This morning I got a call from my domestic help who worked part-time for me four years ago. She was inconsolable as she had lost her younger brother the previous day, leaving behind two young children. Her mother was too old to look after them. I knew she was in need but was hesitant to ask. I immediately transferred some money to her mother’s account and asked her to perform the last rites of her son. I also assured her further help regarding the children’s education.
An act of loving kindness is never wasted.
