Help folks help!!!

I was just going in an auto this morning and suddenly the traffic slowed down inspite of a green(rare commodity in Blore!it takes 3 surges to see green from closer quarters)..and then saw 3 layers in front- a solitary lady pushing the omni..I just jumped out from the auto (as the driver was screaming, yenu illa bidee sir)and gave a hand, meanwhile one more soul pitched in..and in a few secs the car started and they pushed off..The other person who pitched in glanced at me and gave a smile as we rushed to our respective gaadis..Did u get it?? That smile was an acknowledgement of the simple happiness one derives on pitching in "at the hour, neigh,second of need" with out invitation and just dusting off the hands and moving once u did what u wanted..a small sense of proud satisfaction and it ends there..
Why am I mentioning it here? am I bragging..NO!!! am just saying. it was pathetic to watch a solitary person ( more so here, a lady;to hell with all equality gimmicks..its tuff to push alone, period) and behaving like nothing is happening around u..
Man!! what a senseless and insensitive society we are evolving into..
Let me mention what i said to my auto driver: It could be your wife today or your mother tomorrow (hmm and my mom cant push a chair)..SO BETTER MOVE YOUR REAR END SON!! (btw this caps part sounds great in kannada) and am sure he too got it!! Did you??
just help folks, help!! anywhere, everywhere!!
