One Sunday, morning I was traveling on a subway in Mumbai. People were sitting quietly some reading newspapers, some lost in thought. It was a calm, peaceful scene.

Then suddenly, a man and his children entered the subway car. The children were so loud and rambunctious that instantly the whole climate changed. The man sat next to me and closed his eyes, apparently oblivious to the situation. The children were yelling back and forth, throwing things, even grabbing people’s papers. It was very disturbing. And yet, the man sitting next to me did nothing. It was difficult not to feel irritated. I could not believe that he could be so insensitive as to left as to let his children run wild and do nothing about it. It was easy to see that everyone else on the subway felt irritated too. So, finally, I turned to him and said Sir, your children are really disturbing a lot of people. I wonder if you couldn’t control them a little more.

The man lifted his gaze as if to come to a consciousness of the situation for the situation for the first time and said softly, “Oh you’re right. I guess should do something about it. We just came from the hospital where their mother die an hour ago, I don’t know what to think and I guess they don’t know how to handle it either.” Can you imagine what I felt at that moment. My paradigm shifted. Suddenly I saw things differently, and because I saw things differently I thought, felt and behaved differently. My irritation vanished, my heart was filled with the man’s pain. Feelings of sympathy and compassion flowed freely. “Your wife just died? Oh, I am sorry! Can you tell me about it? What can I do to help?” Everything changed in an instant.
