In today's times where selfishness overpowers humanity, there is a very heartwarming gesture that has come to light.
In this story shared on Twitter by Parth Sierra aka darthsierra, he narrates his experience with a Mumbai based Ola cab driver.
He shared his encounter with the driver over a Twitter thread. He wrote,
Hey Ola cabs I need to report an incident I faced with one of your driver by the name Asif Iqbal Abdul Gaffar Pathan. He drives a mini Hyundai Xcent.

Where at the start of the thread it might look like there is going to be yet another complaint about the cab driver, his thread took a surprising turn.
Me & my wife booked a cab from our residence to Hiranandani Powai on 10th June 2019 in the evening. We were headed to a pub to bring in my birthday. It started raining quite heavily on our way there.— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
He struck a conversation with Parth and talked about various things, ranging from rains to traffic.
And we overheard him talking to his wife telling her to not let the kids out in the rain. We also chatted a bit about how 1st rains are bad for bikes & that people should ride safely. Patiently negotiating with traffic we reached our destination— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
We thanked him & proceeded to meet our friends. About an hr into the evening I realised I don't have my wallet. I freaked out & thought maybe I dropped it while getting out of the cab so went looking. Then called him to check— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
But when Parth realized he doesn't have his wallet, the cab driver's assurance made him sigh with relief.
He immediately mentioned he has it safely with him & will had it to me on his way back home. And around 12:30 am on the 11th June 2019 he arrived. I was like cool my birthday isn't ruined considering all the hassle of reporting lost cards, licence, pan card & stuff— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
But this part of the incident when the cab driver actually came over to give back the wallet, took our hearts away.
But the biggest surprise was what I got to know when he arrived to hand over my wallet. He gave it to me & wished me happy birthday. I thanked him & the he told me it's his birthday as well!!! CAN YOU IMAGINE THE COINCIDENCE!!!— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
This modest cab driver is not only a hard worker but also a loving family man.
He then told me his family is waiting for him at home to cut a cake. What a day it was!!— PAPA SIERRA (@darthsierra) June 12, 2019
Here is a smiley picture of this good Samaritan at the end of a hard day at work & a loving family man! These are the people who make Bombay what it is! pic.twitter.com/zxNKHJQP2J
While everyone is fighting the evil of the modern world, this incident restored our faith in kindness.
