On 31st evening, we caught a cab from outside Bangalore International Airport to drop us home. We took more than a couple of hours in the traffic clogged streets, it being New Year’s eve. We were tired and exhausted with all the traveling and waited eagerly to reach home. We reached around 7 pm. Eagerly took all the luggage and got in. The driver was a lively, talkative man with Mega Cabs, a cab company in Bangalore. Flash forward to 8th January 2013!
We wanted to download a few pics taken during our vacation when we realized that our DSLR was missing. None of us could remember where it was and we quickly understood that it might have been left in the cab. The driver had given his card, and we did have the cab bill too. A call was placed to the driver, a man named Swamy, who immediately said that he had the camera in his possession. He had no clue who it belonged to since he only found it when one of the later passengers pointed it out to him. He had also informed his cab office about it.
To cut a long story short, we drove down to a place close to his home in North Bangalore last evening and got our DSLR back in its own bag with its accessories and our memory card with the pics untampered. I took his picture while thanking him intending to write about him and share his story.
A camera worth around 30K and many precious pictures was handed back to us more than a week after it had been left by mistake. If this is not amazing than what is. And, Swamy, thank you so much for your honesty and goodness. I hope Mega Cabs appreciates this employee of theirs who is a shining soul in these times of dishonesty and misconduct. Thank you Good Samaritan Swamy. Hopefully, we can still continue to believe in goodness in human beings!
