I lost my wallet with all my important cards in it over the weekend, somewhere in the city. After hours of searching, checking various lost properties and police stations, no luck. This morning (Tuesday) when I went to get the mail, my wallet was in the letterbox, everything still there, with a note saying, ‘found in the city’. I called the number on the note, and turns out the man who found it drove all the way to my house to return it to me. It’s a little thing- returning a lost wallet, but it’s the proof that good people do exist that has restored my faith in humanity.

Yesterday me and my friends went to a medical store and saw an old man probably 70+ asking for price of some medicine the store guy said it will cost Rs. 170 ( $3.4 ) then he opened the folded handkerchief and started counting money. He had only Rs.67 ( $1.6 ) so he asked to give medicines which comes in that budget. My friend told him “kaka mai de deta hun uper ka paisa” ( Uncle let me pay the balance amount ) but still he refused and said “mere bete meri help nahi kar rahe jane do tum shikriya mujhe itna hi kafi hai” ( My own son doesn’t help me, your concern about me is enough ). And shopkeeper gave him medicine said “ye lo kaka itne dawayee ayengi isme”. ( Only this much medicine will come in the amount you gave me ) That old man might not realize but shopkeeper had already given all the medicine of Rs.170 ( $3.4 ) without him knowing.

A University of New Hampshire athlete is ending his career so he can donate bone marrow to a cancer patient he has never met.
“You can’t measure life against anything. When you have an opportunity to save someone, you gotta go for it,” said Cameron Lyle.
During his sophomore year, Lyle and many other UNH athletes had their mouths swabbed to join the bone marrow registry. Then a few months ago, as he was preparing to finish up his senior season of track, Lyle received a phone call from the National Marrow Donor program. He was a match for someone who desperately needed a donor.
“I said yes immediately. When they said I was a match, they said, “Would you like to proceed? I said absolutely. And then when I hung up the phone I said, “Well I guess athletics are over now,” Lyle said.
He is heading to Massachusetts General Hospital on Wednesday morning to begin the donor process.
“Basically they’re putting needles in my pelvis between one and two hundred times, taking all the bone marrow out. So I can’t lift more than 20 pounds for three to four weeks. It took the whole second half of the season out of play for the championships,” he said.
By law, Lyle and the recipient must remain anonymous to each other for at least one year. All he knows about the person receiving his marrow is that he is a 28-year-old man with leukemia. A man Lyle said he is so glad to help and hopes to meet one day.
“I really want to meet him. I hope he wants to meet me too,” Lyle said.
Right now the cancer patient to whom he is donating has been given six months to live.
The hope is that Lyle’s bone marrow donation could extend his life by at least two more years.
