Mr Faith " I will get my purse back, no worry "

The man with Faith

  It is 0700 hours in KOLKATA and I am at a tea shop, the street side small vendors shop where tea is still available for a mere10 rs.per cup. As I enter, I spy a purse on the bench, possibly the person before me has left it behind, and I hand it over to the shop owner, mentioning where I found the purse.

It was another 20 minutes before an elderly gentleman, maybe in his mid 60’s came along and asked for his purse, and on receiving it ,  seemed like he knew he would get the purse back, and was not worried about it.

Loved how much belief he had in humanity, that he would indeed get the purse back. He enjoyed another cup of tea before he went on his  way.
Another example of humanity and his trust and faith in fellow humans.

Ronny D'costa and The newspaper guys

Early morning 0500 hours, its time for a quick workout before another long days ride. Ronny, my co-traveller is out on a walk and 30 minutes into the walk / jog he sees a newspaper vendor..looking to stay connected with the world.. while other riders laze.. Riders usually work on their own time schedule, and he knew the others would take their own sweet time to get ready. He decided to buy a few news papers and the bill is Rs 18. It’s the outskirts of Hyderabad, and the newspaper vendor has no money on him, Ronny too has only 10 rupees and a Rs 100 bill.
The vendor offers to let Ronny have the newspaper, and is willing to trust that Ronny will pay up the next day - the balance of Rs 8.
Ronny informs the vendor, that he might not be around the next day, but the newspaper vendor lets him have the paper anyway saying, “ OK pay me next time you are here “

Was the vendor just nice and positive or foolish?

I love guys like these who will help folks because they can and money alone does not move them, way to go Newspaper guy!
