Yesterday, Su called and told me we would dine out at Pizza Corner. I reached the place before him and so, instead of just warming the benches, decided to take a stroll; cutting down some calories before taking in more :P. The sight of Almond House tempted me to get in and pack some sweets as Su just loves them. Just as I was about to enter the door, something fell into my left eye and aggravated the already existing eye infection that I had. I just closed my eyes for sometime and then headed inside without giving much thought to the same. I started selecting the stuff and getting them packed. I turn around to see the stuff on the other side when a man said ‘Hey, what’s wrong with ur eyes? ‘. Before I could say anything, he opened my eyes wide and blew some air. I excused myself and said that I felt something fell into my eyes and I would be fine in some time. He was not convinced and asked me to rush and wash my eyes first. On enquiring for a rest room, the cashier told me the way but this man would not allow any delay and asked me to use the place nearby where they had the drinking water arrangement. Though I was completely against using that place, the way he took things in his hands, made me feel he is the authority figure there and proceeded to do as he asked me to The man asked for some tissue papers. I thanked him and said I had a hankey which I would use. After wiping off my face, I open my eyes to see that this man is cleaning the sink with the tissue papers. I asked him to please handover the tissues to me. What was happening was beyond comprehension. The cashier, who was fuming until now, had his heart melted by this gentleman’s action and came running telling him that he would get the place cleaned. Honestly speaking, in the present scenario, where we find so many stupendous acts of crime making it to the news headlines almost everyday, the word ‘trust’ seems to be a forgotten word which exists only in the dictionary. I was wondering why this man was helping me so much! I see people who think 100 times to help their kith and kin and doing so much to a stranger was something which was hard to believe. It may be a small gesture of kindness but it really struck a chord.
