I always separate the waste generated in my home. Then once a week make a trip to the Recycling Centre to dump it according to the categories available there.
On Sunday, we visited the recycling centre. I got out of the car and first took a pile of newspapers to put it in the paper container. I opened the lid of the container. It was overflowing, maybe because of the weekend. But to my surprise, I saw a few books in good condition thrown in the bin. A book by Barbra and Allen Pease caught my attention. Without wasting a second, I kept the pile of papers down and took the book out of the bin.
I flipped through it and noticed that it was almost a new book. Before pushing my pile of papers in I kept the book aside.
When I went back to the car, I showed the book to Sangram. I told him, it was probably a reward you get when you do your duty honestly. Now the book is on my ‘To Read’ pile.
