It was just another day. I had gone to the market to buy some vegetables where I saw a young boy, in his late 20s, selling lemons. It really grabbed my attention because he could have decided to sit back at home but instead he decided to work and earn some money to make the ends meet. I thought this was really commendable.
I felt like helping him with something so I gave him a loaf of bread and a couple of bananas to take home. He was happy to get that and it was great to see the smile on his face. I also bought lemons from him. He was giving 5 lemons for ₹ 10. I bought 5 and walked back before noticing that there were 6. So I went back and told him but he smiled and said I wanted to give you an extra lemon!
I didn’t want to argue I kept that lemon and came home.
Whatever you give, you always get back a little more.
