Then I thought over it that we see many big people in big cars least bothered about pedestrians, , they will just pass through with a needle;s space between them and people and we feel-what has world come to ? So its not money or splendour which makes you feel good but the goodness of people which moves you, makes you happy
I remember one incident from the past........long time back, when we were in Noida, I used to go to learn shorthand and typing by bus. While returning I was standing at the bus stop and whenevr the bus came, the crowd surged, as there is no cue system in delhi, and i was left standing, then a young boy of 14-15 came, he was coming back after his sports, he saw this, and when the next bus comes, what I see that he stops it, and stands behind me, and doesnt get into the bus till i have boarded. he was a very well dressed boy, must be from a rich family and due to preconceived notions, one expects brattish,and may be rowdy but not this polite well mannered behaviour from them. I was so impressed, immediately the thought came to my mind----his parents are blessed to have a son like him, and i vowed to teach my children, who were young at that time, to be kind and polite all the time. These things are very small but leave a long lasting impression, this happened to me 20 yrs back but whenevr i think about that boy a smile comes to my fce and I mutter-god bless him!
I always try to help wherever I can, though in India pro active woman are still stared at, even if somebody asks the location of some placewhich I dont know, I try to go that extra mile to find it, even at the cost of my hubby's exasperation:)
