"Beta, ye Kharidlo" (Plz Buy this)

I heard this voice and found a lady behind me selling some toys on the station.


Yesterday, While traveling to my hometown from Mumbai, as told by everyone it's a peak time and arrives at the station at its earliest I landed Thane Station 2 Hrs before my train.


Our mind is always thinking about various things in our surroundings and life but this time I was going to ask my Mom for a lot many unanswered questions, regarding my life, job, and my future.

Just because It's always said," Maa ke pas har dard ki dawai hai"(Mom has the cure to every pain)

I was happy and disturbed at the same time

Happy Because going on a Diwali break for at least 3 Day's was enough when you know that not getting even that was a menu that could have been served to your plate.


Was just sitting and listening to one of my friend beside me I saw a lady approaching me for selling some cute toy stuff. She was dark and tall with lots of hope in her eyes and her wide smile was telling a different story at all.

I somehow refused her saying, "Thank you but I don't need this"

Later as I was sitting ideally I was observing that lady and she was visiting every passenger on station with the same smile and same words beta plz kharidlo


I compared Life with her

I questioned myself

Doesn't she have any complaints om this life!

How is she able to face every person with the same smiling face!

Can she feed herself and her family enough by selling these toys that she can have proper food?


With all this, I just moved towards her and asked her if I can take one photo of her

She said,"Beta mujhe toh mere gharwale pagal bolte hai, mujh jaise pagal ka photo leke kya karoge"

I just replied,'Please smile'

And I buy all the toys she had

She had not only gifted me one of her smiles but also had given me answers to my unanswered questions.


I learnt

1. Welcome all the situations coming to your plate with a smile on your face

2. Breaks are needed! It's okay to stop or slow down your pace but make sure you rise with a double spark

3. Dare to dream big and make sure you are making all possible efforts to achieve it.

4. Stop complaining about life and make yourself realize that you just got one

Enjoy to the fullest

5. Last but not least, Be Thankful that you are living a life 1000's of people dream to live.
