I was returning home from an evening walk. He stood on one side of the road with a basket of guavas on his bicycle’s carrier. Then I saw him throwing guavas on the side of the road and beckoning to a cow on the other side of the road. He threw two more and managed to get the cow’s attention. The cow crossed the road, and he gently pushed it towards the guavas he had thrown. Another cow joined, and then they both feasted on the fruit.
I had already passed him, but then I went back and took his photo. We spoke a few simple words where he said, “It is very good to feed animals.” Just simple words and kindness.
Practicing some form of kindness is inherent and natural to everyone.
