25 OctA Way Of Reaching Out To God – Help Needy People

old lady

  • Last night I was coming back from my office on a metro. I noticed one old lady in the other compartment, she was selling band – aids. Then I spotted some young crowd laughing and sharing some jokes.
  • The old lady approached the group but startlingly not even a single person from that group even bothered to pay attention to that old lady. I felt like blindfolding every single person from the group and beating them with iron rods.
  • Each one of them looked from a decent family and if they had bought one small packet of band-aid that wouldn’t have made a difference to them. But they didn’t. MEAN BASTARDS.
  • It’s heartbreaking to notice people who spend lot of money in hanging out at expensive places, buying branded clothes and not even thinking twice before spending money on themselves. But when it comes to spending “few pennies” on needy people they hesitate. It’s completely ridiculous.
  • The lady looked so fragile and tired… when you are of that age it becomes hard to even walk but the old lady made an initiative to buy her own living. She could have just begged but I guess she is the woman who has strong self esteem which is quite admirable.

    • So coming back to the whole incident, the old lady was quite far away from me and then the train stopped. I had to get down on my station, and luckily the woman also got down on the same station.
    • While stepping down at the platform I went to that lady and gave the money “as if I want to buy the band – aidz” She took out the band – aid and offered me. But I said no it’s alright, I kept the band – aid back into her bag.

    I just gave her a hug and walked away. Everybody prays to god to fulfill their wishes. But when it comes to doing something for helping someone in need – They just BACK OUT. It’s preposterous…

      Dear writer, I am very much impressed with your thoughts about helping the needy people. Yes, we should buy things from the people who really work hard for very few money because they have to fulfil minimum requirements of thier families. We should have respect to such people who do not want to burden anyone and who really work hard even in old age. We spend lot of money without thinking much. Sometimes we purchase things due to temptation, because we like the things, its presentation but actually we dont require. We should make up our mind try to offer some money to poor and needy people, who are really in need of.

    2. […] there are a few incidents when I hugged strangers. I guess I have shared that with all of you in this post . Second incident that pops up to my mind is this old lady I meet very often; usually I see her […]
