    ABOUT KINDENESS AND COMPASSION
    How little it costs if we give it thought
    To make happy some heart each day!
    Just one kind word or tender smile.
    As we go on our daily way.
    Perhaps a look will suffice to clear
    The cloud from a neighbor’s face.
    And the press of a hand in sympathy,
    A sorrowful tear efface
    One walks in sunlight, as another goes
    All weary in the shade.
    One treads a path that is fair and smooth,
    Another must pray for aid.
    It costs so little, I wonder why
    We give it so little thought,
    A smile, a kind word, a glance, a touch-
    What magic by them is wrought!

    Dear Pushpa,

    Very good as usual.

    In today's hi fi world, where we do not have time and feelings to shower on one's own family, I doubt whether we have time to spend with a neighbour.

    But all the same, what you have written is true.

    Dear Chitra, Kamla, Kanaka and Vidya,
    Thank you all for your encouraging comments. In this busy world we have no time to spare for others. But yet once in a while we must try to interact with others with a smile, kind word or a good deed. This will give a boost to ourselves and make us happy.
    With regards,
    Pushpavalli
