I was waiting for my train to Mumbai train, which was already four hours late, and as the announcement said, arriving on another platform. While walking towards the new platform, I noticed two ladies, one in her 40s and the other in her twenties, struggling with their heavy luggage. So I helped them carry their bags to the next platform, and we quickly exchange a few words and our seat number, on the train, and I went on my way.
As the train was late, I knew I couldn’t catch the last local train to my relative’s house. I didn’t know much about Mumbai, either. I thought that maybe the two ladies would understand, so I walked to their compartment to ask them how they were planning to reach their homes on reaching Mumbai. They were taking a cab and told me that I could share their taxi.
My midnight arrival in Mumbai was made more adventurous because our taxi broke down! Both the ladies were in a bit of a panic while I was calm, but then the older one called her husband, who not only came but also dropped me to a location from where I got a cab home.
A small selfless act of kindness makes the way ahead obstacle-free.
