The kind acts of acquaintances have really touched my heart this month. Today was no exception.
In my first year, I participated in a moot court competition on space law, a field of public international law that doesn’t traditionally have too much literature. I was fortunate enough to do well at the competition. More crucially though, I got exposure and interacted with people I wouldn’t have ever dreamed of interacting.
Once I decided that I was going to Cologne, I ensured I got in touch with them.
They drove down to Cologne and spent the entire morning and afternoon with me. They took me all around the Center of the city and the cathedral, and were kind enough to spend time with me telling me about the history of the town and what its architecture represents. That’s all well and good, but they did this on a Sunday afternoon? With someone they met only once, four years ago?
I’m very, very blessed.
I’m also blessed that my University played host to a very, very kind person who has since become a friend, and I was able to spend the night at his place. I cherish the time he spent here in Gujarat – for he genuinely seemed happy here, and I was really happy to see him in his hometown, where he ensured my own happiness.
