Yel­low box of hap­pi­ness

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - YAMNA BATOOL

Re­cently a ser­vice de­liv­ery firm has taken a fas­ci­nat­ing ini­tia­tive of launch­ing an in­no­va­tive idea to pro­vide food to less priv­i­leged peo­ple in Peshawar who barely af­ford three times meal a day. They have ar­ranged tidy jumbo yel­low box which has been tagged as the “Box of Hap­pi­ness” by them with a smi­ley face emoji. The box pro­vides needy and hun­gry peo­ple with free of cost food, es­pe­cially labourere who work hard all day in harsh sun.

The box is filled with small con­tain­ers of Biryani and Kab­uli Pu­lao at lunch and din­ner time. This unique ef­fort for the sake of hu­man­ity, to bring joy on the faces of poor peo­ple is un­doubt­edly a tremen­dous ini­tia­tive. If we can have a wall of kind­ness to dress peo­ple, we surely can have the hap­pi­ness boxes ev­ery­where in our coun­try to feed those who need it. There­fore, it should be ac­knowl­edged and ap­pre­ci­ated by the so­ci­ety and govern­ment be­cause it will not only help re­duce poverty but also would show­case a bet­ter im­age of Pak­istan. — Karachi
