A few days ago, as I was walking down to the bus stop in the morning, I came across a sight that can only be termed extraordinary. Extraordinary. May be even that word does not do complete justice but I will stick to it for paucity of a better descriptive.

I saw a fairly young man, probably in his late twenties, parting with the contents of his lunch box to feed a homeless couple. The man did not appear to be from an affluent background. Perhaps, that one act of kindness would adversely affect his monthly budgeting. Even so, he was capable of compassion.

That got me to think. May be it is within my means to do more for society than I previously thought. May be I should stop talking about how the world can be a better place for all of us, and start doing something about it. May be, in our own humble ways, we can all play our parts.

Like that saying goes:

Little drops of water, little grains of sand
Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land

What we do may appear to us a drop in the ocean. But would not the ocean be that much less without that drop?

To conclude, I do not know what made me write this down and share. Probably it was my own guilt as a result of selectively seeing or hearing things. Will this make me do more for the less fortunate? I cannot say. But it has made me think about it. That, I suppose, is a start.
