Compassion - Yashraj Sharma


"The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing
in prayer." ― Mahatma Gandhi.

What is compassion? Well, in my opinion, compassion is every action in which you show
kindness and bring a smile to someone's face. It is an abstract action.

Even the most minor acts like opening the car door for someone is compassion. If we want to
show our compassion; it doesn't mean small acts aren't counted as one!

Let me tell you about one of my small experiences; playing in our society park, a
small girl, about 5 years old, fell down while playing. I ran to her, helped her up, and saw that
she was crying. I gave her water from my bottle and called her parents because she called
out to them. They came and thanked me. I felt terrific by helping her.

I hope I was able to help you imbibe in you that the quality of compassion isn't all about always
doing something big to show our kindness.
