Outburst : Being Photographer or Human?

drinking drainage

People we talk a lot about humanity in terms to relate war crimes, murders, bomb blasts,.. But this picture made my heart feel heavy with some worry and pain which I cannot explain.

Here is the flashback how I got this image, it was shared on Facebook from a page asking the readers to think “Where goes humanity? I have seen this lady drinking dirty drainage and I found myself in a state of impotency to see her drinking drainage. Where gone the humanity? People are drinking mineral water blah blah… ” Says the Photographer (In fact just a snapshot and the guy is no photographer itself) and the page admin posted it with so pride to save humanity!!!

I literally blasted the photographer there on their page for taking this snap and had tried not to stop her drinking it and could have got her a water packet (Rs.2) at least, if that idiot could not afford a water bottle for Rs. 15 / 20.  Instead he snapped this picture, letting her drink it and telling us the story “See what I captured”

I do not know about others, If I were there, I could have done anything to stop her drinking it. Even if she is insane I would not have minded to slap her to stop it or get slapped by her to stop it. But I would have stopped her by any means, whatever it takes. It would have been an worst sight in my life and my hands would not go for the camera but to stop her and to get her some water and then I may would write what I had witnessed and how it was stopped. I could have better questioned my fellow being -“humans”. “As I have seen one human doing it I was able to do it, but there may be many doing it out of poverty somewhere we cannot see. How we gonna stop them?” I would have done it for sure, unlike the idiots who use social media, as so “socially irresponsible media” 

Humanity is not in rallying protests or hunger strikes. Humanity is not in Crying or feeling watching a movie. Humanity is not in writing and blogging. My father quotes someone’s saying to me always “You do not need to do great deeds, just help a poor who lives near by you, you will get all the blessings of 100 prayers” 

If you feel this has something to think, please think and do not miss to act. Always be ready for one act of kindness. The moment come any time. If it not comes we should seek for the moment. Because the number of people who care selfless are getting reduced. If you have a good soul, please make it worthy to help others, not everyone are blessed with a beautiful soul like yours. God bless all.

Random Act of Kindness: True Story of Bill

A true story from John W. Schlatter. We always say a random act of kindness can be meant a lot to others and make them view their life totally new and positive. Here we share one more beautiful story proving the same moral

2friendsMark was walking home from school one day when he noticed the boy ahead of him had tripped and dropped all of the books he was carrying, along with two sweaters, a baseball bat, a glove and a small tape recorder.

Mark knelt down and helped the boy pick up the scattered articles. Since they were going the same way, he helped to carry part of the burden. As they walked Mark discovered the boy’s name was Bill, that he loved video games, baseball and history, and that he was having lots of trouble with his other subjects and that he had just broken up with his girlfriend.

They arrived at Bill’s home first and Mark was invited in for a Coke and to watch some television. The afternoon passed pleasantly with a few laughs and some shared small talk, then Mark went home.

They continued to see each other around school, had lunch together once or twice, then both graduated from junior high school. They ended up in the same high school where they had brief contacts over the years. Finally the long awaited senior year came and three weeks before graduation, Bill asked Mark if they could talk.

Bill reminded him of the day years ago when they had first met. “Did you ever wonder why I was carrying so many things home that day?” asked Bill.

“You see, I cleaned out my locker because I didn’t want to leave a mess for anyone else. I had stored away some of my mothers sleeping pills and I was going home to commit suicide. But after we spent some time together talking and laughing, I realized that if I had killed myself, I would have missed that time and so many others that might follow. So you see, Mark, when you picked up those books that day, you did a lot more, you saved my life.”

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said….. “Then I thank you from my heart.”

a-glass-of-milk-paid-in-fullAs he left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly ! was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won.

Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words…..
