Toy Bank

In 1987, during my ‘Anti-Lottery’ campaign I met people living in extreme poverty. The ones I clearly remember, from these slums, are the children who suffered neglect and were denied every basic human right. What was heartening was the fact that these children were so happy and content, unaware of the downtrodden surroundings they were living in. This left an indelible mark on my mind and I was determined to do something for them. A thought rose, what could offer joy to a child than a toy to play? And thus the Toy Bank came into existence; an organization offering toys to the needy children and thus providing them an opportunity to live a better childhood. 
 
The Toy Bank as the name suggests houses toys, toys which are old and discarded. The toy donors could call the volunteers for home-pick at 011-2450-5152 or leave them at one of the many collection centers across Delhi. These toys were then refurbished and stored in the Adarshila Library, in Pitampura. Initially every child was issued one toy at a time, which they could exchange it for another when they were done playing with it. The reason was to inculcate in these kids a sense of responsibility. This initiative saw tremendous success and the idea caught on.
 
I approached several public schools and encouraged them to donate toys to the toy bank. We have collected over 3 lakh toys from over 25 centers in Delhi so far. These toys are distributed to the children in JJ Colonies, MCD schools, orphanages and at shelters for street kids. Collection drives are organized on special occasions like children’s day and the birth anniversaries of renowned public figures.

My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekanada. I sincerely believe that Delhi has enough number of brave, bold men and women who can make it not only one of the best cities.

Power is the basis of human lives and is used in almost everything we have. Hence it's vital in the interest of social development and welfare that power reaches to common citizens

Healthcare The Delhi government being the major health service provider is responsible for the healthcare services in Delhi but due to lack of planning and vision of Delhi government

Water, though being one of the most precious resources on the earth, is availabile in limited amount. Hence it's necessary that due management of the water resources is taken for the existence of life.

Delhi Villages Delhi has 369 villages which, though called as Urban Villages but, continue to suffer from developmental inequalities. The basic infrastructure is in such a sorrow state that some villages

Youth Development Youth is the backbone of our country's progress and we all need to work towards their overall development. Apart from providing training & employment in traditional careers I have always encouraged active youth participation in politics.

Law and order is the most important aspect of any government as it provides its people the critical protection against non-social elements. Delhi, being the capital of India, must stand as a role model for security and safety of its citizens.

Housing To own a home, irrespective of the size, is a dream cherished by many. I understand this sentiment and that is why I championed the cause to help protect the applicants who were promised homes and felt cheated by the Delhi government.

Power is one of the basic amenities of life happens to be a matter of great concern for the citizens of Delhi. Faulty meters, power shortage and inflated power bills are the most common grievances faced by every other citizen.

Water is vital for the existence of life but we need to realize that like all the other resources it is not unlimited and, going by the experts' opinion, the next war could be fought because of it.

Lottery may look like a deceivingly simple subject but then looking back on our campaign we realize that we tackled an extremely complicated issue. The subject remained unresolved in spite of being under consideration by the Govt. of India for over 30 years.

Chandni Chowk I have a keen interest in exploring and learning about culture, traditions and Heritage. Chandni Chowk, my former parliamentary constituency, is a perfect example of the multicultural and multi-religious India.
