a glass of milkOne day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one 25 paise coin in pocket, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

Instead of a meal he asked for a glass of water. She found he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, How much do I pay you? I have only a 25 paise coin.

You don’t pay me anything, she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”

He said….. “Then I thank you from my heart.” Lady asked his name.I am Ravi he said. As Ravi left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man became stronger. He decided not to quit studies inspite of hardships.

Many year’s later that same young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled! They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Ravi Manchanda was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case..

After a long struggle, the battle was won.

Dr. Manchanda requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it . Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words…..

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”
(Signed) Dr. Ravi Manchanda.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts and hands.”

The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place – And, after all, isn’t that what life is all about?
