I have started watching a SitCom – Dharma and Greg. In one episode Dharma (a strangely spiritual women), does Random Act of Kindness. She gets into trouble as a Policeman fines her. Well, I shall write on the serial sometime later. I thought to take up this point of “Random Act of Kindness” in this blog. I have written on Can money buy Happiness? earlier, however here is another take. Though, upto an extent yes Money can buy you happiness, yet beyond that threshold “value of money” does not add any “value” to one’s happiness – point of diminishing returns.

People will be “tempted to find such person” on daily basis! Just watch the video and feel free to share it, like it and write your opinion on the comments box below.

It is my birthday today – 26th Sept. So instead of waiting till weekend (starting tomorrow), I thought that let me share this blog on my Birthday. Will you share some Random Act of Kindness with anyone? May be today? Not necessarily me [jokes apart]. Anyone who is in need.

Sharing money or food is alright in its own place but very often other things like just acknowledging the presence of someone with a smile or a nod can do a great deal to lift up the spirits of people who have little to cheer them up in their lives. Last night we had gone out to dinner at our club and while I was waiting for my son and daughter in law to send off some others, I saw a lady, obviously a sweeper/cleaner standing near where I was waiting. It was about 9.30 pm and I just smiled at her and she opened up with such gushing affection that it was incredible. She was in the second shift and was expected to work till 10.00 pm. She recognised me as the person in whose house her cousin worked! She was delighted to meet up with my son and daughter in law as well. Just that smile made her lose her inhibitions and to start talking with a member of the club which otherwise she would never ever get to do in her life time, unless to get shouted at for some small infringement!.

You are right uncleji. I totally agree with your point of view. Read – http://business2buddha.com/2013/06/15/just-do-it-ok-try-it/ I wonder if you have already.
I know what you are talking about in the example. It rarely happens that one goes to a club and smiles at a “weeper”! Largely people would try to get “connected” to the whose-who of that system. If the club was of Golfers – The CEOs, right? That is our shortsightedness.
Actually, that is what makes you special – no inhibition and I have always seen you cheerful, happy, funny and totally free of any entanglement (remember this? http://business2buddha.com/2014/01/12/entanglement-of-a-langot-undergarment/) and even the story of 99 (the novel I am waiting to read!) – http://business2buddha.com/2013/01/26/chinu-and-the-pebbles/ 🙂
