I stopped on my way, walking to catch the bus, at the nearby shop to buy a few stuffs for myself.Suddenly, a small girl of nine years of age caught my attention….she was of dark complexion and looks very tired. The child must be working very hard on a construction site or in someone else house to bring the fifty rupee note to the house.The shopkeeper gives her 50 paise back and she confidently asked for a toffee.I tried to empathize with and she gives me such a confident smile before walks on her way. Keep walking, I was tempted to say.
Well food for thought.Forget about child labor,the main thing is how many of us can manage to smile back to people when we have an exhausting day? For us it sound like we are the only victim of office oppression,we fume to the owner of the car or bike who dashes on our way, not without expletives. If only we could smile back to our difficulties and treat it as a lesson or life experience….
