A Random Act of Kindness!


This incident happened almost 6 years ago but it is still very much fresh in my memory bank.Ā  It might not be a big thing but for me it is one of those unforgettable moments.

It happened when we were coming back from our France trip. We were waiting for a connecting flight. I was staring outside the glass doors of waiting lounge. People were running/walking towards their destinations.

I was deep in my thoughts when I saw a guy. I wasn’t staring but unknowingly I was following his each and every move.

I guess he saw me looking at him and I am sure he would have thought that I was staring (which I was but unconsciously), so he waved at me. I don’t remember what I was thinking. I was so much engrossed in the thought process that even though I was looking at him but I dint notice his wave.

Now you must be wondering how do I know he was waving if I dint notice? Thats because even though I dint notice but subconsciously my mind acknowledged that. Anyway, he waved again and this time I saw he was smiling. He was standing on one of those walking escalators at airports. As soon as I came back to my senses I automatically waved back (hesitantly).

He was about to pass me any moment now and just before that, he did these …..

  • His first gesture was asking me to smile (with his thumb and middle finger at both sides of his lips)….
  • His second gesture was he kissed his first 2 fingers …
  • His third gesture was after kissing his fingers he waved a Peace sign at me..
  • Now I was not only waving back but I was smiling too. šŸ™‚

Whole thing took some 30-45 seconds but the incident got etched on my mind and heart (in detail). That is why I remember all the necessary details . I don’t remember how he looked like, how tall he was and what/how many bags he was carrying . But the couple of things that I rememberĀ  very clearly are his smile and his gesturesĀ  as they did leave an imprint.

Since that moment till date I have never met/seen anyone doing the same thing. But one thing that I learned was how to make some one smile once in a while.Ā  Whenever I see anyone with a very serious expression on his/her face, I use my hand to make them smile, just like the way that guy did. (if the moment and circumstances allow)

Mostly people smile back but once in a blue moon they don’t but I feel good that at least I tried.

I am thankful to thatĀ  RANDOM STRANGER who showed me how to do A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS.
