Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

And got a good deed done to me

On Tuesday I did a good deed, rescuing a little crowlet and getting her sent to Karuna, the animal NGO. I had given the guy Rs. 100 for expenses, and as a donation to Karuna.

To my utter pleasant surprise, the very next morning, in less than 24 hours I had received a receipt for the donation by courier. So my Rs. 100 did reach Karuna, and will be put to use for some poor animal after all. Even if the man had kept it for personal use (which I believed he would), I wouldn't have minded. such men, that will travel long distances and battle angry crows to save a little life are rare. But such men, as the one I met on Tuesday, are rarer still.

May his tribe multiply!
