Gandhi: A simple but remarkable act of charity.


One day while Gandhi was boarding a train, one of his sandals fell from his foot and landed near the railroad track. But there was no time to retrieve the sandal as the train began to pull out of the station.

Just then, Gandhi took off the other sandal and cast it out so that it landed near the first sandal. When a stunned fellow passenger asked why he would do such a thing, Gandhi replied, “Now the poor man who finds it will have a pair he can use.”

Editor’s Note: This wonderful little story comes to us from my friend and fellow writer Kathleen Jacoby under the category “Food For Thought,” 5/29/13. http://kathleenjacoby.blogs.com/seasonsofthesoul/

Whether this little story is fact or fiction, I wanted to share it with you dear reader because it is consistent with Gandhi’s words and actions and it has within it a valuable lesson to all of us about compassion and charity.
