This elderly man offers free water to anyone who is thirsty on local trains of Mumbai. He has been doing it for many years without any compulsion or wanting anything in return, a pure act of SELFLESS SEWA.
He is 70 years old and at this age he still carries 5-6 two litter bottles (13kg/27lbs +) filled with cold water on his shoulder.
Kewal Haria, who spotted this guy and shared his story talked to him out of curiosity to see what was he doing and WHY. After asking a few questions it came to be that he does not want anything in return, did not share that for how long he has been doing it. All he said was : He does this every day, he is an educated English speaking man and he thinks and believe that he is just being HUMAN and serving others as much as he can and “yeh sab mein thoda kar raha hoon – yeh to uppar wale ki dua se ho raha hai” (I am not doing on my own, but I am just a medium of God’s will.)
So, next time when you ride a local train in Mumbai and hear “PANIWALA MUFAT KA PANI THANDA PANI LELO” then please THANKS this man for his service and for him being HUMAN!
We also want to thank Kewal Haria for noticing this man and sharing his story!!
