Does Humanity Exists?
Does Humanity Exists?
In today's competitive world where general knowledge and current affairs are so important, I have almost stopped reading the daily newspaper. The definition of current affairs is now changed to a number of thefts, kidnaps and rapes in the city and how many are killed and injured due to negligence leading to accidents.
I always wonder whether humanity still exists or is dead and gone. When I ponder on my life, here are a few excerpts when I go down my memory lane.
Once I was looking for an auto on the highway to go home. I was in my second trimester and was all fit and fine. Usually, we get autos from that spot soon but that day was unusual. I almost asked 7-8 autos but none said a yes. Like me, few others were also looking for an auto to different places and everyonè was having a hard time that day.
I was patient and waited as I knew sooner or later, I will get an auto. After some time, an auto stopped. I heard a man (who was also waiting for auto like me for 15 minutes) standing beside me asking about my destination to the auto driver. Luckily the auto driver said a yes. He looked at me and said that I can go. I told him that if he is going the same place, he can also join. He said he was not going that way and he asked auto just for me. He was an elderly man. Before I even thank him properly he went away for his auto hunt. It was his way of helping a pregnant lady though I didn't ask for help or showed any sign of being tired or unwell.
Another instance is when after a tiring day in office with meetings, deadline deliverables and staying late while returning home I didn't get a seat and had to travel home standing in a bus for almost 90 minutes. After getting down from the bus I was immensely tired but had to go to pick vegetables. After taking a bag full of veggies, the aunty selling vegetables asked me whether I am unwell. She offered me to sit and also a glass of water. She asked me whether she should prepare lemon juice and asked if she could send someone with me to pick the heavy bag of veggies. I was amazed by her observation and concern. I thanked her wholeheartedly and left feeling much better than someone cared!
These instances make me think and thank that in today's materialistic world where everything is so unsafe, I met humanity for few moments like a surprise and I feel this is God's way of telling me that HE is with me always!
