Anandalok Family

For those who live in Anandalok, it is no longer a mere residence, it is an enlarged family.  The care givers, under the guidance and leadership of the House Mother, along with the boarders are all a big happy family of nearly 50 members.  From morning till sleeping time in the night all of them are doing everything together.  Here everyone is caring for the other. everyone is lending a helping hand to the other.  In this family the most irrelevant matter is probably the IQ.  In any society generally persons with a little low or even moderate IQ are looked down upon, are ridiculed.  In ANANDALOK no one is bothered about IQ. 

Once a month Guardians Day programme is held.  Guardians of every boarder comes to meet their Ward.  On this day not only the boarders family comes together but the atmosphere is like a huge family get together.  To watch the shear joy on the faces of the guardians and also the boarders as well as the full time care givers is pure heavenly 

Winter brings additional joy to one and all in ANANDALOK.   The whole family goes out for a picnic to a suitable place, where the boarders, play, dance, sing, helps in cooking and have enormous enjoyment.   Then the preparation for the 3 hour long Cultural Programme for Foundation day celebration takes place for 2 to 3 months.   The foundation day is celebrated on the First Sunday of January every year.   The cultural programme held on this day is divinely performed by the boarders –  they actually become celebrities

Over the years some boarders, after staying in ANANDALOK for a few years and  on sufficiently improving had gone back home and can live on own steam. They are well now. They come visiting sometimes. The joy is unbounded on them and on friends he left behind. 

Running a normal home of 4/5/6 members will have its problems and would be facing many hurdles – day to day as well as long term.  Same at ANANDALOK,  the problems, hurdles are there, but irrespective of whatever hurdle the peaceful atmosphere of ANANDALOK is never disturbed.  The smile on everyone’s face is always intact.

When a world is so different than one’s own, one can only wonder of the travails it must brave. For Anandalok, the most spectacular success is the happiness that the staff and the administration tirelessly try to bring to those they look after.
