Amid all this chaos, a Delhi-resident Viplav Arora was traveling in an Ola cab and was out of cash (only had Rs 500 notes which were worthless at that point of time). He decided to pay it via Ola Money but when his ride ended, it was little over the amount he had in his Ola account and he was supposed to pay the rest of it in cash, but there was absolutely no other option to pay.
When the driver, Vipin Kumar, came to know about it, he replied, ” Sir baaki k paise rehne dijiye , do paise kam kama lenge ,thodi si takleef hogi or vo to sab ko ho rhi hai, ab sarkaar ke faisley ka samaan krte hue , desh ki tarakki me ye hamara yogdaan hi samjh lenge. Aap befikr hokar apni train lijiye.
(Sir, let it be. Even if I earn a little less money, it’ll be a little bit difficult to manage but it’s the case with everyone. In the honor of the decision government took; consider this as my contribution to the country’s growth. You please go ahead and board your train without any worries)”
