Serving mankind is more than serving God.It is 26th January. All the school children are going to the flag hoisting in the school. Mohan and Ramu are waiting in the bus stand. They were holding tricolour flag of India in their hands. They are very much excited about the republic day celebrations after hearing from their grandfather the previous night the heroics of various freedom fighters to get independence to the country.
Mohan noticed an old man who is slowly walking from the other side of the road and trying to cross the road. He is holding two bags in both of his hands. He is not able to walk properly because of the weight in the hands. Mohan asked Ramu to come with him. Both of them reached the old man and helped the old man by carrying the bags and escorting him to cross the road. The old man thanked the two boys and waiting in the bus stand.
This total episode has been watched by the School Head Master from a side who entered into that road when these boys were helping the old man. He appreciated both of them for the kind-hearted and helping nature. He has taken them to school with him.
The flag is hoisted by the Head Master and in his address, he appreciated these two boys by their names and advised all other boys also to have kindness and affection to old and needy people. He told the students that serving mankind when they are in need is more than serving God. He offered special gifts to Mohan and Ramu as a token of appreciation for their helping nature.
They are thrilled and they are feeling very happy for the recognition they got on that day. They are very eager to go back to the house and inform the parents about the total happenings.
