Ram and the security guard

Value- Right conduct

Sub value- Respect, courteous

Ram worked at a vegetable distribution factory. One day, when he finished with his work schedule, he went into the vegetable cold room to inspect something, but in a moment of bad luck, the door closed and he was locked inside with no help in sight.

Although he screamed and knocked with all his might, his cries went unheard as no one could hear him. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside.

Five hours later, whilst Ram was on the verge of death, the security guard of the factory, eventually opened the door and saved Ram’s life. Ram then asked the security guard how he got to open the door, as it wasn’t part of his work routine, and he explained thus:

“I’ve been working in this factory for 35 years, hundreds of workers go in and out every day, but you’re one of the few who greets me in the morning and says goodbye to me every night when leaving after working hours. Many treat me as if I am invisible. Today, like every other day, you greeted me in your simple manner  ‘Hello’ at the entrance when resuming for work. But curiously, after working hours today, I observed I’ve not heard your ‘Bye see you tomorrow’. Hence I decided to check around the factory. I look forward to your ‘Hi’ and ‘Bye’ every day. To you, I am someone. By not hearing your farewell, I knew something had happened. Then I sought and found you


One must be humble, love and respect those around us. Someone seemingly so insignificant and irrelevant today could be the only help we can get tomorrow. We take things for granted without knowing how many people around us most of them whom we don’t even care to look at; make things happen around us to give us a comfortable or safe society to live.
