Life is too short and we never know when it is going to end. We keep ourselves indulged in things which are important for us only and keep planning for our future. Still, we never are contented with what we have and we keep demanding for more. But the truth is, those who live for others are the most satisfied and happiest people on earth.
We have a collection of such kind and generous people, in which some of them dedicated their lives to others, and some spent only a moment to be of any help to the ones in need.
