Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The World is Full of Good People

A while back I was on a visit to Indore, a busy commercial city in  India. One eevning, while taking a walk, I noticed a young boy of maybe 13/14 yrs old.  He could barely walk on account of his bowed-type legs, he certainly wasn't able to walk quickly. I could see that he was desperately waiting to cross the road.  This particular road was a highway and it was very busy.  

I approached him on my way and asked him whether he needed any help. He was grateful and asked me if I could help him cross the road.  It was not a regular crossing point and didn't have a pedestrian signal. 

I myself hadn't intended to cross the road but I wanted to help the boy.  I held his and and took him across, signalling at the traffic to help us cross the road.  It was 9 pm and it was dark and dangerous to cross even for the able bodied and I could not imagine how that boy would have been able to cross without the help of somebody.

When we reached the other side, the boy thanked me and went on his way, singing . As I watched him, I realised this boy must have to rely on other people to help him as party of his daily life.  It occured to me that the world is full of good people who would quiety help a boy like this and probably not even mention it to anyone.

I wouldn't call it a "daily routine job" but I would rather call it the natural kindness, so natural that they do it daily. One day the world will be like that kindness will be as natural as breathing. Love and Light and a Million Smiles, Bluebell
