"Uriah"......Our Security Guard !!!!!


We meet so many people in our day to day life.....few leaves an impression on your mind and makes a difference. Uriah is one such person for me.....so I thought My post today would be for her. Uriah works in our hospital as one of the security guards. After a few days of her joining in, I would find her every morning , near the entrance gate.Our friendship started off with an exchange of smiles.....and then one day a good morning greeting, followed by a few exchange of "how are you?....are you on duty now ?....etc.And now when ever she has morning duty , I would find her waiting as I drive in.....she would make a special effort to reserve my usual parking space for me.....And if by any chance I don't park in my usual place , she would come and tell me " Mam! I kept your space....so don't worry." After my duty hours , as I leave the hospital , Uriah would come running and go out of the gate to the main road and stop the moving vehicles, so that I can drive out with ease and believe me that sure is a relief , or else one would think only the passing vehicles are in a rush and you could wait the whole day for the traffic to ease out. I know Uriah is not paid to cater to me....and she does not have to do all that she does for me. So am honestly touched and grateful to her . Its people like her who walks into your life and makes a difference.....small gestures like these can make your day. It has become a habit for both Uriah and I to greet each other before we start our day and when we don't happen to meet , each would be asking the other "what happened?" the next day.

Wow Nitu! Loved this post. And I am sure that Uriah takes special care of you because she also knows that you are a gem of a person. :D

Firstly, hats off to you for appreciating people like Uriah because lets face it - we live in a capitalist world where everything is about profit and typically, the trend has caught on with "India Shining." I liked the fact that you talked about Uriah with such appreciation and warmth because its considered smart these days to treat people in subordinate professions like dirt. Great going and all the best.
