How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry. I will expl

A chapter of happiness in one's life

Happiness is something that can't be measured in numbers; it can only be felt. It is the moments of happiness that reminds us of the good things that happened to us and last forever. A couple of days ago, I asked my cronies and my kindred to tell me about a moment when they helped someone or when they felt happy. Although, I have received a bunch of replies yet I can't mention all of them here. I have only quoted a few here, including myself, which are voiced below. 

I (A Computer Science Engineer and a Writer)

One day I was standing at my door and a dog came running toward me. She was hungry I guess. I went inside immediately, opened the refrigerator, and fetched some bread crumbs for her. It was so good to see her waiting hand and foot on me. Although she saw me going inside yet she didn’t go away until she had her fill. Once she was fed, she started dancing around me. It was, maybe her way of thanking me. For a moment, it felt like there was no end to her merriment. It was one of the chapters in my life when I felt happy. 

Abhisar Gautam(A Good Friend and an employee at Dr. Phone Fix, Kelowna, British Columbia)

One fine day when he was on his way to his institute he came across an old lady who was standing on one side of the road. She was wondering if someone could drop her at her destination so he stopped in the middle of the road to help her and asked the old lady to board his car. She looked ill and fragile at first glance. On the way to her destination, she said, “I am a masseuse and I am headed to a lady’s house for providing my services.” She looked a bit peaky and was not in good shape. Upon being asked about her urgency to go there, she replied, “I am very poor, and to make both ends meet I have to go there.” He felt really bad for her. He really wanted to do something for her. In the meantime, she reached her destination and when she was egressing the vehicle, he called her and reached out to his pocket and took out his wallet, and gave her whatever he had in his wallet. She stood there for a while and looked completely nonplussed. She didn’t know how to react. For a moment she felt on top of the world. Tears in her eyes were clearly evident of the emotions stirring up inside of her. She gave him so many blessings that it left him astounded for a while. He realized how little things like these can put a smile on someone’s face. Finally, he insisted the lady to go home and look after her health so she could recover and get back to her work as soon as possible. He asked her if he could drop her at her place. She told him that she would go on her own and said,” You have already helped me a lot and I am glad that people like you still exist in the world.” He again insisted the lady board his car. He asked her so politely that she couldn’t say no this time and finally, he dropped her at her place. And when I asked Abhisar what made him help her, he replied, “If your little effort broadens someone’s smile, you shouldn’t be humming and hawing over helping someone. Moreover, if you make someone happy, it will, in turn, make you happy as well."

Palak Jyoti(A Sister and a Biotechnologist):

She is a biotechnologist by profession and an environmentalist by nature. Every year on her birthday she brings home new plants and contributes to the environment. Although there are alternatives to plants such as air purifiers yet she invests only in plants as she thinks that technology doesn't come in handy every time as natural processes/things do. Also, she says that plants are a symbol of positivity and prosperity, and without them, it's hard to imagine and picture her life. She has two daughters and both have inherited her qualities. Every year on Environment day she tells her daughters to make posters to make people aware of the importance of plants. I think that's enough for the introduction part. Like everybody I asked my sister as well to tell me a moment when she helped someone or when she felt happy and I received an interesting message, just the way I expected.
