It was a stadium, eight children were standing in their tracks for a race that was about to begin. Ready, steady, GO…

The race started, children ran with all their energies.
Just a few steps far, a girl tripped and fell. She was slightly injured, with minor bruises and she began to cry…
Seeing this, the other participants — all seven of them, came back. One of the seven consoled her, kissed her and held her had to pick her up. All seven joined in and carried the girl to the finish line.

The crowd, needless to say, was baffled. Few claps grew into thousands and the whole crowd was on their feet, many with tears in their eyes.

This, readers, is a true story that happened in an event held in Hyderabad for mentally challenged children – National Institute of Mental Health.
These children were all mentally challenged — we, the normal people would never do that – why? because we have brains.

I read this story in our office notice board — and I personally was quite moved by it.

How many times have I done that?
How many times have you done that?
How many times have we heard about something like this?
