    While in absolute numbers India leads, the country still ranks low at 106th (out of 145) on the 2015 global index, thanks to the size of its population. China ranks at 144.

    Bipin Mohanty, 47, was only refreshing his roots. Based in Bhubaneswar, the communications consultant grew up in Kankadapal, a village in Odisha. A Daan Utsav volunteer since 2009, last year he took the idea of volunteering to rural areas.

    “I wasn’t too hopeful. But I still wanted to try,” he says. Badamba village was his first stop.

    The response overwhelmed him. About 400 people from 15 villages joined in organising an event around Daan Utsav, a festival of philanthropy. Keeping the old, needy and the underprivileged in mind, volunteers pooled in to provide free food to 4,000 people and distributed items like blankets and torches.

    A shoe company owner gave away 3,000 pairs. And businessmen in the tent business set up shelter for free. Encouraged, this year Daan Utsav (October 2-8) is getting bigger and spreading wider.

    About 20,000 people in a cluster of 100 villages around Daspalla block in Odisha’s Nayagarh district have come together to celebrate Daan Utsav on October 3.

    Volunteers have collected 20 trucks of food grains and blankets. Over 7,000 women from selfhelp groups (SHGs) will help prepare food and feed the needy. They have raised Rs 7 lakh to donate a van that can carry dead bodies, a felt need in the area. “I am so pleasantly surprised. The response has been overwhelming and totally unexpected,” says Mohanty.

    What started as a small experiment on October 2 in 2009 has now turned into a movement. Daan Utsav — earlier called the Joy of Giving Week or India Giving Week — is celebrated in the week of Gandhi Jayanti every year.

    People from all walks of life — schools and colleges, government and private sector, NGOs and individuals — engage in various acts of giving their money, skills and time.

    This year, over 60 lakh people across 200 cities and villages are expected to participate. Over 1,000 companies and as many NGOs will join hands to organise over 1,100 events across India.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about it during his Mann Ki Baat speech on September 25, urging people to celebrate the festival. It has found support from celebrities, businessmen and bankers like Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Kumar Mangalam Birla, Adi Godrej and KV Kamath.

    “Daan Utsav has now gained a momentum of its own, a way democratising philanthropy in India,” says Venkat Krishnan, volunteer, Daan Utsav. Krishnan was among the who helped give Daan Utsav a push and shape in its early days. Daan Utsav in India is similar to the Giving Tuesday (which comes after Thanksgiving) celebrated globally, especially in the US.

    Created as a response to crass consumerism and commercialisation in the wake of Thanksgiving, it started in 2012 in New York with the United Nations Foundation and New York’s 92nd Street Y creating a National Day of Giving. Companies like Mashable, Skype and Cisco were among the founding partners. The trend has caught on.

    The Joy of Giving

    Here’s how India is celebrating Daan Utsav this year. In Mumbai, MAD Foundation and Mumbai First have launched a railway beautification initiative called Hamara Station Hamari Shaan where 36 suburban railway stations will be given a makeover with the help of some 20 corporates and 25,000 volunteers.

    Shishir Joshi of Mumbai First, an initiative seeking to improve the city’s quality of life, says while groups like Godrej and Mahindra are chipping in, crowdfunding platforms like Ketto too are helping raise funds.

    Advertising veteran Suman Srivastava, who till recently was with FCB Ulka, is helping organise a hackathon where seasoned advertising professionals like Agnello Dias (cofounder of Taproot) and Bobby Pawar, MD, Publicis Worldwide, will judge pro bono work done by advertising professionals to help 12 NGOs shape their communication and advertising strategies.

    Nandini Dias, CEO of Lodestar UM, is anchoring a campaign to give four low-income schools in Mumbai a makeover and providing things that the school or the children may need from libraries to tables and benches.

    Indian School of Business’s (ISB) Shadow a CEO programme — launched in 2009 Daan Utsav where students bid to spend a day with a CEO in an auction and the CEO chips in an equal amount which goes to a charity — is only getting bigger.

    This year, close to 30 CEOs will participate in it with the likes of Kumar Mangalam Birla, Facebook MD Umang Bedi and Max Group founder Analjit Singh. Well, if this sounds like a festival driven by corporate zeal, it could not be further from the truth.
