    DOING A GOOD TURN

    I booked an Uber cab today, the driver picked me and he started the ride.
    During the ride, sbe got calls and she disconnected 2-3 times.
    After that I insisted her to pick up the call.
    She did and the talk from the other side was audible.
    It was her daughter and she was asking for a school bag.
    The driver repeatedly tried to ignore her first but later he asked her daughter to handover the phone to her hubby.
    She said “I am trying to save little money but can’t afford to buy a new bag atleast in next 2-3 days as I recently bought books for our daughter and need to pay monthly bills”.
    I changed the drop location while she was on call with her hubby and as soon as we arrived I asked the driver to come with me. The thing I was going to buy is quite heavy.
    The driver (a humble lady) came with me without asking me anything.
    I took him to a bag store and bought one school bag.
    I made the payment.

    I handed over the bag to her.
    She was speechless and just thanked me.
    Without saying a word, we reached out to the car and I said “do give your daughter a surprise today”.
    She asked me for my number and I took a picture, which I sent her.
    After an hour she sent me a picture of her daughter smiling like an angel.

    This one picture was more valuable than any money that could buy.
    We often come across bad drivers using services like #Ola or #Uber but sometimes we do meet Supermom also known as beloved Mother.
    I don’t have words, how rich I feel after this.
    But gratitude to each and every Mother who never let their kids down even in the worst situation they are going through.
    I am sure my wife would be on same wavelength as I am spending money for the school-bag.
    Just being kind and helpful one in need, the world continue to look enchanting.
