The Right Place at the Right Time

by duncanr

A group of boys were playing on a street – in Pusad in Maharashtra, India – when their kite got stuck on the third floor balcony of a building. Swapnil Zagre, 11, went up the building and managed to free the kite, which fell to the ground.

His friend Amol, also 11, who was on the ground, rushed to pick up the kite and bent over. At that exact same moment Swapnil fell from the third floor and landed on Amol, breaking his fall and saving his life

[neither boy was seriously hurt]

Sikh Langar

by duncanr

I have several times enjoyed the free vegetarian meal provided to visitors, regardless of faith (or lack of), when invited to a local gurdwara by some Sikh friends, and often wondered how the kitchen manages to produce so much food for so many folk, so I was fascinated to watch this video and see how it’s done in this Delhi gurdwara . . .
