My Story: This Old Man Has 2 Worthless Kids, Both Are Married And Settled

If this can’t motivate you nothing will.

I cried today and there is a reason for it. Meet Mr. Babulal, an 80 year old guy whom I met near Marol Naka, Mumbai Andheri pulling his bicycle to travel to his house which is another 2 km away. At this age he is been working to earn his livelihood and he keeps himself busy.

He has 2 kids and both are married. I won’t post the phone numbers of those worthless kids who made their dad do this and brought him to this state. He just earns enough to get his daily bread and some groceries for his house.

I gave some money to him as that was all I had at that time but I have taken his son’s number, whom I will call and may be try helping him in some other way. I am writing this because of the state Mr. Babulal is in, I sitting beside him near to his home where he is kept outside on a rotten bed without no lights and no food. Even after all this, the only thing I heard from him is “beta aapko taklif hogi mai jata hu”and his blessings that he gave me with tears in his eyes.

My Question is: Are we moving towards something big or something depressing. I choose to help him from the crowd who just pitied at him. I hate all the bystanders who choose not to help or at least comfort him. I urge to you to please keep helping people who needs them the most and keep the positivity and humanity live.

“If this can’t motivate you enough nothing will. If this can’t make you try nothing will.”
