7/11: An open heart says more than an open door

VIJAY M.R. writes from Bangalore: Just a couple of weeks ago, a survey done by Reader’s Digest that termed Mumbaikars the rudest people on earth was making news.

In the aftermath of the horrendous train blasts, one is seeing the real side of the megapolis. People helping each other, opening up their houses, sharing their food, donating blood.

If this doesn’t convince people that saying “Thank You” and holding the door open are not the only things that measure the quality of people, then nothing else will.

As a Bangalorean, I am proud that I am a fellow countryman of Mumbaikars. What spirit!
