This video made by Bhumi and her friends blew me away today morning. It is about the 23 random acts of kindness they did to celebrate their friend Urja's 23rd birthday! I was filled with gleeful joy seeing youth considering kindness as cool.

That just absolutely made my day. I'm going to use this in a talk I'm giving tonight to a whole lot of parents ... so let those bright lights know that their ripples are spreading across the ocean!
Lovely to witness the purity of intention. 10 and 22 were my favorites and because we are doing this for our children as well, how do we step up of kindness to Mother Earth? How do we expand our awareness to be kind to both humans and the Earth? You see, we are one and the same ;-) It troubles me to see the rampant corporations in the "land" of Mahatma Gandhi, and any where really. What would be his nonviolent response after seeing this video? Don't know, but perhaps some reminder along the lines of: our means are our ends. You might want to consider how to gently stretch this awareness beloved Pepe. One heart at a time. It occurs to me that that's one thing we could do in the upcoming Super Soul Saturday Youth Retreat ;-)
This is so inspiring and as you say more so because it portrays kindness in such a cool way :) I'm going to use this video at our orientation day for the programme where we take young people from the UK to India . Carrying out random acts of kindness can be somewhat challenging initially for 15-17 year olds but this remarkable video certainly can help to break down inhibitions . Thank you for sharing. :)
So so so beautiful to see their kindness in action, what a special gift for their friend, one she'll never forget and one they won't forget either :). Number ten was one of my favs, what a gift for those kids! The energy and enthusiasm behind their intentions comes to life in this video, it's infectious! Thanks for sharing Sheetal, brought big big big smiles :)
Bhumi and gang, this was SO beautiful and touching!! Number 10, 22 and 23 were my favourites. Thanks for sharing, Sheetal; and happy birthday Urja! It's inspiring to see this group of noble friends, and their laughter and energy is infectious :)
