World is going through some really tough and depressing times, yet some people and stories lighten up the day and makes us believe humanity is supreme. Acts of kindness and warmth in various forms and phases are being witnessed across India and here is one such story from Lucknow railway station.
An 80-year old coolie at named Mujibullah Rehman has been doing his bit to help migrant workers by carrying their luggage for free. His gesture has surely won many hearts across social media.
As the announcement is made at Lucknow’s Charbagh railway station about the arrival of ‘shramik special’ trains carrying migrant workers, Mujibullah goes an extra mile to help the poor migrant workers.
A coolie at the station for the past 50 years, Mujjibullah displays his badge no. 16. Once the train arrives, he would run to them and offer to carry the luggage to the bus stand outside the platform. Mujjibullah would say if the passenger asked him about the charges, he said:
I have to answer to the Almighty also. What I am doing is nothing if compared to the problems faced by the poor migrant workers…they have no money…we must help them in whatever way we can.
Even at his age, Mujibullah has been working 8-10 hours every day and can carry 50 kgs of weight. Calling it ‘khidmat’ (service), he says he helps migrant workers with their luggage free of cost. He says this is his duty and this duty is very ‘important’.
Besides this, Mujibullah is also helping by providing food and water to the passengers on trains. He believes he can earn money once things get better but for now he’s volunteering to help. Mujibullah virtually runs towards the train with a trolley filled with bananas, water bottles and some other eatables.
