Like all other days at work, I was planning to leave office, but the weather showed a sudden change and it started drizzling. So I asked my colleague to lend me an umbrella as she lived nearby. She got an umbrella for me from her home. Having reached the bus stop I was unable to close the umbrella. So I asked a shopkeeper there to help me, he closed the umbrella for me. He offered me his umbrella as he said that I would not be able to open it when in need. I thanked him and took the umbrella even though the rain had stopped. As I was reaching my destination, suddenly it started raining heavily. A student got down from the bus ahead of me. Having noticed that she doesn’t have an umbrella, I rushed to her and we both shared the umbrella on our way home. In the end, I followed a different route home to drop her at her house. I felt happy and grateful for all the kindness being showered from all sides.
