Honesty is the best policy! Would you do the same as Mumbai Ragpicker did when he spots Rs 33000 by tracks?
It is a story of a Mumbai man, who is a ragpicker and honest towards her work. Dipchand Gupta, aged 30, found a purse with Rs 33000 cash, debit cards, and credit cards on a railway track while he was on his work. Instead of remaining silent and keeping it with himself, he deposited it to the Thane stationmaster.

Not everyone is too fortunate to get their lost things back. The stationmaster traced the owner and returned it. A woman to whom the purse belonged to, felt with rejoiced and rewarded Ragpicker with Rs 2,500 as a token of appreciation.
What happened exactly was that Gupta was picking up empty plastic bottles and waste on railway tracks near Thane station. During his course of work, he found the purse with heavy cash. He handed it over to the stationmaster.

The owner thanked Ragpicker and rewarded him Rs 2,500
The owner of the purse was Mokashi, 22, who revealed that her monthly income was there in the purse. She had withdrawn the whole salary to give to family. But, later on, she realized that her purse has gone missing.
Thankful to an honest man, she said-
"I realised I'd lost my purse when I got down from the autorickshaw. I called my friend to search for it near the station. We retraced my steps and looked in all the spots I had stopped, but, in the meantime, the ragpicker found it and gave it to a railway official. I am really thankful to him. It's my hard-earned money. I couldn't stop crying when I got the call that it had been found."
Salute to ragpicker's deed for setting such a beautiful example of honesty. Such inspirational story of getting lost things back was also seen in Delhi when a man lost wallet on Delhi Metro and got it after 11 days
