, dance, drama, etc. which the organisation uses to spread happiness.
We are bringing a revolution in the way we operate our NGO by mixing different art forms like music, dance & drama in which people happily take interest. We believe that anyone can contribute to our movement by doing small things like passing a smile to strangers and appreciating the work of those who are being ignored.Abhinav Malhotra, Founder Rab Shukran
