Can we not pause for a while to help others?I have often seen people rushing to cross a road without bothering to note the old people or a blind person waiting helplessly, a little scared to cross on their own. When you are anyway crossing yourself, can you not stop and help them too? What is this apathy & indifference? To their credit, I have seen traffic police personnel helping such people, but the general public as such do not seem to care at all.
I myself make it a point to stop and help those who are obviously frightened at crossing a major junction. If it is a side road where there are no signals as such, then too I help out. I will step a little away from the kerbside, firmly put up my hand, look straight at the drivers & make the vehicles stop. Then I turn my back on them and ensure everyone has crossed over, then cross over myself. I don't care two hoots if I the drivers start honking & I've created a jam!
