Today I met a person . She is working as a cook in our house at my hometown. Her age would be some 55 years. She comes daily twice. In the evening, I asked her, ” Why don’t you have dinner here as it would be late when you reach home”.
I could see tears in her eyes. She said the way you asked is enough for me. She refused to eat but had a satisfaction on her face. Then she started telling her story; How she is treated at her home; How in-spite of having two sons and two daughters in law, she has to cook separate food for herself; How her elder son was murdered by her elder sister in law. Still she prepares food for us with full dedication and a smile on her face.
She forced me to ponder, Do we have any humanity left ? Do poor people have any right to live in this cruel society?
We get upset by very very small things like spouse not picking up the call, getting scolded by manager in office etc. We should learn to live life from these people. She has earned my respect. Hats off to her.
People have to evolve …
