Good deeds are re­warded

Once a po­lice of­fi­cer, who was trans­ferred to the city a week ago, came to our col­lege to seek ad­mis­sion for his son. The prin­ci­pal po­litely but firmly re­fused ad­mis­sion as its time was over. Although he was un­known to me, yet I pleaded his case on hu­man­i­tar­ian ground and the prin­ci­pal agreed to ad­mit him. The po­lice­man thanked us pro­fusely.

Af­ter some days, while re­turn­ing from the col­lege, I parked my bike in front of a shop to pur­chase some­thing on my re­turn, I was ter­ri­bly shocked to find my bag miss­ing from the bas­ket of the bike. I ran here and there ner­vously to search it out, cried for help but all was in vain. My trendy bag con­tained lap­top, mobile phone, hand­some amounts of money, ATM card and keys of almi­rah.

Shat­tered I re­turned home plung­ing in gloom. Sud­denly the door bell rang and the po­lice­man stood at the door with my bag. I was too sur­prised to speak any­thing. A boy prob­a­bly a trainee in the world of crime lifted the bag but threw it on the road in hor­ror see­ing a po­lice­man — to my luck — com­ing to­wards him.

When I asked the po­lice of­fi­cer, “Sir could you not send the bag through some of you as­sis­tant?” He replied, “No, I have to pay your heavy debt.”
