Birthdays hold a special place in hearts, especially for the kids and teenagers. They want to feel special by their family and friends on their birthdays.
On a similar note, a disappointed Thai teenager drove rashly on the streets without a helmet and a license when he felt neglected by family members on his birthday. He was pulled over by a cop for over-speeding and breaking the rules.
On being probed why he broke the rules, he said that he was upset as his family members had completely forgotten about his birthday.
Understanding the sensitivity and innocence of the teenager, the cop named Kanokpan Putthapong brought a piece of cake and celebrated the boy’s birthday.
A video was posted on social media showing the sweet gesture. The boy was seen shedding happy tears and the cop holding the cake and consoling him. Later on, the boy was set free after a warning.

The cop later shared the photo on social media by posting a photo of him and the boy on Facebook with the caption, “Happy birthday, bro. This year, the police will buy you a birthday cake.”
This gesture proves how a small act of kindness can make a huge difference in one’s life. Let that be a kid or an adult, a cop or a citizen, there is no barrier to act compassionately.
