So, here I was in a fancy restaurant, waiting for my Cheese paper paneer dosa that I just ordered when I noticed a humble old man who was employed as a waiter in that restaurant. He looked like an old man who if was employed in a government job would be just months away from his retirement. I could not possibly comprehend how a man like him ended up in a place like this, doing a work like this. He was walking with a limp, he seemed to be in pain. Pain from his leg or his life, i wondered.
Now, at the same restaurant, in a far corner were seated three men, wrapped around in formal shirts, pants along with ties and clean polished shoes. Definitely seemed to be employed in some good companies, definitely living a good live, definitely from a good family.
The old man was given the responsibility of that table. So, when the food was ready he came in with the food and placed it in the table in front of them. Being the humble man he was, he even started serving the food to the three gentleman sitting there. Forget about being respectful and asking the old man to stop serving them(which they could have done it by themselves, of course), they didn’t even bother looking at him or even stop whatever nonsense they were blabbering and thanking him. I felt disgusted. I could do nothing but observe.
So, in hopes that this experience of mine will change even a single GENTLEMAN out there, I’m sharing this.
Remember how your grandparents used to treat you when you were kids. We too should show the love and respect that they deserve.
