Yesterday, there was someone looking for me in my workplace. I wondered who it was. As soon as I saw, it was him………
Last week, I was returning back to my room on Sydney Train. I was about to sit on the middle of the upper compartment where I usually but today it was different scenario. There was a wallet on it and there was no one on that compartment.
I was in Dilemma. Couple of thoughts rose on my mind.
Should I take the wallet with me?
Why should I care?
What about giving it back to the respective person?
What if I will be suspected for the wrong doing?
What about being ethical?
What if it was your wallet?
Well, those questions were hard to tackle at that moment but I said to myself that I need to return this wallet to the respective person.
I picked up the wallet, put it in a side and wait for a moment to cool down myself.
After a minute, I just checked the wallet to figure out if there could be any contact address so that I could return it to its owner.
There was couple of bank cards, small notes, some cash, opal card, photo ID but none of them have any contact number. Well, I did found his living address. So, I was thinking about posting the wallet to that address.
In the next station, an old man came and started searching here and there. I watched him for some minutes and I felt like he was searching for that wallet.
Are you looking for your wallet? – I asked him.
‘‘Oh….. Thank you very much. I was so worried that I thought I almost lost it.”, he replied.
Further, he kept on saying,” I have so many important stuffs over here which would take me long time to recover hadn’t I not found it.”
”Thank you for your Honesty. Now, my faith on human being has been raised.”
” No worries.” I replied.
”Could you please provide me your address so that I could send you some thank you as an appreciation.” – he
”Thank you very much for that but I am OK. Just make sure that everything is fine with your wallet.” – I
As he insisted, I just gave him the address of my work place and he went away.
He just gave me a warm hug. It felt like I have done so much for him. He took out a thank you card, wrote my name on it and gave me with deep sense of fulfillment.
And it made my day……….
One of the best day of my life.
