Winter Chill

By Mridula Dwivedi January 7, 2013 13 Comments

Delhi feels like Palampur right now! I remember how cold it was at Palampur in Himachal Pradesh. If you take out the view, NCR feels like it right now!

And there are so many people without warm clothes. What do you think of the various drives for collecting warm clothes? Or do you prefer to give directly to the people around you?

  1. The drive to collect is a good idea provided that the clothes are distributed and not sold in the black market. But I would be reluctant to be doing it, I prefer to give it directly to the needy.

  2. I just heard it from my Delhi friends how cold it is there. There could be a charity collection from every household that could give warm fleece, blankets, sweaters and distribute it to people who don’t have it.

    1. I know how terrible this can be. I remember once that i had to travel from Madurai to Bangalore in a winter night train without a jacket, and the experience was painful, and to think of people living in temperatures touching freezing point, is nothing short of a nightmare.
