We have always heard “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” “Helping” is one of the greatest virtues possessed by mankind. But in today’s corrupted world there are very few who would help you without any ulterior motive. I remember a man living on the sidewalks of our school lane.
He had no house to live in and was mentally retarded. He had a small kid who stayed with him. He had no fixed place to live. He would settle on any lane he found empty for the day. He had torn clothes, and so did his son.
One day I was standing for my bus at the bus stop. I was in class 5 then. It was 2:10 pm, and I saw a man who had torn unwashed clothes. It was the type of appearance where you would take a step back from them so that they couldn’t reach or touch you. But for some reason, he grabbed my special attention. He had 2 small bowls of rice and curry he got from somewhere and was heading towards his son. Some hungry street dogs were roaming around barking for food. He handed over one bowl to his son, took the other bowl, and gave it to the dogs. I was very small to understand what was happening or look deep into it. I observed him doing the same thing quite many times. Years passed, but in class 7, I told my friends about this incident and decided to collect 10 rupees from all and buy him something to eat.
I wanted to help him as I grew up and started to understand what was happening, but sadly, we could never find the man. Some said he died of sickness; others said he got under some truck. We never really know what happened to him, but I know something that he made me know. That man had nothing, but was selfless enough to give away his everything for the street dogs. I still remember that incident and the lesson that man taught me.
