Stories of Kindness from Around the World

An Opportunity to Help Someone Like My Mother

--by vsoul, posted Dec 28, 2009

I was visiting a friend in Delhi yesterday, together we went to visit a temple.

While my friend was parking the car outside the temple, I saw an old woman asking for money from the people in the car next to ours. They ignored her, the car just pulled out of parking and drove off. I took out some money to give her.

When I got off the car, I saw that the woman was using a walker support to help her walk and she looked quite troubled.  I went up to her and asked what her problem was. She said that she needed money to get to the hospital. I patted her on the shoulder and gave her enough money so that she could hire a rickshaw and go comfortably instead of taking public transport, which can be very bad in India.

When we returned from the temple, she again walked up to us with folded hands and thanked us. I told her that she was my mom's age and that she didn't need to thank me, it was my pleasure to help her. My friend offered her a food packet. That woman smiled and seemed to be so sincerely grateful.

In my life I always try to do kind deeds to as I belive that this what God wants us to do - to serve those who are in need.
