Once, when I was travelling in metro, I had to witness a very unfortunate situation. It was a regular weekday and just like any other day, I took the metro back home after a tiring day at college. The metro passed through a tunnel causing the lights to go out. It took a while for the lights to come back on and the panic started spreading. There was a lot of pushing and shoving as people got restless. There was some announcement requesting people to calm down, but it was lost amidst the panic. And suddenly, there was a loud scream and from the sound of it, it was a little girl. Within no time, people reacted by switching on their phone flashlights and what came after shocked everyone. There was an old man lying still on the floor. When the girl was asked what had happened, she said that she felt someone tugging hardly at her dress. Soon, the news reached the metro driver and the emergency medical staff examined the old man. Apparently, he had a sudden heart attack and he was tugging for help but the darkness from the tunnel and the resulted panic has led to his helpless death.
It was a dull, slow day for Mrs. Madhu, who was alone in the house. It was an hour past noon and she had just finished her lunch. As part of her daily routine, she was enjoying her favourite serial on the TV. Suddenly, the doorbell rang, and Mrs. Madhu lazily rose from the couch to open the door. She was expecting a visit from one of her neighbour who usually comes around that time to watch the serial along with Mrs. Madhu. But to her surprise, it was a sadhu. Dressed in orange from head to toe, he looked drained and tired. The religious person that Mrs. Madhu is, invited him in excitedly. He had apparently come to visit an ashram nearby and was on his way back when he got lost. After hours of trying to figure out, he was drained and decided to ask help. Mrs. Madhu, filled with utmost sympathy for him, offered him food and even listened as he narrated the tale of his journey. Later, she showed his way back and was absolutely delighted to have catered to the needs of a sadhu.
