Tell us about the most surprising helping hand you’ve ever received.


My sister and I were going home in a rickshaw in Dhaka city in Bangladesh, it was early evening we were only a few yards away,when suddenly we were pushed from behind, I have no idea whether we were pushed by another rickshaw or some other vehicle. We were thrown out on the street,our handbags were scattered in different direction,my sister was screaming her ankle was broken. 

Suddenly we were surrounded by what looked like students who came to help us,they picked up our bags and one of them handed them to me.I was not hurt, they felt I was in a better position to take care of them. Meanwhile my sister was screaming, some of the students called another rickshaw to take us to the hospital. They helped my sister get on the rickshaw.

I was impressed how helpful they were,they made sure no one took off with our handbags.

It was a while ago. It was early evening.My sister and I were going home in a rickshaw,suddenly we felt a jolt and we were thrown out of the vehicle. My sister was badly bruised.  One of her ankles was twisted. I hired another rickshaw and took her to the hospital.

We waited for a couple of hours to see a doctor. My sister was treated for the bruise. The physician advised her to stay in bed rest for a week. I took her home afterwards.
