How Kindness Helps
Our definition of kindness is to behave with all
persons just as you would desire them to behave
The above is nothing but the Golden Rule which is
found in the scriptures of all religions without
It has been preached by Prophets from most
religions, so that people had good relations with
each other, quarrelled or fought less, and could
work for each other in cooperation for the
survival and prosperity of all.
Researchers in Anthropology and Sociology have
found that the human race dominates all creation
because they are best in working together in
Our civilization, science and technology would
not have been possible without such cooperation.
No one can ever succeed in life and be happy
without support from thousands or lakhs of other
people in some way or the other. It is
estimated that over 1,00,000 people, living or
now dead, have made vital contribution to getting
us our morning cup of tea!
There are always some freer riders or
system cheats who benefit from the
work of others but make little contribution
Such behaviour arises from undue attention to
self-interest and little or no attention to the
common interest, and hence less cooperation.
We all need to attend to self-interest for our
individual survival, but we also need to care for
the common interest for survival of humanity
without which no individual can survive for long.
Each one of us has therefore to balance
self-interest with the common interest of society,
but in recent times more and more persons are
engrossed only in their self-interest. This is
the real reason for increasing frauds, scams,
crimes, terrorism, wars and all kinds of wars.
Doing deliberate small acts of kindness can
correct this by constantly forcing us to notice
others and their interests. Gradually this
becomes a behavioural habit.
Kindness Unlimited has researched the cause of
increasing selfishness, crime and violence in
society and has come to the conclusion that only
the propagation of frequent small act of kindness
can reverse or at least control this trend.
Little acts of Kindness,
Nothing do they cost,
Yet when they are wanting,
Lifes charm is lost !
Kindness Unlimited can assist schools, colleges,
hospitals, businesses and industries to spread
the idea and the need for individuals doing
frequent small acts of kindness in the course of
their work. Excerpts from the Readers
Digest article (attached) show the nature of
results we got in the first school we worked
with. The article was independently researched by
them without our knowledge. We now propose to
work with public utilities and the police.

INTEREST. One can achieve this balance by
making kindness a habit. Yes, it is
possible, if only you want to!
