    :hello:BENEVOLENCE IN BUS:hello:

    I hopped into the bus full of passengers upto brim. Seeing the crowd inside, I was upset. There was no place to sit.

    Just then, a person vacated his seat.The man standing close to the vacant seat could have sat there, but instead he offered the seat to me.

    At the next stop, the same thing happened again. He gave his seat to another. This happened 4 times during the entire journey.

    The man looked like a normal worker, returning home after a long day at work.

    At the last stop when all of us got off, I spoke to him.

    "Why were you giving your seat to another person every time you got a vacant seat?"
    His answer astounded me.

    "I haven’t studied much in my life nor do I know many things. I don't have much money either. So I don't have anything much to give to anyone. That's why I do this everyday. It is something I can do easily."

    "After working all day I can stand for a little longer. I gave my seat to you and you said that - that thank you. It gave me immense satisfaction that I did something for someone.

    I do this daily & feel I am contributing in some way.
    I go back home refreshed & happy every day that I gave something to someone."
    I was speechless!

    Wanting to do something for someone on a daily basis is the ultimate gift.

    This stranger taught me a lot.
    How easy it is to be enriched from within!

    Beautiful clothes, lots of money in the bank account, expensive gadgets, accessories & luxuries or even educational degrees - may or may not make you rich in mind and happy forever;
    but i believe, a small act of kindness of leaving the accommodation to another needy in good time is enough to make you feel instantly rich & Happy.
