Kids have a penchant for collecting something which they like the most. Some kids say ‘stamp collection’ is one of the flashiest hobbies whereas others say collecting stickers or toys or coins are indeed the best hobbies. Just like many, the 13-year-old Yash’s favourite hobby is coin collection.
But what he did after collecting coins is truly amazing which cannot be put it in words. He proved that Brother-Sister’s love is eternal when he gifted his sister Rupal a scooter on the memorable occasion of Bhai Dooj.
It was on October 19, 2017, the auspicious day of Diwali, Yash took his sister to a Honda showroom with a weird request that he wanted to afford a scooty for his elder sister but would process the payment only in coins. Interestingly, Yash had brought the bag comprising the coins worth Rs. 62,000 approximately. Yash turned his hobby into savings that he along with his sister had saved the money in coins over the years.
The showroom owners money was from his pocket money that he along with his sister had saved over the years. When Yash said to the showroom owner that he would make the payment in coins, the showroom owner was surprised as he initially snubbed it. But the manager changed his mind after coming to know about their touching story.
The staff was willing to leave for the day as it was Diwali, the young boy told them that he wanted to afford the scooter for his elder sister as a gift for Bhai Dooj. It is cognisance of the fact that Bhai Dooja comes two-days after Diwali that was celebrated on October 21, 2017.
His touching story convinced the manager to keep the showroom open while some staff started maths calculation while counting the coins. The bag contained 62,000 coins exactly. As reported by TOI, Yash said, “We saved the amount of our pocket money which we usually get in coins. Even when we get it in the form of currency notes, we exchanged it for coins.”
Santosh Kumar, the GM of the dealership told NBT, “We often get customers who pay a part of the money in coins but this is a rare case where the entire amount was paid in coins.” The counting process went for more than 2 hours as the showroom staff successfully calculated right amount that read Rs. 62,000.
Yash and Rupal wanted to give a huge surprise to their parents so they took their maternal uncle to the showroom. After the payment was done, Yash and Rupal came out of the showroom with the scooty and surprised their parents with this gesture.
