Walking home from my office in Bengaluru (a city in India), I noticed a Swiggy (a food delivery service) delivery boy looking despondent. I stopped by him and asked if there was a problem. He told me that his phone battery had died down, and as a result, he was unable to deliver the order to the customer.
Since I was returning from work, I had my laptop with me. I offered to charge his phone with my laptop, to which he gladly agreed. While we waited for the phone to get charged, I chatted with him about his own and his family’s well being.
Finally, his phone was charged enough to be operational, and he happily went on his way. I, too, felt very good.
Opportunities to be of assistance to someone in lots of small ways are always present. We must be vigilant enough not to miss them!
