One day, Raju was reading newspaper along with his father. Raju saw an interesting article on the famous actor Sonu Sood and asked his father what great work did he do?
I know Raju you have seen Sonu Sood as a hero in some movies but do you know he emerged as the most unlikely superhero during the pandemic and helped thousands of migrants to go back to their homes and continued doing good deeds. He has arranged hundreds of buses to take stranded migrants home.
Well, Raju I know you love poems, so let me tell you an interesting poem “The plate of gold” which is also based on good deeds by James Henry Leigh Hunt
“The plate of Gold “by James Henry Leigh Hunt, is about a miraculous golden plate which was once found in a Benaras temple. It was written on the plate that “To him who loveth best, a gift from heaven”, which means that only that person could claim this golden plate, whom God loves the most. After the announcement, a crowd of poor and handicapped beggars stood at the streets and near the gates of the temple expecting plentiful alms from the claimants.
The Plate of Gold
-James Henry Leigh Hunt
One day there fell in great Benares' temple-court A wondrous plate of gold, whereon these words were writ; "To him who loveth best, a gift from Heaven." There at The priests made proclamation: "At the midday hour, Each day, let those assemble who for virtue deem their right to Heaven's gift the best; and we will hear the deeds of mercy done, and so adjudge." The news ran swift as light, and soon from every quarter came nobles and munshis, hermits, scholars, holy men, and all renowned for gracious or for splendid deeds, meanwhile the priests in solemn council sat and heard what each had done to merit best the gift of Heaven. So for a year the claimants came and went.
