Compassion - Anvesha Rana

A simple act of kindness can touch million hearts, a simple act of kindness can help people in need and a simple act of kindness can change the world. What we do today, defines who we are tomorrow. Compassion is not a feeling it is an act of kindness, one that forever resides in the heart of those helped. We may ponder upon the fact that is it hard to be compassionate? No, all of us are humane and somewhere in our heart deep down, we do feel empathy but the row to hoe is the effort and the strain in helping someone else. It's just one more mile to go, it's just one more step to take and to make it to the line without a mistake. It's no doubt that kindness also fills the giver with a sense of content yet those who cross the finish line are few. 

Mother Teresa and Princess Diana, the two profounding pillars of compassion, have proven it to the world that it does not take superhuman effort to offer someone pleasure. Mother Teresa was a woman who changed thousands of lives and affected millions by her simply gestures of kindness whereas, Princess Diana had been an inspiration for huge masses of people, her message that AIDS did not spread through touch had been accepted worldwide. 

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Even children have demonstrated acts that could offer a change of heart, a young girl without thinking twice sharing her lunch with her friend or a child getting head shaven just to ensure that her friend with cancer is not uncomfortable in school. These are the actions in our daily life, these are the actions that change the world. 

You don't have to extraordinary to make a difference, but you can become extraordinary by making a difference...
