In this fast-paced world where almost every adult is busy trying to figure out their lives, it isn’t easy to notice little things that make a difference. While the Internet is filled with trolls, jokes and memes, it is also a place where heartwarming stories are shared. One such story of a woman in Mumbai, whose random act of kindness has inspired many on social media. Shared on the page Humans of Bombay, the story of an unnamed woman, who spoke about a particular incident, has gone viral and warmed many hearts. In the short post, the lady narrated the incident which took place while she was travelling via a local train.
It read, ” A while ago, I was on the local train when a lady in my compartment couldn’t find her ticket and didn’t have enough money for a replacement. The conductor asked her to get off the train at the next stop — this lady looked so humiliated and scared. I decided to pay for her ticket — I didn’t know her, but if I was in her situation I would have wanted someone to do that for me…so I did. She thanked me, I said it was okay and forgot about it. A few days later, I was shopping at a market, when a lady came upto me and asked if I recognized her. Turns out, she was the one I helped on the train! She insisted on paying me back and we ended up getting coffee later — she’s one of my really good friends today. So I guess — sometimes, just put yourself in the other person’s shoes and attempt to FIRST give the kindness you expect from the world…and life may just end up surprising you.”
