Flea Market -2

In the hustle of our daily life,we meet so many people. We see so many faces,faces that we don’t know or may never see again. But they leave a mark on our minds,an image that stays imprinted forever.
Today’s star in the Flea Market is The Kind Stranger.
First,let us be clear about the definition of the stranger here. He or she is a person whom you have never met or likely to meet again. You have no idea of his caste,creed or social status. He is a microcosm of humanity in the vast diaspora.
This Kind Stranger would tell you the right way when you are lost in the big city. This person may tell you the right bus or train to board when you don’t know about it. This person may walk  behind you  on a lonely street to endure that you are safe.
And during lockdowns, this kind soul may ask you if need anything from the grocery!
And when you sit alone in the hospital,this kind stranger may look after you and console you.
This kind person may just give you a nod as you stare vacantly into the open seas to tell it is fine.
The kind stranger does not demand anything in return. The small selfless deeds go a long way in boosting the faith in humanity. It shows that all is not lost. We still have threads of compassion running in our souls.  Small doses  of human care and empathy can go a long way in making this world a better place to live in.
We certainly need more of Kind Strangers  in the tough times that we live in!

  1. “Small doses of human care and empathy can go a long way in making this world a better place to live in.” So true indeed! A random act of kindness can go a long way indeed, especially when it’s done expecting nothing in return. It makes us belief that there’s still a hope for a better world. Great post!
