The world is full of communities, big and small. This pandemic has seen many areas where the Government has failed, local governing bodies have been unable, law enforcement could do only limited. Yet, at a time like this, communities have come forward and done the unthinkable. Community service was earlier was a little act of goodness, but the world is now seeing community service become the most significant way to fight this pandemic. 


Every community service and the people who have been behind it never go unnoticed. Syed Osman Azhar Maqsusi and his exemplary work for the community recently earned the Commonwealth Points of Light award. Syed Maqsusi's initiative for 'Hunger Has No Religion.' The social activist feeds nearly 1500 people under this initiative. As the name of the campaign says, the activist provides food to the needy irrespective of their faith.


 Maqsuisi expressed how happy he was to be recognized by the British Government. But, more than the award, he conveyed his overwhelming feeling of spotting the Indian tricolor right next to the project 'Hunger Has No Religion' on the website. The British Deputy  High Commissioner, a prominent figure and connected to social activists and philanthropists in the city, has helped Mr.Maqsusi get recognized for his reward for his exemplary work. 


Mr. Maqsusi's campaign had a very humble beginning when the latter first spotted a lady under the Dabeerpura flyover in 2011. On his interaction with the weak woman, he found out that she hadn't eaten for days. So Mr. Maqsusi decided that very day that he would start this campaign. The start of this campaign saw Mr. Maqsusi and his wife serve home-cooked meals to the needy under the Dabeerpura flyover every day. They further upscaled to doing the same at Gandhi Hospital. 


This campaign has been a pioneer for many other smaller movements by Mr. Maqsusi and has filled the stomachs of millions of needy people and have given them hope to live. The current campaign is now feeding lakhs of people and is functional in Odisha, Assam, Karnataka, and few other states.
