4. The truck
driver and Baleshwar need our appreciation. Discuss in detail.

Ans- Baleshwar, an
unemployed high school dropout needs our appreciation as he has done a great job,
what an educated person hesitates to do. When not a single passenger from the
over packed train came forward to save a stranger’s life, Baleshwar jumped off
the moving train risking his life. The passengers feared the inconvenience and
getting trapped in the courts or with the police. Baleshwar came forward to
help only with compassion, love and mercy which are worthy to be appreciated. The
truck driver was a simple middle-aged man who spoke Gujarati, he just wanted to
lend a helping hand and did not expect any reward. He had helped Baleshwar to
lay Roma on to the back of his truck. He gave his mobile to Baleshwar to make a
call to Roma’s family members.He also helped Baleshwar to take Roma to the
Divine multi-specialty hospital. When no motorists who were well off came
forward to help, the truck driver leaving his daily earning he accompanied
Baleshwar till Roma reached a hospital that could treat her injury. Simple man’s
great work really needs our appreciation.
