Honesty rules!

I had lost my wallet in an auto last week just prior to Diwali. I had two cards and a bit of money in that wallet. I grieved over it for a day. But then I decided to go ahead and blocked my cards. All this time, my heart hoped that someone would find my wallet and return it to me. After 4 days of losing my wallet, one day I got this mail in my inbox. The mail was from this person whose mother had got my wallet in the auto. He had asked me about the address where he had to return the wallet. I could not believe it! I really could not believe my luck! Next day, I met this unknown pal of mine, thanked him and took my wallet back. I told him that it was a very nice gesture. I also thanked him for the efforts he had made to contact me. Thank God for the honest people and good samaritans. Thank God for all these people who make the world a better place to live.:-)

Wow! This is truely amazing. One of very few cases of people going outta their way to help others. You are a lucky gal, Madhoo(o)!
The dude that sent your purse back deserves to be felicitated. In a time where one has to be near paranoid of others, our man has revived my dying trust in human beings. Bravo!
A good deed to do during Diwali. If Laxmi is watching, may she reward him! Amen! :-)
Happy Diwali...

This is one of those honest stories I have heard as a Bangalorean. Previous success story was a guy had left some valueables, left open on his bike. After around 8hours he returned back and found those lying right there were he left them. He was so very surprised & Happy that he Setup his dream music recording company in Bangalore, as a gesture to our gratitude.
