As the year 2021 is about to end, let’s have a look back at some random acts of kindness that won our hearts in the year 2021.

Papiya Kar

wedding acts of kindness

Indian weddings are especially grand including decorations, rituals and even food. This leads to a lot of wastage which is quite inappropriate. However, Papiya Kar, a woman from West Bengal came up with an amazing idea to not let any food go waste as she distributed all the leftover food to the needy.

Papiya was dressed beautifully in an Indian attire and was serving food to children, rickshaw drivers and others. She filled metal containers and distributed all this food leftover from her brother’s wedding reception. This is a great way to ensure that nothing goes to waste and also, to ensure that nobody goes to sleep without food.
