I read an incredible story that touched my Heart and there are no words that I could say. ‘God works in mysterious and silent ways’ and through us all, he helps people who are needy and absolutely penniless. They don’t even get to eat one square meal a day. There was this man who was walking home from work and what he encountered one day is narrated in his words:
“On my way home, I found a piece of paper tied to an electric pole, with a small note on it. I was curious to know what was written, hence went closer and read it. On the note it was written: ‘I have lost Rs.50/- somewhere on the Road. If anyone of you will find it, please give it to me at this address which is written on this paper. My vision isn’t great so please help.’ I was urged to follow that address and found an old hut in shatters with an older woman sitting outside. She was very frail almost skin and bones and asked who is it? when she heard my footsteps at her door. I said in a quiet voice: ‘I came by this way, found Rs.50/- on the Road and wanted to hand it over to you.’
She began crying on hearing this and said: ‘My dear, I have had at least 30-40 people come over and give me Rs.50/- saying they found it on the road. I did not write that note, I cannot even see properly nor do I know how to read and write.’ I said: ‘It’s okay dear mother you keep it.’ She then asked me to tear the note off on my way back. I walked back with a million thoughts as to who could’ve written that note? I looked around for the person who had done this kind deed but could not find him. She would have asked everyone to tear that note but none did.
I mentally thanked that person whoever it could be and realized that we just have to feel the need to help someone who requires our help and there are so many different ways to do it. Someone just wanted to help this woman who lived alone with no one to support her. As I was leaving, someone stopped me and asked: “Bro, can you help me with this address? I found this Rs.50/- note and want to handover………..
Humanity and Kindness never dies and continues to stay alive permanently. This man and so many others who had helped this old woman, were a blessing in disguise. Life only comes around once, so why not help people who are in absolute need and bring a smile on their faces. Can we be kind and humane to people all around us.
