What prompted me to write this blog was a recent incidence which happened in India and took the whole nation by surprise. To elaborate on how honesty has its own reward 🙂
It is an incident which happened in Jaipur, a rickshaw driver whose name is Mohammed Aabid Qureshi found Rs. 1.17 Lakhs cash on road and to everyone’s surprise did not keep it but rather submitted it in a Police Station with the help of a social activist Sabir Qureshi. This rickshaw puller earns barely Rs. 4000 to 5000 a month and this amount was a lot for him, but he was such a pure soul that he deposited it in a police station of the city. In today’s world you do not find such people it is rarest of the rare case, however the hype and appreciation media gave it should certainly influence many others 🙂
On every form of media this story was covered, EasynHappy got to know about it through radio. Initially when got to know about this story, the end of it predicted was that very nice of him and even Police applauded him for it, media covered him and people would remember him as a very honest person and he has earned a lifetime respect and admiration from all his fellow Indians, which in itself is such a big thing. But there was a little more to it, some people got so touched by his act of generosity that what you will read in next few lines would just make you feel that he really deserved this reward as well.
A social activist, Lal Chand Nagpal from Bangaluru was so impressed by the act of Aabid that in the presence of commissioner of Police and the other activist Sabir Qureshi decided to gift Aabid an e-Rickshaw. It was sponsored by the business man turned activist Mr. Nagpal and the keys were handed over to Aabid by Commissioned of Police.
Mr. Nagpal flew down all the way from Bangaluru and met Aabid and his family and found them very humble people and in order to increase their daily income and to make their life better gifted him the e-Rickshaw.
The day commissioner handed over keys of e-Rickshaw to Aabid there were tears of joy, whole of his family was extremely happy.
At the end would like to say, one good act can fetch you so much respect and happiness. Indeed Honesty has its own reward. It was a live example of a quote from the book Secret the Power by Rhonda Byrne, “the more you give, the more you get” and also to end it would like to say, “honesty has its own rewards!”
