Three homeless boys who made a living by begging and shining shoes on trains got out of three different compartments, met on the platform and started exchanging notes. One of them had earned 5 rupees, another had earned 2. And one had nothing. But he said something that I will never forget-

"Kal maine das rupay kamaya. Sabko khana khilaya."
"Yesterday, I earned 10 rupees. I bought food for everyone."

Who was more generous?

The boy who gave everything, when he had nothing.
Or the rich man who gave 85% of his wealth, but still had a few billion dollars left.
