Anil [U.P., India] Now at UAE

This guy makes and sells Samosas on his bicycle. As I was walking aimlessly, met this guy. In fact he stopped seeing someone walking with a camera, and wanted a picture taken. The picture was taken, conversations were exchanged. And we were about to leave. Then this guy stopped after a few meters and returned to give me a free samosa! I am getting lessons on kindness from totally unexpected places for sure.

Now the kind man is the Samosa seller.

  1. So Jithin .. .have you stopped the series with the Samosa Seller ? And what does the Anil .. etc now in UAE mean … that you maintained contact with him ?? Really ? Fill me in the blanks please … am curious.

    1. I kind of stopped many of my regular posts after the Dubai visit. Kind of got busy with other stuff. So with the samosa seller, it came to a temporary halt. Well I have talked a few people in the picture. Some wanted the picture back, so i had their contacts too. Do you want to know anything more?

      1. Oh man you are so funny … I asked because it is not usual – for me at least – to be in contact with a chance ‘acquaintance’ but you are very very much a people person. Way to go. Now restart your people series. 🙂

        1. haha. i’m not always a people person 😉 Im mostly reserved and when i get some impulsive outburst I go and make acquaintances and keep in touch with them 😉

          Thank you for the motivation, I will try to restart the series 🙂

  2. Your people and jobs is a gracious way to tell moving stories of ordinary people. I appreciate your effort. 🙂 Btw, my subs of your blog disappeared, so I’ll need to re-subs.

      1. I subscribed you blog sometime ago through my WP Reader, then it’s disappeared. Since I didn’t get the notices from Reader, so I thought you have not been putting posts. I then re-subs a couple of days ago, your new post still didn’t show up.
        This series is a well-thought one. it was hard for me to view, but I’m making myself to… I always believe that it takes kindness to recognize and accept kindness. 🙂

  3. Acts of kindness are mostly learnt from people with a generous means of life, the rest, well most of them who think they have money and hence are rich are actually the poor souls!
