The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own. Happiness multiplies when shared with others. When a person shares his happiness with others and tries to make others happy as well, their joy increases multifold. Christmas is considered a day of giving joy to others. Santa Claus is considered to be the bearer of gifts for the children who were good throughout the year. Santa Claus may come in any form and manner. In the Manthan center of Rithala and Mangolpuri, Santa came in form of Mr. Alok Baraya, Director of Delhi Pearl Academy and Mr. Jitender, HR Manager.
