India vs Bharath!

I was in hyderabad last week for a series of meeting and was in the outskirts. It was a beautiful campus with lotsa greenery. One was always tempted to go for an early morning walk and yes, Hyd was pleasant, surprisingly! As always one would try and find a chai shop for the shubh aarambh. so did I right outside the campus on the road oriya lady running it! I with my tootie frootie hindi conveyed to her that i wud need a black tea without sugar (ofcourse with out milk) and light! she smiled and made it for me with all patience..what in the morning, another vessel and all new efforts for 1 cup..
and then she did give me a good one and i was happy..
so when i asked her what was the cost, she smiled again..i said what? and she said, what money? go..what do i charge for water? ok, hot water at that!
i had to force the payment..
But see the attitude..early morning, extra efforts and no expectation!
Thats the real Bharath- working with the heart!
In India - ur developed urban that is, they would have asked for 25/- atleast without batting an eye, i dont want free lunch, still!
and this is not the 1st has happened twice before..once in some remoe village in TN and another in karnataka..
thats the difference!
India vs bharath that is ladies and Gmen!
