True affection is always reciprocatedThis true story only goes to show that when we show true love and affection that goes far beyond commercial considerations, it is always very easily reciprocated.
A retired headmaster of very average means met with a nasty accident a few months ago.An urgent surgery had to be done in one of his legs. This happened in a village near Coimbatore city. This headmaster had taken all pains to instil good values in children during his service. His career guidance and ability to arrange private funding for deserving students made his students respect him as a Guru.
When the students came to know of the accident, they simply took over. Without any fuss or publicity,the students pooled all the resources needed to get the operation done in a world class Coimbatore hospital. All expenses for the post operative care was also done by the students.
The headmaster was moved to tears. He had huge family responsibilities and his resources were not much. The students knew everything. They did not even make it known to many people. A person known to me very closely and to the headmaster, told me everything just a couple of days ago. The students have also arranged funds for his day to day expenses. The headmaster s only daughter who is married was so emotional about everything. The students recalled with pride all the love and affection shown by the headmaster on numerous occasions. They shared what's up messages from students settled in USA.
Though such instances are a bit rare, it does show the value of true love and affection. There is no limit to such love and affection. Till today, the students have never made any publicity. In this commercial world,such instances only prove that nothing is lost. Good values can always stand the test of time.
