A famous dictum “Charity begins at home” as come true as an enormous response received by Rice Bucket Challenge, truly inspired by Ice Bucket Challenge publicised by global charity chain to spread awareness about the disease ALS.

Manju Latha Kalanidhi, a Hyderabadi, has come up with a natty way to lend a hand to the people in need with the Rice Bucket Challenge. In this challenge, all that a person needs to do is to cook or buy a bucket of rice and feed someone who needs it. It's very simple. Just like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, one should use the hashtag - #RiceBucketChallenge and ask their friends to pay it forward. In lieu of the challenge, people can donate medicines worth Rs. 100 to their nearest government hospital.

It was Manju Latha Kalanidhi's post on Facebook that started off this challenge. "My own local, practical and tangible version/response to #icebucketchallenge... save water feed the hungry!" she wrote and almost instantly received thumbs ups from all those who liked her idea.

This Indian entwine has created quite a stir online and participants are already posting their pictures to spread this new message.

Unlike the celebrities who participated in the ALS bucket challenge, it is the challenge dominated by the general public. If the celebrities also come forward with a true spirit, the purpose the challenge is intended for would be met out!!
