{December 25, 2009}   Doing good without any thought

So the other day, I was at this bakery thing, and the girl next to me in line was checking out all the kinds of sandwiches there were. Seeing undecidedness on her face, I suggested the sandwich I liked the best (not that I had tried any other yet, but I always picked this one whenever I go to this bakery). She was a total stranger but it felt so refreshing and nice to do what I’m used to doing – helping out others and connecting with complete strangers for fleeting moments.

I think it stems from my belief that everyone, no matter how different they try to be from “the rest”, are somehow or the other connected to each other no matter how much they loathe the other person. For example, the users of the same brand of shampoo or toothpaste or makeup brand or those who go to the same outlet to go shopping for clothes….nobody’s better than anyone else, nobody is superior than others, because at some basic level, we’re all the same.

have you ever noticed how several of us come up with the same ideas at or around the same time? for example, the smiley :’) – I came up with it when i wanted to describe “khushi k aansoo” and it’s been quite a while. At around the same time, a friend of mine understood exactly what i meant. the same thing happened with 2-3 more friends: they did not ask me what it meant but totally understood. and now i see some facebook group using this smiley in its name.
i wanted to write this as another post but this thing could well be an example of how total strangers still connect.

what say you?
