A girl, Kavya Rao, booked a cab for her parents to go to the hospital. As her parents reached the hospital, the driver, Sunil, refused to take the fare of Rs. 140 for the 6-kilometer journey. Initially, the parents were quite baffled, and they forced him to take the money. The driver didn’t accept the money and confessed that he doesn’t charge people for hospital trips. What a selfless service!
To laud his humanity, Kavya Rao shared her parents’ experience of Ola ride, and people are praising Sunil’s unselfish gesture.
Kavya narrated the whole incident on Facebook and her post has garnered over 44K like. This is what she had to say:
Normally, I have a lot of complaints against Ola. But today, I’m here to share a wonderful story.
I booked a cab for my parents as my dad had to go to the hospital for a check up. As micro and mini weren’t available I booked a prime sedan. The driver arrived promptly and dropped my parents at the hospital. It was a cash trip and the bill was Rs 140. The driver (Sunil) absolutely refused to take money from my mom saying he doesn’t take payment for hospital trips. Both my parents tried a lot to make him accept payment but he was very adamant. He insisted that dropping people to hospitals was his way of helping the society. Mom asked him to at least take a part of the bill (petrol expenses) but he just refused and left.
My parents were stunned and when mom told me this, I was in a shock. In today’s day and age when auto drivers start a conversation with “200 rupees” or “meter double” and cab drivers cancel bookings just because they don’t like the destinations, Sunil is a gem.
I’m attaching the cab details, if you could find any way to appreciate him, would be very grateful. God bless him and his kind.
Humanity is still alive.
