Just yesterday, while stopping at the traffic junction of BTM Layout, right in front of Udupi Gardens, I had to face a dilemma.
Outstretched palms of a small 4-year-kid with a hungry look on face was asking for help. Quickly my hands fumbled for that one rupee coin which would buy a small chocolate for the kid. Just when I thought I was about to do something great, my concience stopped me.
Long time back I had a great friend who would stop me from doing these charities and would chastise me saying “Mohan, dont give alms to kids, they stop going to school and hook on to this bad habit for life.”
The same thoughts minus my old friend on pillion played hide and seek in my mind.
So people, what do you think is the ideal answer? What would you do if faced with the above dilemma?
Of course the honkings on the green light made me take a start from that junction – nevertheless the question remains.
