WHEN THE HEART POURS OUT....

As I moved to the new city on my job and subsequently the next day hired an auto rickshaw that on the way stopped at a signal for green, the driver in conversation with me knowing from where I came to the his city asked..
  • "Aap ke city me single hai?" 
thus bringing out the true innocence of the young man at work when actually what he meant was 'signal'..

At one point of time during my stay there, when I paid the man transporting certain goods to a place the charges agreed to initially, he returned part of it saying,
  • "Maine galat se suna dusari jagah ka nam.. idhar thak hum itenehi paise lete!"
thus stressing the importance of charging the right to the customer for his effort never looking out for extras there in..

After completion of my Assignment at the new city when I was transferred back to my city in the mid of the month and accordingly preparing to leave the place along with my family, the middle aged driver who used to transport my children to school daily returned part of the money I paid in the month beginning and as I causally said that he could retain that for the good service he rendered all along, the man smiled and said,
  • "Bachhe bhagavan ka roop hote hai.. Aise mein hum paise kabhi bhi jyada nai le sakte!"
thus truly bringing out the need of respecting the fundamental truth of life to the core totally satisfied with that bestowed upon him by the Almighty..

After settling at my place, on a day when I was walking on the road, the young laborer digging on road to lay the main water pipe line smiled at me and said,
  • "Saab! Chai ke liye paise dedo!" 
thus very much asserting his right to get tips from the users for the sacred service rendered by him provisioning the most essential commodity of life..

Subsequently when I sat in the auto rickshaw and the vehicle moved on, the driver silently doing his job confided to me that he stayed far off and daily would leave his place in the early morning hrs, go to the corners of city picking up all types of passengers saying 'No' to none, start returning around 7 PM and reach home by 10 PM thru' final words..
  • "Meri gadi chalti rahe to hi mein kush rahunga!" 
thus very much confirming the need of dedicated working and resting not in the active period of a man's life..

Finally after my retirement from Service on a day at a cosmopolitan Mall in search of Restroom when I happened to notice a Luxury Restroom on chargeable basis and asked the young girl at the counter for directions to normal Restroom, she just confirmed the facility on Top floor but seeing me smiled and said,
  • "Achha.. Aaap ab yeh facility use kar sakte!"
thus showing off her grace of helping a Senior Citizen with due care!

  1. Observing human nature on one's errant is akin to meditation. I believe it should be called as a wakeful meditation. Nice observations sir :)

  3. There are good people everywhere. Probably it depends on our approach too. I too have experience some real nice gestures in cities alien to me. This is a post worth pondering on.
