I met with an accident almost 3 months back and after one surgery I am still hobbling on crutches. It hasnâ€™t been easy, and it is not going to be easy for the next few months. However, I have been able to see how helpful people can be when they find that someone needs help.
Friends accompany me when I go on a break, even when I insist that I can take care of myself. People open doors for me and Shibu, the tea vendor at office cafeteria comes up to me to make sure that I have everything I need. Strangers strike up conversation when they find me sitting alone. People likes to talk, you just need to give them something to talk about. Yesterday when I fell down, about half a dozen people appeared at my side in an instant to get me back on my feet. Everyone likes to help when they see you need help.
Unfortunately, we humans are not blessed with the ability to see when a person needs help emotionally, except for those few women with their womenâ€™s intuition. Scientists should try to recreate it in all human beings. I am sure that would solve most of the worldâ€™s problems.
