A few months back, when I was on a flight, a guy in his late teens entered with his mother. Initially, she sat in the same row as us. After some time, the boy switched seats with his mother and let her sit some ten rows ahead. Then he tried to get the person sitting next to him to change places with his mother so that they could sit together. However, the person refused, citing leg space. Then he tried with the person on the other side of hi, who also replied in the negative. His mother, sitting a few rows ahead, looked extremely tense. So I requested the person sitting beside me to switch seats and managed to get the boy and his mother to sit together, while I sat in the lady’s place.
The teenager thanked me profusely as I walked up to my new seat. As his mother walked past me, she gave a soft smile filled with many emotions and gratitude. I felt happy that I could be of help to someone.
On reaching Guwahati, I was waiting for the other passengers to move ahead so that I could go back to my original place and get my bag. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the very person who refused to exchange seats carrying my bag as well as the cookies that I had forgotten in the seat pocket. I thanked him for the help.
The RAK stories I read here inspire my daily RAKs. I thank each and everyone who has shared their beautiful RAK stories and encouraged me regularly.
RAKs are contagious. 🙂
