1. You were given a gift that day. You were allowed to see how different the world could be if people treated other people as they would like to be treated. Don't throw this gift away. Pass it on, and do something kind for another when you are given the opportunity. And thank you for sharing this story with us.
2. Mostly,people are still kind and helpful ... and I'm glad this old gentleman happened to meet such a person. Thank you for sharing this moment, it was beautiful.
1. We don’t need a crowd to create sufficient positive energies to run a society.... a few are more than enough and that bank manager was certainly one of those Rishis.
Thanks for sharing ... it confirmed my belief in God and his angels
We all should follow his example (& I don’t think many will know what you wished to convey)

3. Bravo for the bank officer with a heart! Too often they hide behind "that's not our policy."
4. It is an example of still the humanity is present in the world. I can react by doing nothing but following his attitude.
5. The Bank Officer has given excellent customer service. I hope others also will emulate him, so that this becomes the normal trend not only in the Banking industry but in other fields also. My heartfelt appreciation to the concerned Officer and also to you for highlighting it. Thanks
6. The bank officer was doing his job, which most employees fail to do these days.
7. Most of us want to work sincerely. This gives us job satisfaction, but sometimes we don’t have time to listen to the whole story of old men. It’s very, very sad. I wish we learned to respect older generation and give them sometime even if we have to work little extra in lunchtime or teatime. I have seen some good bank officers and some careless chaps too. What is most annoying is that if we ask them on phone for information. They say “come here we will get your job done immediately and when we go there they scold us saying that we had to get this that. (Photo ID, etc),” A surprise!
Sometimes they say we shouldn’t be disturbing them at lunchtime, (working hours are written as 10 am -3 pm, No lunch break etc). We also get time during our lunch break & go to our nearest banks where our paychecks are given
8. My salute to the rare bank officer!
9. Cheers to him and to you for recognizing true honor and kindness. And if you and others pass on in actions what this bank officer started, who knows how much better someone's life will be.
10. I am too moved! Such person's achieving their goal does not get halted, and even they are defeated at some juncture, because of presence of useless & unsocial elements at most of the places, they retrieve the good out of defeat too.
Such quality of a few personnel you find at every place and in the concerns, because of their belongingness to their orgnisation and to the humanity, the truth & honesty in the Society are in existence.
I pray! God bless such personnel long, healthy and energetic life, so that asset of truth & honesty in society could place its' roots deeply
11. Most of the official in all government office and other public related office like bank etc. does their work very sincerely like this bank officer.
But the public does not understand there are so many instructions, guidances, circulars and laws to control their work.
If they insist to fill the condition, public are hasten to judge them as rude and non-cooperative.It is our country and we work not only for salary and job satisfaction but it is our duty too to do the best for our country. As a retired government officer I salute the bank officer for his conscience.
12. My SALUTE to the bank officer. They are the few who has prevented the collapse of our present selfish society. I am very, very grateful to you for bringing this into notice. We must reward that officer and to you also for having this nice feeling. God bless you.
13. Help such persons as and when necessary and honour them when they meet. But they should not make capital out of each every now and then.
14. On occasions we should honour and help, as required but how long one should make capital out of it?
15. He is very much appreciable and also it’s his duty because we are having the fruit of their hard work for achieving us freedom. Anyhow I applaud the bank officer.
16. I appreciate any help to any infirm person. If the officer was rough (may be he was busy) what is it you are expected to do? Can you help? I know most of us close our eyes for such injustices. Always talk politely to old and sick people. Freedom fighters are a class by themselves
17. Some behavior /culture/custom comes from family, some handed down from age to age. Hence realizing and solving the need of others comes under the banner of humanity and the person /concerned with welfare /engaged in this should be designated as humanitarian.
18. Hats off to this great human being
19. Deeply touched and deeply moved by the respect shown by the gentleman. It follows the "random acts of kindness" concept in some ways. Doesn't it.
2. I would say that he just showed respect towards an elderly person which is part of Indian culture
3. There was no nobility involved. The officer has a job to do and he did it with extreme professionalism and courtesy.
4. At first let me tell you one thing. Nowadays targets are set for each employee in a bank and we can expect same kind of behavior to a new customer who is willing to open an account
2nd here what you have mentioned is related to an old man, obviously as a citizen we should respect a senior citizen and the bank officer also gave the same respect every Indian citizen should do......hats off to the bank officer
5. Higly "professional"
6. He knows the importance of history and has the sense of acting according to the situation.. Knows how, when and where to behave in what manner?

1. I appreciate the good and fine conduct of the bank officer. We need such people today
2. If I was a bank officer I would have done the same thing. It is not because I am a good person, but because Mr. Sethuramalingam commanded that care and respect. I do not blame government much as our whole society has became uncaring
