Shivamogga: A lot of people are doing their bit to feed those who are battling hunger during the Corona crisis and the lockdown.
Several episodes that have unfurled in the country have also given communal colour to the pandemic, but the service that is being done in Shivamogga by a few like-minded people and organisations stands out because here, the Hindu and Muslim brethren have come together to work for a single cause- to save humanity.
Realising that hunger knows no religion and that it strikes everyone equally, an organisation named 'Namma Halli Bettamallappa' decided to satisfy the hunger of those who are engaged in battling Corona.
Be it an ambulance driver or a goods vehicle driver, a migrant worker or a cop, a patient's family member or a frontline medical worker, the organisation has decided to feed everyone without taking into consideration their class, caste or religious differences.
What followed is a beautiful example of service to mankind.
Every afternoon, a saffron-clad seer and a Muslim cleric are seen perched under the shade of a tree as trucks ferry food. They join hands keeping aside all differences and serve humanity as one.
Moolegadde seer gave the guidelines and with the wholehearted support from Sri Vyasa Maharshi Gurukula and Sara Kendra, Bettamallappa Nadavara Sangh and Bettamallappa Masjid Chief, hundreds of people are being served food every day.
The members of Namma Halli Bettamallpa say that the work of feeding the hungry has been going on over the past several days. Though there is uncertainty over how long they can sustain the programme, they are happy that they can make a difference in the lives of the people in a small yet significant way.
