I'd just written about the gorgeous, frightening cold in Delhi.
If there's one thing you can do quickly to protect those who suffer winter rather than enjoy, it is this: donate some warm clothes.
Here's an appeal from Khoj.
'Dearest friends of Khoj,
It is that time of the year again and we need your help. Here is your chance to to ensure that Delhi stays warm during the coming winters!
Take out those sweaters/shawls/sweat shirts/shoes that you have been planning to wear since Christmas ten years ago and never actually did so. Add winter protection for Khoj to your winter shopping list. Share your winter warmth and we guarantee you will be contributing a smile to someone's face!
We look forward to all contributions, whether a single sweater/blanket or clothes by the dozen. We only request that they all be in wearable condition.
Send this message to your family, friends and colleagues at work. Each sweater counts!
Please drop all contributions to Khoj's office:
409 3rd Floor, above RAO Travels,
Munirka, New Delhi
