Honesty and goodness have nothing to do with a person’s economic or social status. Sunil Kumar, 38, stands as an example for the same. 33-year-old businessman Utkarsh Katta took a cab to check into a hotel in Saket, New Delhi, but little did he know he had left his bag containing ₹4.5 lakh in the cab. Meanwhile, Sunil Kumar, the 38-year-old cab driver, who dropped Katta at Saket noticed a bag with the aforementioned amount of cash left at the backseat of his cab. He saw the bag only after he reached the taxi stand at the IGI Airport.

Kumar immediately informed the stand authorities, and with the help of a receipt with the consumer’s details found in the bag, managed to locate the owner. Katta, too, was worrying about the whereabouts of the bag. Soon, he was contacted by the Kumar, and his bag was returned to him, with all the money in place. As a token of gratitude, he offered Kumar ₹5000. “It is a miracle that I got my bag back,” said Katta. “I realised the bag was missing only after checking in at the hotel. After I asked the hotel staff to check CCTV footage, I got a call from the driver. You rarely see such honesty these days.” The Delhi Airport Taxi Union (DATU) is using this example to encourage their drivers to aid their travellers, and help create a reliable customer-server relationship. “Passengers often forget their belongings in taxis. You may think kaali-peeli taxis are unsafe, but our drivers always inform us in case of such a situation,” said Rajesh Kumar, president, DATU.


The Logical Indian applauds Sunil Kumar for his sincerity. We are certainly in a world where honesty and sincerity is found wanting. Sunil Kumar sets a great example for all of us to tread the path of truthfulness.
