Kindness Talk with Vaishali on World Kindness Day

It was a casual conversation with Rumi Borah which got me aware about the World Kindness Day


So, let me start by understanding the word kindness , it means the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate.


Now, if I ask you how often are you kind to not only yourself but others, what would be your answer🤔🤔🤔


I hope that you have a positive answer to this question.

Another thing that I wonder, is that what is the whole reason for celebrating "World 🌍 Kindness Day".🤔🤔🤔


So l took to google to get this answer

"World Kindness Day is a global day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. The purpose of this day, celebrated on November 13 of each year, is to help everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together."


One can be kind by doing simple acts in daily life and it need not be something big.If you have a genuine intention of being kind and being compassionate, you will have all the ways to practise the same.


I believe a simple act of smiling is the biggest act of kindness and can do wonders.Another act of kindness would be when we give compliments or appreciate others from our ❤️.To be kind , all you need is a desire to make other person happy.


I practice kindness all the while and it's an absolutely amazing experience each time.The fact that l am able to make some one else happy by being kind is something that gives me an amazing sense of accomplishment and raises my happiness quotient.


If you are someone,who looks for facts before practising anything, let me give you a scientific basis for the same.Our body releases a chemical called dopamine when we make others happy.If you are kind to others, this chemical is released, so ultimately your own happiness quotient rises.

So, how about making it a habit?🤔😇🤔


I would like to end by sharing a beautiful story which was a post on linkedin by Harinder Singh and shared by Vinoth Kumar Devadoss


"Once an old man and a girl got into a bus for a long journey🙂🙂🙂.There was only one seat remaining in the bus


Old Man :l don't have a ticket

Girl:Neither do l have

Old Man : You may take the seat

Girl:No, Uncle , l am Young , you please go ahead and sit comfortably

Old Man : Thanks a lot🙏, hopefully the person who has booked the seat doesn't come

Girl: Let's hope( Smiling)

Old Man: ( After some time) Aren't you tired?

Girl: No Uncle

Old Man : How many more hours for your stop

Girl: Another 5 hours

Old Man : Oh, please tell me when you are tired l will get up

Girl:Sure uncle


As the journey was long most passengers were sleeping on their seats when the ticket collector came.


Ticketcollector: ( To the old man)Ticket please

Old Man: l don't have a ticket

Ticket collector :( To the Girl) Ticket please

Girl: Here( She quietly showed the ticket which was of the seat on which this old man was sitting since hours)

Ticket collectors: ( to the Girl) you are very kind

There is a seat in another compartment , you can sit there

Girl: Thankyou , sure


Then the girl picks up her crutches and starts walking which astonished everyone in the bus.


The story ends with the message

" The real kindness is when you are ready to give up something that you need yourself"


I loved every bit of this story and felt obliged to share it🙂🙏🙂
