He is poor. He was ill for six months. When he returned from hospitalization to duties, I was shocked to look at his face. Face was looking like burnt brinjal.
I started thinking about him. How much sufferings he might have had. Personal suffering due to illness. Family sufferings. Financial sufferings.
GOD is really cruel. HE even not allows man to live to a minimum life.
OK, let the GOD be one side, what is that ‘you’ are doing for this. I thought of paying him Rs. 5000 in a closed packet. I would do this immediately after salary for the month is received. One month passed.
I will pay Rs. 3000 because Rs. 5000 too much for me(?). Yes, I have the amount in my pocket. Today I will call him and pay him. Another month passed.
Let me do it this way! I’ll call a meeting of my colleagues, on this issue. Request each to share some bucks. I’ll add the balance, so that total becomes Rs. 3000. What an idea! The very next moment, a thought swirled my mind that I would be burdening my colleagues by putting this issue before them. Few weeks passed.
Are you really concerned, because he is not expecting anything from you? What is that you are looking from this donation? Goodwill, sympathy, donor label, self esteem…
