Mom’s love is the most selfless emotion in this universe.
Moms are not only ready to do anything to see a smile on their kids’ faces but also they don’t expect anything in return for their love. So most of us, even though we are deeply in love with them, fail to push ourselves out of the comfort zone to make them happy.
But, the story of this 17-year-old college student is quite inspiring as he broke his 12 years’ worth of savings to gift a refrigerator to his mom.
While sometimes people blame the young generation to be careless, self-centered and self-obsessed; this 17-year-old’s story would make you believe otherwise. Because this kid is different – he saved money, not for something he wanted, but something he wanted to buy for his mother.
Ram Singh, emptied all the money that he had collected from past 12 years to gift a refrigerator to his mother. He collected his coins in a 35 kg sack.
So What Happened?
Ram Singh, who belongs to Jodhpur, saw an advertisement for a fridge in the newspaper and he wanted to buy it on his mother’s birthday. So without wasting any time, he called the showroom.
When he went to the showroom to buy a fridge, he told the shopkeeper that it was his mother’s birthday and he wanted to buy a fridge but could only make the payments in coins. At first, the owner refused but later agreed to take the payment in coins.
While sharing the details of this heart-touching gesture, Ram Singh said:
“Our old refrigerator had gone bad and my mother used to talk about buying a new refrigerator. I decided to help out by using all my collected coins over the years to buy a new fridge. The showroom owner also help me out and said if my thinking is good he will also help me out. Thus, I went to the showroom with my coins.”
He further added:
“I had kept these coins in an earthen pot at home. I divide the coins in different packets and then put all of them in a sack. When I counted the coins it took me 4 hours. But the shop owner only counted the 5 and 10 Rupees coins. He told me that he believes in my sincerity towards my mom and didn’t count the rest of the coins.”
Though Ram had been collecting money for 12 years, he had managed to collect coins worth Rs 13,500. However, he was short of Rs. 2,000 when he went to buy the fridge. But, as the showroom owner was impressed by his dedication, he gave him a discount for that amount.
