Self Help

with 11 comments

En route to work, I pass by a temple. The other day a rider acrobatically released his grip to form a reverent Namaste. Thud! He crashed to the ground with a bleeding jaw and bruised palms.

As I saw him stand up, in my rear view mirror, I remembered – God helps those who help themselves.

    • I doubt touching your chin to the bottom of your neck, be it out of reverence/ impulse or pure habit does require one to take eyes off the road 😉

  2. it is such a common gesture that I feel most people do it out of an impulse, not because they remember God while passing by.

    And you really need to be careful while driving by any temple 🙂

    • Whether is it out of reverence or on an impulse, it still is stupid, I feel.

      Concentrating on the traffic / road is more pertinent 🙂
