Sharing is caring!

Stories stitch humans together. Stories are meant to be shared as every story has a message.

Let me share 2 opposite real life experience stories which made me wonder How bizarre this world is.



It was around 2 years back when I was working in Gurgaon. I, along with my roommate had rented a studio apartment and my Roommate’s Mother came to stay with us for few days. One bad day when…

We went to the Office, Aunty quickly rushed to the roof to dry the washed clothes without locking the door. When she came back after a while, the door was locked due to the wind. She got tensed as she didn’t carry her cell phone along, which is now locked inside. There was no one to help in the apartment as all were at their respective jobs.

She straight away went out for the help and searched for STD booth. With her honesty, she told the owner that she does not have any money to pay and in an emergency to make a call. But the STD owner had refused to help. She, disheartedly, went back to the apartment and choose to wait for us rather than taking help. She waited outside for the whole day and that too without food.  In the evening, when my Roomi was back from Office, Aunty broke into tears.

This life experience of mine put me into the doldrums but thinking about next incidence perk me up.



You must have heard about the infamous local train journey in Mumbai.Yes you are right, its overcrowded but lively and memorable.

I was new to the City and Mumbai local and moreover naive. While boarding Mumbai local 5 years ago from Andheri station, I lost my wallet having all the money and important documents when I was going to visit my Cousin who lives in Malad west.

I sat down, forlorn and confused. A girl sitting diagonally opposite to me, noticed me sulking and came to me to know the reason. She tried to console me first with her kind words as I was unable to speak up. I, stammeringly explained her the happening.

We get off at Malad station. I was feeling helpless as I was left with no money. She asked me to calm down and have something to eat. To my surprise, she took me to the nearby Eatery and offered me money to reach my Cousin’s place. I accepted her help with the promise to return the same. She did not bother if I will return the money or not and helped me taking the rickshaw. However, next day, I went to her office to return the favor and thank her again for her goodness.


real life experienceIts not about Mumbai or Delhi, people can never be same. But yes, Goodness still exists in this world and make its presence felt in some way or the other.


Do share your real life experience; Happy, sad or Inspiring.

    A lovely post and a strong message. It’s overwhelming when a perfect stranger enacts a good deed, an unconditional deed; without any expectations or requirements. I have encountered such people, on several occasion,s abroad, and home. It always stands, as reminder of all the beautiful people of this world. And thankfully so!. 🙂

      Its these good deeds which strengthens our faith in Humanity and get etched in our Hearts for forever. I feel pity for those who deny helping the one in need. Thanks for reading and sharing your viewpoint.

    I guess trust is hard to come by most of the time. Hope you got your documents back somehow too.

      Right Vinay but then I remember the words “World moves on Trust”
