Jeans for the elderly

Comment: Recently when APSCCON discussed collecting donations and
materials to help to flood victims, everyone felt that giving money to
CMF would be useless as nothing much would reach the needy persons.
Here is an instance of callousness in distributing clothes.

HAVINAL: While the relief materials is yet to reach majority of the
villages, even in the places where the relief has reached, the
authorities have made the gesture a mockery.

In the case of relief materials consisting of the clothes distributed
to the flood victims, elderly women were distributed the fancy dress
materials including churidars and the elderly men have been given
Jeans and T-shirts.

Ambavva, an elderly woman, said: "I have not worn a churidar in my
life and I don't know what to do with this." Hanumanthappa(70)
exhibiting the worn out jeans given to him said: "This pant will be
useful to my grandson".
