Random acts of kindness
Humans, having known as cognizant, are superior of all beings. Among many abilities, an extraordinary ability to showcase spontaneous gesture of kindness towards fellow humans, undoubtedly, makes us special beings. Commendable as it sounds: We, Nepalese, are typically famous for our friendly and generous nature. It is overwhelming to see one people helping the other; humanity is truly praiseworthy.
No matter where we belong, albeit, as a human being we need to have compassion and kindness towards our fellow humans. Even small acts of kindness: Offering seat to an elderly person in a bus or helping them cross a road, gives us a beautiful feeling.
Our country is facing a great personal and economical loss. It is disheartening to say that our beloved brothers and sisters are compelled to leave their homes to escape ruthlessness of nature. Physical, mental, emotional and economical amount of losses they have had to go through, as a result of bestial inundation, is insurmountable.
While we are fortunate enough to have access over daily meal and a comfortable bed, our heart goes tender if we think whether those who are suffering even get the opportunity of a proper meal or a safe shelter. As we become grateful for what we have, why not offer our prayers, money, love or kind words to those in need? We can spread these acts of kindness and it won’t hurt if we lend a supporting hand to these struggling souls. Adding on to that, supporting someone in need makes us forget our own troubles, moreover, helping us realize how small actually are our troubles.
At the end of the day we all are humans and humanity ties us all, particularly in difficult times. In addition to being grateful for having our family and friends whom we hold close, we need to have compassion for those who are suffering, as nothing but humanity.
