Are we being human ?

"Pay the fine and take the receipt, else you have to accompany us to the nearest police station”, a harsh voice by the ticket inspector, got me goose-bumps.

Pity, these words were for the girl sharing the seat beside me in a government public transport bus. she tore her purse open in despair, only to find it had less money. Embarrassed and upset, tears rolled down her cheeks.
She did not have the total amount to be paid as fine. As a courtesy towards humanity, I helped her with a part of the fine.

My joy knew no bounds, just because I had helped a person in need.

When was the last time you helped a needy ? In today's busy lives, are we being human ?
