1. This morning, when we were commuting to work, some unknown person traveling by an auto signalled something to us, pointing to the bottom part of the car. I asked V to check the lights, blinker, doors etc, all of which seemed to be in tact. Then V got suspicious of the tyre becoming flat, and stopped at a distance to check. His suspicion proved correct and he took the car to a near by centre and got it fixed.
2. Last weekend, when we had gone to watch a movie, we got some ‘corn in a cup’ in the intermission. As V had gone to get something else, I carried the two piping hot cups in two hands along with a phone and walked into the theatre. And then I started wondering how I would pull the seat back with these non-empty hands. As I reached my seat, the lady who sat next to my seat, who is a complete stranger to me, pulled it for me to sit.
3. Sometime back, when we were commuting to work, V had to stop and give way to someone who was trying to cross the road. That guy stopped and acknowledged V’s gesture with a thumbs-up sign.
Many incidents like this, however small they may be, instill a feeling in me that the world around us is beautiful, that the people around us care for each other, empathise with us !!
