Maintaining humanity by ourselves to the possible extentHumanity is reducing in ourselves day by day. It is rare to see persons with humanity among us . Even ladies are not offering their seat to a pregnant lady or an old lady on seeing them near their seat. I read in a Tamil magazine about the humanity the writer found in a foreign city. When he went to a restaurant with his friend (local person), his friend obtained token for four cups of coffee by telling, 'four coffee, two for others'. Similarly another person got token by saying,'five meals, three for others'. On inquiry it was clear that they were offering the cash for food to other needy persons. The aged and poor people approaches the hotel to check whether any
account is there and they are given food and coffee from the money that has already been paid by others.
Similarly, once, in Mathunga side of Mumbai, I saw that a person who took breakfast ordered four idlis as parcel which he gave to a beggar outside the hotel. I learned that day that it is a good practice. But I had a bad experience too where an old man in the railway station threw away the chapattis offered to him by my wife and started consuming liquor taken from his pocket.Then onward we planned to help only the really needy persons.
However the extension of our humanity to others never dropped out on any situation or circumstance and I continue helping others in whatever way I can. What is your take on this humanity aspect?
