World NGO Day 2022: Bal Shiv actor Siddharth Arora reveals why he started his NGO collaboration?Author: Yuvi February 27, 2022
New Delhi: It is said, ‘The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.’ Actor Siddharth Arora, who plays the role of Mahadev in &TV’s Bal Shiv, is a firm believer in this and is doing wonders for the underprivileged through social work.
On World NGO Day, which is observed every year on February 27 to recognize and honor people who contribute to the society, actor Siddharth Arora shares the work done by his NGO collaborations for the underprivileged.
Talking about his NGO, Siddharth Arora aka Mahadev from &TV’s Bal Shiva shared, “I hail from Varanasi, the land of Lord Shiva and spirituality has been the center of my world since childhood. I believe —that it is in giving that we receive. Giving is an act of spirituality, and if I can make even a little difference through my actions, I certainly will. So, starting this year It was extremely remarkable for me. Our NGO, my friends in collaboration and I started our first blanket drive on the first day of the year.”
He further added, “We colleagues drove on the roads to give blankets to roadside sleepers and those shivering in the cold weather of Varanasi. It was disheartening to see people trying to keep warm by just covering themselves with plastic sheets. It has made my heart happy to be able to provide them with blankets and help them live in the cold, even if in the smallest way possible.”
Explaining the reason behind starting an NGO, Siddharth says, “In the difficult times of Covid, everyone was trying to do their bit and help each other. However, the situation remained such that the relatives of the people could not be with them. Along with our friends, we started a collaboration to help those in need. As our first initiative, we have provided food to the families of Kovid patients in government hospitals. We got amazing support as many people reached out to us and offered their help. I am grateful to each of them. On this day, promising to continue serving the community, I also urge people to come forward and help others as much as they can. ,
Siddharth Arora’s show Bal Shiv airs every Monday to Friday at 8 pm on &TV.
