Bhavya Gandhi aka Tappu of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah celebrated his 14th birthday on June 20, 2011. He did something very special which his newly made friends will remember for years to come. He visited an NGO for mentally retarded children near Malad Station and partied with them. This NGO houses about 250 such special children. He also donated Rs 51,000 and gifted every child a water bottle.
Bhavya Gandhi said, “I was surprised and touched in many ways. They made home made chocolates for me and also baked me a cake. They downloaded all my pictures from the internet and made a collage with a happy birthday message on it with help from their teachers. I was moved to see one of them anchoring the evening considering they are different and special kids. The group of children was called “big wonders” but for me they are bigger than the Seven Wonders of the World. I am looking forward to taking the entire team of Taarak Mehta to the NGO sometime soon.”
Tappu is definitely learning good deeds from the show it seems.
