A few days ago I was visiting a friend’s in the evening. As soon I entered the required lane, I saw two elderly persons waiting for something. I slowed down my scooty and stopped, one of them, who had a bicycle, requested me to drop the other person till where I was heading to. I saw the other person and immediately offered to help.
He was around 70 and was hardly able to manage the two big bags he was carrying with both hands. I adjusted the bags well and then started my scooty. I asked for his address and dropped him home. We chatted a bit on the way, and he was pleased that though my destination was on the other side, I still chose to drop him first. He was not expecting this kind of help and was overwhelmed.
As I was about to leave, I sought his blessings. He took out some prasadam and gave it to me happily and blessed me many times. He was a panditji on his way back from the Maa Kali temple after performing some puja.
I was delighted and smiled all the way back to my friend’s place.
