I heard a sweet know at my door as I was busy finishing writing an article. What I saw was truly amazing, a girl ten to twelve years old was standing there. She was giving me a nice and pleasant smile, beaming from ear to ear. She was a thin framed child wearing a knee length dress and bare feet. There was uncanny yet friendly expression on her face which made me all the more curious about her. I asked her what does she wants? She did not ask anything but from her frail figure I could see the expression of satisfaction on her face that elated my heart immensely.

In some corner of my heart, I was feeling good after rendering a helping hand to one of the victim of the gravest natural calamity which was of recent happening and has rendered many people homeless. Many of them have just been washed away after the cloud burst in the torrential rain. Those alive have been brought to the streets to fend for themselves. I was also thanking god for selecting my door for that sweet and gently knock.
