After some time, a young woman passing by noticed the situation and decided to do something different. She took the sign and changed the message. Soon after people started dropping coins till the jar became full.The blind man was curious and asked the lady what happened. She read him the new sign she had written “ Its a beautiful day. You can see it. I cannot.”
