Malleswaram, Jan 21: Happiness comes in small packages, they say. And this story is no less. Viral in cyber space, the incident shows a rare feat of humanity that is missing from our daily lives.
An unknown traveller on a business meeting to Kerala's Malapurram, came to a restaurant after a long day, ordered some food for his hungry stomach and got attracted to a pair of siblings, a boy and girl, looking hungrily at the food plates that lay ahead.
The man called the two and ordered for food for them. The urchins too responded with dignity. They accepted the offer, but not without washing their hands. They finished the meal, washed their hands and left. Our main protagonist had forgotten his hunger and had not touched the food. He was not hungry anymore. He quietly ate his meal and asked for the bill after finishing it.
Here comes the surprise, goodness overloaded. Written in Malayalam was a not on the bill, which said,"We do not have a machine that can bill humanity. Godspeed!"
For a moment, two people in the restaurant were the happiest, their conscience satiated. That's goodness.
