Shabeel in summers

Delhi is very hot during these months. People put up shabeels (free food and drinks for poor people). 
Few years back, me and my husband decided that instead of only one day of shabeel, we should do it every day throughout the summers. So, this is put up outside the house for all the passers by every day. It is a drum full of milk, ice, water and Rooh af za. Every day, this drum is prepared and everyone who is passing by, stops and relishes it. Few children also come running to have it.

Do feed water to birds. Keep bowls of water for birds. 
Indian culture says, that giving water to thirsty ones is a very good deed and karma. Keep pots of water outside your house. Distribute food, water, biscuits, blankets to needy people.
