What Stops Us From Helping Others?

Nine Children were standing on the track to participate in a running event.

* Ready! * Steady! * Bang !!!

With the sound of Toy pistol, All Nine girls started running.

Hardly had they covered ten to fifteen steps, when one of the smaller girls slipped and fell down, due to bruises and pain she started crying.

When the other Eight girls heard the little girl cry they stopped running, stood for a while and turned back…

Seeing the girl on the track they all ran to help.

One among them bent down, picked her up and kissed her gently and enquired as to how she was.

They then lifted the fallen girl pacifying her.

Two of them held her firmly while all eight joined hands together and walked together towards the winning post…

There was pin drop silence at the spectator’s stand.

Officials were shocked.

Slow claps multiplied to thousands as the spectators stood up in appreciation.

Many eyes were filled with tears


YES. This happened in Hyderabad [INDIA], recently!

The sport was conducted by National Institute of Mental Health.


All these special girls had come to participate in this event they were spastic children.

Yes, they were Mentally Challenged..


What did they teach the WORLD?



Equality among all??


We can’t do this, is it because we have brains??

    The question is that, what did they teach the world?
    1. Teamwork
    2. Humanity
    3. Equality among all

    Well, I would say “None of the Above”

    Those little precious angels taught the world that people out there with the brains need to reconsider on their own mental health. Because, things happening in the outer world does not denominate the purity of a caring and loving mentality. People out there including myself and many of the readers and writers on this blog does not comply and can never be competent to the purity of the mental health of those little 8 girls.

    Whether it’s a true story or fake; if it gives us an opportunity to look deep into our heart resulting a couple of tears in our eyes, I would love to take this opportunity to stabilize the mental disorder under the current circumstances.

    May the Almighty Allah give us the strength to look within ourselves in order to make possible corrections. Wallah, if this happens almost all the cruelty will be killed from within our soul by our own self. Please everyone say Aameen…

    WoW! So unbelievable! In Hyderabad, India! In India!!!!

    There is still some goodness left in all of us!

    And no matter our shortcomings, there is some greatness and goodness around in all of us.

    Perhaps only Spastic Children could think of this as a “Team Event” and care for all!

    May Allah bless them all! Aa-meen.

    Looks like fake, but the story is nice anyway.

    In these days of corporate competition, the human factor is left waaaay behind profits and shareholders’s needs. And the governments approve this madness.

    Maybe we can change this, by starting on the tiniest level.

    PS : on the ppl sayin’ “never heard this story in the media”, remember – for the media, the good news are the bad ones : unemployment, poverty, wars, horrors, blended with a good dose of cheap (and often vulgar) entertainment.

    Mashaa ALLAH, i am really moved to tears reading this story… my heart jumped out of me and just wanted to scream and tell our dear brothers and sisters all over the world wake up and put hand in hand and help our children in Palastine who are being killed every single day by the zayonistS who are the true terrorits. Muslims should clean the dust over their showlders and get united again

    I’m from Hyderabad, and YES, I can tell you perhaps its in the water of Hyderabad that ppl are very warm and empathetic over there. Do I feel proud ? Damn, Yeah ! I’ve been in a different country since a while and find it very difficult with the cold attitude here. I’ve seen ppl (so-called friends) asking for money for trivial helps like bringing fuel while I’m stranded on a highway :-0
    I have nothing less than pity for the materialistic culture that have evolved, infact, this is not evolution its damn devolution.
