When you throw a stone into a pond, you’ll see a splash and hear a specific sound generated by the touch of stone with the water. You will notice circles rippling out from the point where stone hit the water. The stone touched the water only once however the number of waves was more than that. Did you also noticed that you did one simple act of throwing a stone but it resulted in several waves generation in all directions travelling to a large distance? This is what we call Ripple Effect.
 
If you closely observe your day to day life, you will notice that most of your acts are generating ripples in the society since a lot of people are getting affected either positively or negatively. If you are doing a positive act, the ripple effect is going to be positive. For example, if you help your friend or colleague, there is a most likely chance that he will help you and others when he finds you or others in any crisis. Hence I believe that positive acts result in positive ripples and negative effects generate negative ripples. Since this article is going to be read by all kind of intellectuals so I will summarize some basic example of positive and negative ripples.
 
1- When you share some inspiring article/video/story with your friends through email, Facebook, Google Plus, blog, website or any other online media, it will have a positive impact on hundreds of lives; Just to elaborate, if you have sent this article by email to 100 friends and only 20 of those share the same information with their colleagues/friends then this article will reach and inspire another 20*100 = 2000 people. This won’t stop here since these 2000 people are going to share that with another thousands of people so the article consequently touches millions!
2- When you work on some humanity service project (for example, giving some money for charity on monthly basis, opening an orphan house, installing water tanks in areas where water is not available to drink, visiting hospitals to help poor people etc) you are generating an unstoppable ripple effect. Hundreds of people will get inspired by you and start doing the same (more or less) acts.
 
3- When you want to show your driving ‘skills’ and ‘thrills’ by bad or speedy driving while your friends or family members are with you, you are encouraging them to do the same when they are given a chance. These friends will probably do the same and encourage more people for this bad act. Down the road in 6 month you might become the root cause of rash driving for 100+ people or more!
 
This paragraph is for Muslims only: If we closely think, the positive ripples can become a source of Sadqa Jaria which is extremely required after your death. If you have done something similar to Point-1 and Point-2, these deeds will keep sending you the Hasanat (currency of Aakhirah) in your after-death-bank-account. Always remember that dollars, pounds or euros wont help you on the day of Judgment, the thing which will help you is your acts of kindness and their usage by the society. If you inspire and convince more and more people for any good deed (by your words or by doing the task actually) you are basically ensuring your share in the Hasanat which they is going to do (while their share will not be impacted). 
 
Conclusion: Positive Acts of kindness can bring magical results on earth. Everyone need to understand the concept that all of his/her acts are generating ripples in the society which are either improving or polluting the society.
 
Do you audit yourself on how much pollution or prosperity you are contributing to the society?

We have in our country a long but uneven tradition of philanthropy’ . Thus
lamented Sonia Gandhi at the function in Delhi to give the Indira Gandhi
Prize to the American philanthropist Bill Gates. That was on July 25. Two
days later, the Wall Street Journal printed, unusually, her whole speech. On
July 29, Paul Beckett, a WSJ columnist, taking his cue from Sonia, mocked
Indian businessmen for not being even remotely close to matching Gates. He
pontificated: “India’s rich, open your wallets”.

Beckett used corporate India to dent the image of India itself, courtesy
Sonia. Had she not spoken the way she did, he would not have written the way
he did. What Sonia did not know – therefore, Beckett, who borrowed from her,
could not – is what differentiates India from the US. American corporates,
which almost exhaust America, are co-extensive with it; they account for
over 80 per cent of its GDP. Bill Clinton had nicknamed the US ‘America
Inc’, namely, the US as the aggregate of its corporates.

US corporate endowments aggregated are highly visible, like their brands.
This is to emphasise their nature; not undermine their worth. The US market
cap is some 40 times the Indian. Corporate India is insignificant in
contrast. Some 400 top private Indian companies account for under six per
cent of India’s GDP. This includes all Sensex members.

Sonia is understandably unfamiliar with the practices of traditional India.
Indian charity, widely practised at the lowest unit levels down to every
home, is socio-religious, not secular, in construct. Traditional India has
high charitable propensities and deep philanthropic impulses. Indian
religions do not convert others; their charity is therefore less known. Here
are some examples of charity where the religious power is manifest.

Look at the charity run by Bhagwan Sathya Sai of Puttaparthi. His work for
the poor is unmatched; yet equally unknown. Here are just two illustrations
of his work. Anantapur district in Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh was
known for water scarcity and water salinity and high fluoride levels in
drinking water. Moved by the suffering of the poor, Sai Baba decided to do
what the government could not for 50 long years; provide potable drinking
water to the whole of Anantapur – yes, for the whole district.

He declared in November 1995, “Today it is ‘Raatlaseema’ (rocky region); it
must be transformed into ‘Ratnala Seema’ (land that glitters like diamond)”.
It took just 18 months. The work involved laying some 2,000 kilometres – yes
2,000 km – of water pipeline; building 43 sumps of 1.5 lakh to 25 lakh
litres capacity; constructing 18 balancing reservoirs of three to 10 lakh
litres capacity – where? – on top of hillocks; erecting 270 overhead
reservoirs holding 40,000 to three lakh litres; installing 1,500-plus
concrete pre-cast cisterns of 2,500 litres capacity, each attached with four
taps for people to draw water.

This is how the 9th Planning Commission document describes the initiative.
The Sathya Sai charity ‘has set an unparalleled initiative of implementing
on their own, without any state budgetary support, a massive water supply
project with an expenditure of Rs 3,000 million to benefit 731 scarcity and
fluoride/salinity affected villages and a few towns in Anantapur district in
18 months’. Baba’s trusts repeated this feat in fluoride-affected Medak and
Mehboobnagar districts. They provided water to some 4.5 lakh poor in 179
villages in Medak, and to some 3.5 lakh poor in 141 villages in the next.
The drinking water projects in these districts covered more than 1,000
villages with some 20 lakh people.

Then, he saw the poor in Chennai struggling for water. He declared on
January 19, 2002, “Today I have made a new resolve. Madras is suffering from
acute shortage of drinking water. The rich can buy water. What will the poor
do? I have decided to work towards bringing drinking water to Madras, no
matter how difficult and how costly the task”. His central trust took up the
construction of a 63-km stretch of the 150 km canal in the Telugu Ganga
scheme, left incomplete for want of funds, thus denying water to Chennai.
Thanks to Baba, Krishna water reached Chennai, irrigating some three lakh
hectares of agricultural land on the way. These projects cost over Rs 600
crore.

The Sathya Sai trusts in Puttaparthi and Bengaluru run world-class
speciality hospitals. They have performed some 24,000 cardiac surgeries,
34,000 cardiac cathertisations, 7,000 neuro surgeries, 40,000 eye surgeries,
and 600 orthopaedic surgeries and treated millions more – all free. What is
absent in these two hospitals is a billing department. The bill for these
services might exceed Rs 1,000 crore. Baba’s trusts also run free
educational institutions, cultural centres and music colleges. Secular India
generously released a stamp to note the charity in Anantapur. Compare it
with the Indira Gandhi award to Gates and the encomiums at the cost of
India.

Take another religious charity, the Ramakrishna Mission. It runs 197
hospitals and its health-related work serves 85 lakh people annually,
including 25 lakh in rural areas; 1,186 educational institutions serve 3.4
lakh students including 1.24 lakh in rural areas.

Take the Swaminarayan movement. Its 14 hospitals serve over six lakh
patients annually; it runs 10 schools, eight colleges, 14 hostels; it has
built 55 schools in disaster-hit areas; it aids 20 schools financially;
gives 5000 scholarships annually. In Punjab, not a single man, woman or
child would have gone hungry in the last three centuries, thanks to the
langar in Gurudwaras feeding millions every day. Jains run huge charities
all over the country. So do religious Muslims and Christians. Even the
freedom movement was sustained by philanthropy. Lala Lajpat Rai gave all his
properties to the movement; Chittaranjan Das and many others went bankrupt
funding the movement. They never expected any Indira Gandhi Award. That is
real philanthropy.

Traditional Indian business communities allocate a fixed share of their
turnover for charity. The mahamai, an informal charity tax among the Nadars
in Tamil Nadu has funded hundreds of the community’s educational
institutions. The Nagarathars in Tamil Nadu too, through their mahamai, run
huge charities. The Marwaris and others do so through the dharmada. Even
today this informal system prevails in non-corporate business in India. So
charity is by the community as a whole, not by individuals. But corporate
India is unfortunately neither Indian nor American.

This is India, about which Sonia is singularly ignorant even after 40 years
of domicile. When she said India has an uneven tradition of philanthropy it
only exposed her ignorance, besides exporting it to the WSJ. The result? The
WSJ is preaching to Indians about charity; the Indian media reports this
nonsense without challenging it.
