From Hospital to Home with some Help
--by luckyman, posted Sep 14, 2010
The other day I found an old man and his wife sitting by a footpath looking exhausted. On asking I learnt that he had just been discharged from hospital and was going home ( I could make out some bandages around his neck, partially covered by the shirt ).
He and his wife had to walk some distance to reach the bus stop and the hot and humid weather was obviously taking its toll on them both.
I made up my mind to help them and I put them in auto rickshaw (a three wheeler taxi) and paid the fare to their house.
As he got into the auto, I saw the look of relief and gratitude on his face. It was worth million dollars! I felt very blessed and felt sorry for those who saw his condition but did not reach out to help. For me it is very hard to ignore people in need, especially when I am in a position to help.
Who knows ..... some day I may be old .... needing help .....
One sure way to feel good is to do good.
