I was travelling in an Uber and it was a long drive. I always have a habit of listening to Gita or Lalitha Sahasranama while in the cab. That day also I had my Bluetooth on but couldn’t concentrate since the driver was getting calls again and again.
I stopped my music and heard his conversation and learnt that his EMI of 5K was due that day and the reminders calls were for that. I kept quiet till we reached the destination and handed him 5K saying just relax, everything will be OK.
He was thanking me profusely and asked how to return it. I just told him to pay forward, help someone else. I didn’t want the money back.
Helping someone whom you might never meet again is a precious memory.
