I was leaving the office( the NSC Building, Madhapur) when I saw an old lady in her sixties with a small plastic bag. Something internally made me approach her and enquire why she was there.
She said she had been waiting for her son for the last two days and didn’t have money to return to her hometown. I think I gave her Rs 300, and she replied that she would money order the amount once she reached her hometown.
On my way to the office, the security guard gave me a smile that said, ” Sir, you fell for the drama.” I told myself if she were in trouble for real, the money would help her reach her village; else, it’s ok, Rs 300 gone.
Do the best you can, the rest doesn’t matter.
