Rickshaw puller




Rickshaws are a very popular transport in Kolkatta. I get onto a rickshaw not because I love to save time but to provide some money to the hardworking rickshawpullers whose livehood are the rickshaws.

One day along with my mom-in-law, I decided to go to my parents' house. We got into a tram and got down at the stop.
From the stop, we got into a rickshaw to reach our destination.
While nearing my parents' house, I got down from the rickshaw to buy some sweets.
To my horror, I found that I had lost my wallet. I was at a loss how to pay the sweetmonger when the tired rickshaw puler came up and offered to pay saying I could pay him back when I reached my parents' house.
It was indeed kind of him.

I will ever remain grateful to the kindhearted rickshaw puller.

I used to stay in an area where rickshaw pullers had their dwellings.
Every night from the adjacent dwelling, I could hear their revelry till late night. Maybe dancing away their blues pulling human loads.

People like the rickshaw puller make us believe in humanity don't they?

Isn't it wonderful when human nature shows us its best side? What a lovely story about humanity and humility. That rickshaw puller will go far-- pun unintended!
