Recently, one of my blog subscribers, Mr. Krishnan, sent me a touching story which I would like to share with you today, Thank you Mr. Krishnan for sharing it.

The BOSS honors his DRIVER of 30 years by driving his dead driver to his grave!
-Author Unknown-

This story is about Mr. Zavere Poonawala who is a well-known industrialist in Pune, India.

His driver named Ganga Datt has been with him for the last 30 years chauffeuring his limousine, which was originally owned by Acharya Rajneesh.

Ganga Datt passed away recently and at that time Mr. Poonawala was in Mumbai for some important work.

As soon as he heard the news, he canceled all his meetings, requested the driver's family to await him for the cremation and came back to Pune immediately by a helicopter.

On reaching Pune, he asked the limo to be decorated with flowers as he wished Ganga Datt should be taken in the same car which he himself had driven since the beginning.

When Ganga Datt's family agreed to his wishes, he himself drove Ganga Datt from his home up to the ghat on his last journey.

When asked about it, Mr. Poonawala replied that Ganga Datt had served him day and night, and he could at least do this being eternally grateful to him.

He further added that Ganga Datt rose up from poverty and educated both his children very well.

Ganga Datt's daughter is a Chartered accountant and that shows the kind of upbringing he must have given to his children.

His comment in the end, is the essence of a successful life in all aspects:

“Everybody earns money, nothing unusual in that, but we should always be grateful to those people who contribute to our success.

This is the belief, we have been brought up with, which made me do, what I did”.

This is truly an inspiring example of humility.
