A Chance to do Good...


I had gone to the library for my normal rounds. While returning, I came across two boys standing at the bottom of the stairs, looking rather puzzled. I enquired about what had happened. At first, they were reluctant to speak, but later said that they ran short of ten rupees out of the forty that they had to pay as late fees for a book. I asked whether they had re-issued the book online. They answered in the negative, and one of them, in a trembling voice said that his friend had lost his mobile and so could not re-issue the book as he had lost the password and code.

Telling them that I would give them the money, I took them to my office and pulled out forty rupees from my purse, asking them to keep the remaining amount with them as they might need it for the way back. They were, however, reluctant to accept the money and took just the ten rupee note. I advised them: "Never be reluctant to do good to others, however insignificant..." They were touched by my words and touched my feet, not once but many times. They did not feel like leaving my office. I could feel the genuineness of what they were doing and the overwhelming gratitude in their hearts.

I, in turn, was very happy that I could touch the hearts of two students through a very small act of charity. Charity, I feel, is the quintessence of education, as it develops values through little acts of sharing and giving. This is what I repeatedly exhort my teachers to do: to touch the hearts of their students. It need not always be through material things but through appreciation and kind words and reaching out to them. I feel my day has been truly rewarded as I got a chance of doing what the day demanded of me and gave me more than a chance to live my faith.

It is exam season and I had sent a "Best Wishes" video online. Hope you all listened to it. Remember that learning is not simply about books, but is rooted in the values that one learns from everyday life and experiences. And last but not the least, always remember that at the end of the day, what matters is not the marks you score, but the number of lives and hearts you touch.


God bless you all
