Good Samaritan

Siva and Bhaarath

We were returning home from a meeting when we saw a couple, with a boy about 3 years old on a motorbike. The husband was pushing the bike and it was obvious that they ran out of petrol. They were on the other side of the road, and the next petrol station is a quite a distance away. My husband the good samaritan (and I mean this. I have yet to come across someone so genuinely selfless and helpful...regardless of gender, creed and race), made some turns, and twist and stopped to tell the man to wait at the side of the road so he could get to the nearest petrol station to get some petrol. The family looked a little anxious but they abided (probably due to my husband's towering height). So we went to the petrol station, found a bottle and filled it up with petrol and brought it to the family. They were so grateful. Arjoonha exclaimed, 'poor family, luckily we helped'! It was a good feeling indeed.
