A Bengaluru woman shared a wholesome incident with a Rapido captain on Reddit page, r/bangalore. The incident took place when the woman was coming back from her office in the evening. She explained that she usually walks to her home as getting a taxi during peak Bengaluru traffic hours is difficult and also she is “super broke.” Since the distance is about 2.5 kilometres, she takes it as a fitness challenge and walks all the way.

However, on June 21, while coming back home, she fell as she missed spotting a drain on the road. She was quite badly hurt and worse of all was that a man saw her and just laughed at her before walking away. Since she was not able to walk and hadn’t even covered half the distance, she decided to book a Rapido. Luckily for her, her bike cab arrived in less than five minutes.

Seeing her holding her shoes, the Rapido caption asked her “What happened?” The woman explained how she fell. In the Reddit post, she then mentioned that throughout the journey, the Rapido captain asked her about herself, why she was walking home, etc. He even called her a “baby” as she was still an intern in her office.

Coming to the best part, he refused to take money from her when he dropped her at her home. When she insisted, he said “When you get your own money then give it to someone who needs it. I try doing one good thing every day, you are that for me.” He then asked her to get inside and treat her injury.

The Redditor mentioned that this was her second week in Bengaluru and this incident was enough for her to form a perspective about the city and its people.

She then called him “Kind Rapido Man” and said that she hoped “all the good things happen to you. I hope you receive the kindness back and then some. I hope life is easier and happier for you.”
