A Hand Up

Yesterday, August 14, I visited new friend's apartment. We went there together by bus. I paid for their bus fare too. I talked to the bus conductor about positive thinking, told him story and my experiences about it. I also gave him booklet on positive thinking and some quote cards to share with others. I cracked some jokes. I gave quote cards to bus passengers also.

I gave homemade sesame sweets to my new friend.

We had a nice talk using pencil and paper as I am not able to listen clearly. I assured him to help buy his apartment according to my resource.

His son and daughter have to walk almost one hour to go to school. They badly need bicycles. I will find way to help them.

I gave Utthan laptop to friend's son to use with permission from Utthan. I also gave some groceries to them.

Two months ago, my new friend's family used to live on footpath. I was fortunate to help them to resume their business of selling banana. I will encourage him to add new items.

I am grateful to Sri Sathya Sai Baba for giving me opportunities to serve and helping and guiding me to make them happen.

I am also grateful to KS friend who helped me to put this in perspective and image too.
