There was a poor boy who made a living with selling various objects door to door, to pay for his school. He was very hungry and felt he couldn’t walk even a few steps. He decided to ask for food at a house. He knocked the door and was stunned to see a beautiful young girl at the door step. With some hesitation he asked the girl to offer a glass of water since he felt awkward asking for food from the beautiful strange girl.
The young girl understood his hunger through his eyes and offered him milk in a huge glass. The boy was surprised but joyful. He eagerly gulped the milk down. He then asked how much he owed her for the milk, even though they both knew that he had no money to give her. With a gracious smile on her face, the girl replied, “I don’t accept anything for kindness.” With big smile on his face, the boy thanked the girl from the bottom of his heart and left the place.
Years passed by. The young girl grew old and settled down, had family and was living quite happily. One day, she fell ill and was diagnosed with the rarest kind of nervous condition, which was a complicated condition to treat. While many experienced doctors were baffled at her condition, she was taken to a big hospital to study her condition and to get some treatment. Dr. Kumar, a renowned specialist was called in by the hospital to examine her. He gave a visit to the hospital where she was admitted to learn about the rare condition. As he entered her room, Dr. Kumar immediately identified who that woman was. He never forgot the face of the young girl who saved him from hunger one afternoon by giving him milk.
With all his efforts and knowledge, Dr. Kumar battled with the disease for weeks and months. At last, he won over the disease and the woman was completely cured. Everyone praised the doctor, while the woman and her family were quite anxious about the hospital bill as they could not afford to pay.
Dr. Kumar asked the hospital to send the bill to him so that he could add his charges. After receiving the hospital bill, he wrote a note on it and sent it to her. With lots of apprehension, she opened the bill while her family looked on with concern.
Her eyes filled with tears and happiness once she opened the bill. The bill was already paid for.
The small note said, “Bill Paid years ago with a glass of milk!”
