there are a number of occasions came in my life when I got an opportunity to meet the strangers and it gave me chance to help someone who really needs it. I have helped many persons at different times and in different situations, but today I would like to talk about a situation when I was travelling from Delhi to Canada via Singapore by boarding the air flight of Cathay Pacific.
I was going back to Canada from India after spending two months with my parents who are residing there. By chance, the seat next to me occupied by an old person who was also coming from India. because he also belongs to Punjab, so I started the conversation with him, he told me about the purpose of his visit. we talked for long hours and when he told me that he belonged to the district Moga like me and I feel affection towards him.
he has a problem to converse with the air hostess when the cabin crew staff was serving the eatables because he did not speak well in English. so, I helped him as a translator between him and staff. it makes ease for him. After a long journey, the flight landed at the international airport Toronto. furthermore, I also helped him at the immigration counter and at the baggage claim counter. he was near about 65 years old and was unable to carry his luggage so, I arranged a trolly for him. I helped him to fill the custom and immigration forms.
when we came out of the airport his family came to receive him . he introduced me to them and all thanked me. we also exchanged our phone numbers and I felt very calm and satisfied after helping an old and needy person.
