A good deed is the one with intention, not for attention for he who plants kindness gathers love. It's the small actions that make all the difference in our daily lives and the people we become. Sometimes we come across stories from around the world depicting how strangers can come to the rescue in the most unexpected ways. Other times we are fortunate enough to experience it first-hand.
In a heart-warming display of such compassion, a Srinagar-based auto driver helped a woman who accidentally forgot her phone in the vehicle. Extending a helping hand to the woman passenger, the man took the effort to travel all the way to hand over the mobile phone safely to her. Neeta Sharma, a journalist, shared a post on Twitter on March 22 saying that the Srinagar auto driver who is widely known as Javed Bhai was in the Brein area when she called from another number to place her phone. Neeta was pleasantly surprised by how the good samaritan made an effort to return the phone to her.
In a world where people hardly return a phone, wallet or any other expensive or precious belonging, Javed Bhai’s action surely serves as an affirmation to humanity, manifesting its existence in the modern-day.
The post was shared along with pictures of the auto driver. See here:

Recently, army troops at Karalpura in Kupwara earned plaudits for helping a pregnant woman reach hospital in time for the delivery amid heavy snowfall. The Army personnel carried the woman for about two km in knee-deep snow on a berth before she could be driven to a hospital.
