The rural folk of an island of river Krishna, Diviseema, have drawn inspiration from the Iranian initiative ‘Wall of Kindness’, hanging a range of clothes, shoes, bags and many more useful things to a wall at the weekly shandy here.

* * * Diviseema is a big island and is home for several smaller ones. The ‘Wall of Kindness’ was thrown open on Sunday here for the needy, following a grassroots work by local aqua farmer T. Raghu Sekhar to try this initiative in Nagayalanka in Krishna district.

* * * Nearly 200 pairs of clothes, at least 50 traditional saris, toys and shoes were attached to the wall hangers. “It’s an unexpected humble gesture from our rural folk. The people living in the Krishna river islands — Edurumondi, Eelachetladibba, Nachukunta and others — will be the prime beneficiaries,” Mr. Raghu Sekhar told The Hindu.
It was an incredible response from all walks of life who placed several things at the wall: vintage pottery meant for storing drinking water and food grains, utensils and toys. The wall became empty within an hour as needy people collected whatever they required, leaving the donors with a sense of happiness.
On every Sunday, people from the 22 panchayats in Nagayalanka mandal including the islands throng here for the weekly shandy by walk and boat. “The local panchayat authorities and revenue officials on Sunday proposed to run the ‘Wall of Kindness’ 24x7 from next week. We are expecting more response from other villages too,” said S. Krishna Prasad and G. Sudheer, active volunteers of the initiative.
“I have noticed that the dignity of the needy is being respected through this model,” says Mr. Sekhar.
