As part of the government’s mission to grow vegetables in every house, the Kudumbhasree ( women empowerment programme) workers about 8 of them came to my house to plant the free allotted vegetable saplings. They would prepare the land and plant it for us. Realizing it was a RAK opportunity, I planted every sapling myself after they had prepared the soil. They patiently waited and helped until I planted and watered them all. They looked tired, so I made lemonade, and they were happy to take it. Then I saw that they were again preparing the land. I was not sure what they were planning to do? Then one of the workers looked at my puzzled face and smilingly said that they were providing more plants to me for the pleasantness with which I planted them and as a gratitude for the lemonade I prepared for them. I would have done none of this had I not been introduced to the Black lotus app. She said this sentence, “this is a special gift from us to you”. A simple act of kindness from my side resulted in a profound act of kindness from their side.
