Today is No Different

A NYC taxi driver returned a bag containing 31 diamond rings which he found in the trunk of his cab after dropping off a passenger who gave him a 30-cent tip on a $10.70 fare.

"All my life, I tried to be honest. Today is no different. I'm not going to take someone else's money or property to make me rich. I don't want it that way," said Osman Chowdhury, a soft-spoken cabbie, who was a contractor in Bangladesh until he came to the United States 15 years ago. He does not own a cab but rents one.

"I enjoy my life. I'm satisfied," said Chowdhury.
