Sonu was a teenage girl in her early twenties. One day she and her friends attended their friend's wedding and Sonu was about to return home. A voice called her from behind, " Sonu! Would you like to join us? We will drop you near our home and you can catch an autorickshaw from there". The person who asked Sonu this was Tinu's father. Sonu thought it would be safe to join them as it's already half-past nine and it's pitch dark. As stated, Tinu's father dropped her and left. Sonu examined the place as soon as she got down from their car. The place was deserted and there was no residence nearby. It was filled with darkness and there were no street lights, but she observed many lorries being parked at both sides of the road.


In the moonlight, she could see a group of men sitting in between the lorries. They were intoxicated. Sonu got scared as they noticed her and started walking in the opposite direction. When she took almost ten feet she saw a woman walking towards her. The woman was in her mid forties. She wore a multicolored saree and blue blouse and had her hair pleated nicely. When the woman came near she enquired why Sonu was there at this time of the hour. To Sonu's surprise, the woman stayed with her till an autorickshaw crossed by. The autorickshaw stopped and when Sonu boarded the woman boarded along with her. Sonu enquired that woman. " Who are you? and why are you accompanying me?. The woman's reply made Sonu spellbound. I have a daughter around your age and I feel it's unsafe for you to travel this late. She accompanied her till Sonu's home and returned to the same place where they boarded the autorickshaw as her home was near there.


Moral: People who help others without expectations are angels in disguise. Many angels cross us in our daily lives, only that we forget to notice them!
