REFLECTIONS OF LIFE (ROL) 154: AUTO DRIVER TAKING A LADY EVEN THOUGH SHE HAD LESS MONEY ON HER – SHARED BY KASTURI SEN, MY FRIEND AND FELLOW TRAINER
Residents of Kolkata, who avail the autos (3 wheeler) to commute regularly, would agree, many of the auto drivers behave very rudely especially with regard to not giving the exact change. For the non – Kolkata residents, it may not be out of place to mention that these autos take in 5 passengers (some areas 4 passengers) – 3 at the back and 1 or 2 at the either side of the driver.
But there are exceptions also. This beautiful incident is shared by my friend and fellow trainer KASTURI SEN.
She had boarded an auto and she was on the way to her destination. There was one empty seat. So the auto stood when a lady showed her hand. This lady said that she has less than the adequate fare.
Normally, the drivers would not even bat an eyelid before speeding off, as demand far exceeds supply. But this driver was different.
He asked her to board and off they went.
I feel, as many of you would agree, there are good souls everywhere. And that’s what makes the world go round.
May the tribe of these kind of good souls increase!!!
KASTURI – thank you for sharing this incident through your FB post. I took the liberty of sharing it further.
