In these times, we cannot expect unconditional help from anybody, and we even suspect the aid offered by another. But the incident with my nephew forced us to believe that there is still hope for humanity. He was going to Chandigarh on work when his car tyre burst. This happened on the highway near Nawashahar. He was alone, and there was no help available nearby. He had to walk almost 2 km to find a small dhaba (Bittu da Dhaba) on the road. As soon as he inquired about any help the owner, a Sardarji readily offered his jack and sent one of his employees with him to help change the tyre. The person then took him on his bike to another place where they filled the air in the stepney, and then he helped my nephew to change the tyre. My nephew offered him some money, but he refused, saying his employer would disapprove. My nephew then planned to go to the dhaba to thank the Sardarji, but the gentleman reached the place to inquire whether the work was completed satisfactorily.
My nephew thanked him and asked if there was any service he that could do. The Sardarji declined in Punjabi saying he was just doing whatever he could to help another. He didn’t take anything and instead offered my nephew some tea in a loving.
We were so overwhelmed to hear this that we blessed the good Samaritan from the core of our hearts.
Kindness sneaks up and finds you when you least expect it.
