Today morning as I was on my way to office, I boarded a rickshaw which was being driven by a person almost thrice my age. He was driving it slowly and every inch of the movement kept on making me feel pity and sadenned by the whole affair. After some distance I alighted from the rickshaw and paid him the money. He was so happy over his ‘bohni’. I did not have any change other than the money I gave else I would have paid him more.
What came as a shock is the disparity in the wealth distribution in the country and how the lack of education is affecting all. What also hit home was the point that we don’t call ourselves lucky over what we possess but just crib about it. Probably with a little bit of help and a little bit of compassion we can do something to make this world a better place to live in for everyone. I am still searching for the answer.
