Selfless four-year-old celebrates birthday with residents of Sarawak Cheshire Home
Sixty residents at the Sarawak Cheshire Home here were feted to a hi-tea on July 13 all because a boy who turned four said he did not want a party but wanted to ‘help people’ instead.
Seshadhari Kumah Pillay’s fourth birthday was celebrated with a cake-cutting, food and handing out of ‘ang pau’ to the residents by Seshadhari himself, the youngest son of Siva Kumar G, the group managing director of APR New Media and Asia Public Relations which has a base here in Kuching.
The family also made a donation to the Sarawak Cheshire Home headed by the matron Sister Regina.
The food was prepared by members of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) Kuching which went one step further to prepare a vegetarian cake.
“We opted out of having the normal party and feasting, deciding to do a bit of welfare in our own private way,” said Siva.
Siva, who is the author of the authorised biography ‘Taib – The Visionary’ about Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, is also the patron of the Malaysia Hindu Sangham – Sarawak State Council.
This is the first time Siva and his family celebrated Seshadhari’s birthday outside of Kuala Lumpur where they come from.
