The world isn't all that bad, there are a few good people out there. One poor, old man in Isanagar, who probably needs money more than most people, found Rs 90,000 cash on the road and he did not run away with it. He did not keep a cut. He went to a police station and returned the entire sum.

The world isn't all that bad, there are a few good people out there. One poor, old man in Isanagar, who is probably in more urgent need of money more than most people, found Rs 90,000 in cash on the road. Not only did he not run away with it, but he went to a police station and returned the entire sum.

According to a report in The Logical Indian, Durgesh, a resident of Isanagar, withdrew Rs 90,000 from the bank and put it in the trunk of his car. The money fell out while he was traveling on an uneven road.

The old man found the wad of cash and took it straight to the police station. Meanwhile, Durgesh had noticed that the money was missing and had lodged a complaint at the police station.

When the old man walked into the station and returned the money, the police could not help but be in awe of his honesty. They took the old man to their headquarters where Captain Arvind Sen rewarded the man with Rs 7,000, a dhoti and a kurta for his honesty.

Finding Rs 90,000 on the streets would be a windfall for most. But the old man's honesty in returning every penny even under poor living conditions, is an example for all to follow.

Even though they may live in the shadows, we haven't run out of white knights.
