“Whenever I travel by Bus or Train, I see a lot of young children begging for food or money. Their condition is so bad that even when I am having small snacks at roadside stalls, they come and beg for a part of the snacks. This pains me a lot. So I want to help them in my small way.” Said Sourav

“I do not want to hand over money to the children as providing them cash is not the right thing. I rather want to buy them useful things like study materials and clothes.” added the young musician.
