It all began when Vidyakar carried an eleven month old baby which was found abandoned in a cinema hall in Chennai, India. The baby needed care and he felt a sudden urge in himself to take care of the baby.
From that day onwards he started his journey to help orphans and destitute."Helping hands" or "Udavum Karangal" was born. Udavum Karangal today has become a haven for 2000 socially under-privileged people. ( http://www.udavumkarangal.org/
I end this post with his words..""It is not the way I intended to live my life. It is a dangerous, tough, thankless job... but someone's got to do it. It'd be nice if society did not need people like me but while it does... I will be right there." "
The proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to "Udavum Karangal"
