Just a little over a week ago, I got a very encouraging message from a reader in India who also said he would send a story about honesty form his country. A few days later, he sent a summary of a story that was published in the newspaper called the THE HINDU Chennai Edition. He wrote the following:
“A woman, who was returning home after attending a wedding in Kerala left behind her bag in an paid autorikhaw on Tuesday morning. The bag contained goldjewels and silksarees worth Rs 3 lakhs (equivalent of $6,700).When her husband went to police station to lodge a report after a franctic search for the taxi, the driver himself honestly had returned home with the bag and gave the valuables intact to the woman simultaneously. On information police traced the honest driver and appreaciated him for his honesty and the woman paid him money as the reward.”
Many thanks to Surendranath R. for having sent in this story about honesty in India. Please share stories of honesty from your country. The world needs more stories about honesty and good deeds.
