We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. An act of kindness, how small it may be is a big step towards humanity.
Shalini Girish, a Mumbaikar whose family is stuck in flood-hit Chennai, shared an inspiring story on her facebook wall about an auto driver while traveling in the city.
“Was travelling in an auto in Mumbai when I received a call which I answered in Tamil. After the call the auto driver says “Madam aapke pehchan wale sab teek hain.” I said yes they are and proceeded to have a conversation with him on the tragedy. After ten minutes reached my destination & was paying him the fare when he says. “nahin chahiye madam ,mere taraf se aapke sheharwalon keliye yeh paisa se kuch bhi madat kardijiye. Garib hoon itna hi de saktha hoon. Allah unki raksha karein.” Saying this he just drove off leaving me speechless.”
Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone, anyone who can shows courage to do something which needs to be done. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity. This ‘auto driver’ is a hero in its true sense.
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
