A few days ago, I landed at the Bombay Airport (India)and took a cab to my scheduled destination in South Bombay.I was enjoying the busy traffic with people rushing in every possible direction and then we stopped at a very busy crossing.
As we waited for the signal to turn green, I noticed a poor young boy, about 12 years old. He took a piece of bread out of his pocket and took a bite.
As he was about to take his next bite, a stray dog wagged its tail looking at him. Without hesitation, he sat down and put the bread on the ground for the dog for eat.
The dog sniffed the bread and left. The boy waited until he was sure the dog was gone and then he picked up the bread and ate it.
My heart cried and I wanted to walk up to the boy, but before I could open the door, the light turned green and out taxi drove away. I kept thinking about the boy the whole day, and later during my evening meal I realized that I was thinking of approaching the boy but I never did. I could have stopped the car and walked up to him which again I never did.
What I did was just “thinking ”while the poor little boy, who seemed very hungry shared his only piece of bread with the dog.
I learned one of the biggest lessons in my life, despite never having a conversation with the boy. He taught me to share love and happiness. I am so grateful to have learned this from my “little unknown friend”. It is my moral duty to share this incident with all my friends across the globe. I thanked him for making this world a beautiful place.
