This year on Diwali many NGOs and other organizations came out with various schemes to make this Diwali a joyful event for underprivileged children and people. One such example was presented by presented by Maheshwar Public School of Kota, Rajasthan, who requested their students to show compassion and love for the poor children and contribute a gift for them. The school witnessed a huge turnover when students whole heartedly contributed towards the cause. On eve of Diwali celebration, children from the under privileged area were welcomed, given token of love, and everyone together celebrated this festival of light.
