Such People Still Exist….

It was peak rush hour in the morning. I was walking along the road when I saw all traffic come to a standstill on a busy road. I was wondering as to why is the traffic still when there is no signal at that junction at all. On coming closer towards the junction, what do I see? A traffic policeman is holding the hand of an old lady and helping her cross the road. Wow, I thought. So there is still some humanity left in people. I appreciate the traffic policeman for this, it is not something which we get to see daily.

I know many people will say why to stop the traffic and get so many people late for work at the cost of one person crossing the road. But wait, it takes hardly 30 secs to cross an empty road and if an old lady is taking just 30 secs of your time, whats wrong in it? When we can afford to waste time on petty activities, why not spare 30 secs in helping someone out.

I hope to come across more PEOPLE such as the traffic policeman. This episode made my day today, I must say.

it is so refreshing to read about this. most times, when ppl tend to blog about "traffic", it is full of vexation. nice to see this one saying something different.
