Of late we hear many folks saying that they’re doing welfare or social work. What exactly does this mean? What reasonably welfare work is needed and desirable? Is it not the duty of the government to require care of the wants of those citizens? If so, is there needing for a few individuals and organizations to enter this field? In every democracy, and particularly in an exceedingly socialistic democracy, there’s a good responsibility on the government to supply social facilities and make sure of the final welfare of its citizens. In our country, our government is additionally taking care of a variety of welfare activities. It provides education and treatment. The welfare of the downtrodden and also the handicapped is additionally taken care of. These activities can’t be termed welfare work because the government is doing these as a component of its welfare program. Therefore welfare work shall mean something else, which is undertaken either by a person or by a company. Service may be that which is rendered for a few payments. But welfare work is that which is completed voluntarily, without expecting any reward or payment or recognition. Any help rendered on these lines by a person or organization to the needy might be termed welfare work. for instance, Teresa had started her mission of service to require the care of orphan children. The Andhra Mahila sabha is rendering invaluable services to women. These can be termed as samples of social work. We have negative side effects also. Some interested and self-seeking gentleman and ladies, who are rich and who could afford to spend, start institutions of varied kinds within the name of work. That’s a move to induce social recognition and respect from the general public. In many such cases, they’re individual-based, they begin work for a purpose, and after their purpose is served they either close it up or start exploitation. There are reputed organizations, who do valuable service to society within the name of work. Service to mankind is equal to service god. Hence selfless service to humanity at large could also be termed as actual welfare work. A program called N.S.S. (National Social Service) is there in colleges and universities involving all young boys and girls. These people attend the village to assist the agricultural folk within the fields of education, construction of roads and tanks, and to show them hygienic methods. There are still many areas where individuals can do lots of welfare work by simply appealing to the minds of individuals. they’re (1) Prohibition (2) anti-dowry system (3) eradication of illiteracy, (4) Village sanitation, (5) rural upliftment (6) medical aid, etc. in villages. We find many foreigners undertaking social work programs within the fields of treatment, education, and welfare of the handicapped. We now need to decide on how long we’ve to rely on foreigners for solving our problems. It’s time that we learn to serve our brethren without reckoning on foreign funds or foreign personnel. We should always inspire our youth to dedicate themselves to the service of the state. Deliberately spread more love and humanity rather than negative talks. Be the person for someone who is smiling today because the world needed it the most and help the people with the things you can afford.
We, humans, are divided in race, religions, castes so and so, and yet we all take hands to unite together to the welfare of society in this great battle of covid-19 by showing humanity from the soft corner of billions of people’s heart.
