I lived in rented accommodation in Manipal during my college, and the flat owner lived in Bangalore. Three of us were sharing the flat at that time. Our pocket money used to come at different times, and we were careless and didn’t pay rent on time. About one year’s rent was pending, and I couldn’t summon the courage to tell my parents that I had spent all the money needed more for rent.
The owner then decided to sell the flat, and the owner asked us to vacate the flat, giving us a month’s notice. I decided to take a refund from my food court account and a loan from my friend and pay my part. When the owner came to visit us, he somehow realised our situation and refused to take the rent. When we gave the maintenance bill, he did some calculations and returned some money from that bill too. I cannot describe the feeling that I had due to that incident. It changed something in me. He showed us an example of kindness we never expected from someone. I am not in touch with him now, but I decided I’ll keep that spirit alive and try to be as kind as possible throughout my life. My carelessness also vanished after that incident. Thank you for such a precious lesson, sir. God bless you. ❤️❤️
Our conduct has the ability to change someone’s life.
