Message “Hot Payment Successful” is displayed on my computer screen.
I just transferred Rs5000 to Mr. XYZ whose father is in comma due to a car accident. Do I know Mr. XYZ?
No but he is a part of the Infosys as well as my project (Barclays).
I remember an old adage which my grandmother used to say
“Insaaniyat hi sabse badha dharma hain”
(Being a good Human being is the biggest religion).
A part of my body (specifically my brain) was projecting a different story in front of me. My brain never said No to the charity but it was giving me very attractive options to utilize Rs5000.
Myriads of thoughts started entering my mind such as –
I can buy a new tommy Hilfiger watch which I had been longing for past few months.
I can buy those Puma Converse shoes which I saw in the store the other day.
I can buy those polaroid Shades which I saw in the Shoppers Stop.
Our mind always play tricks with us !
I took a deep breath and thought for one minute.
I realized in the race to accumulate huge pile of wealth, we forget simple lesson which we learnt as a kid –
“The more you Give, The more you Get”.
My new watch can wait,
My new pair of converse show can wait,
& My new shades can wait
But the money required for the treatment of man’s life can’t wait.
Be good, Do good !
