There was one small family living in a town. A girl in her early teens and her parents. Girl's name was Suchitra. They had a small rented house and Suchitra's father was working in a factory but being not very educated the salary he earned was barely sufficient for the family. Though they were happy but many a times Suchitra's parents used to feel that they are not able to give their daughter many good things she deserves and she should get. But Suchitra was very clever and understanding girl and she used to not complain about anything. 


Suchitra was good in studies and activities like singing, dancing and even she used to help her mother in household work. Her mother felt that Suchitra should learn dance or music alongwith her studies but they could not afford the fees for classes. One day Suchitra came from school and told her mother that they have a dance competition in school after a month or so and for that she is will need a nice new dress but she didn't have a new dress to wear for the competition so her mother said you participate and do your practice, we will see about the dress. 


After a week or so , Suchitra wake up in the morning and saw one packet lying outside in a small garden of their house. She got curious so she opened it and to her surprise she found a nice red colour newly stitched dress in it . She told her parents they were hesitant but then decided that only for dance competition she will use it. So after few days, she performed well in the competition and got first prize. 


After 2-3 months again the same thing happened , someone had kept a package in her house garden and this time it was new school bag and new pair of shoes, they all were surprised !!!! They tried to find out who is that person who is helping them ???? ....but didn't get any clue.

One evening Suchitra and her parents were just chatting in their garden and they saw a man is coming towards their house and he had a piece of paper in his hand and he told Suchitra's father that Lele Madam has asked me to give you.


Lele family was very rich and influential in their town. They were having big bunglow and farms and fruit gardens . Actualy 10 years back Suchitra's father worked with them but due to some misunderstanding and mis behaviour from them (Lele's son ) he left the job and joined factory.

But now Lele's son was not staying in town, he was settled in foreign country with his family. So only Lele Madam was looking after the whole property and their business and she was a very nice decent lady.


So Suchitra's parents went to meet Lele Madam the next day morning at the given time and address given on piece of paper they received from a man previous day evening.

They were greeted with warmth by Lele Madam. She said I was following you since last few months and thought of meeting you but I was hesitant and nervous due to my son's behaviour with you many years back but then now decided to meet and apologize to you and also if you can come back to us, and manage our factory where we make fruit Jam and fruit juices and send to various cities and also export to foriegn country. I will give you a good salary and a portion of my bunglow to stay there and she said I also will get help from Suchitra's mother in kitchen if you have no problem.  I will pay her for that .few typing errorsSuchitra's mother was good cook so she immediately said yes ....


Suchitra's father asked for some time to take a decision, and Lele Madam agreed to it. Now while they were talking all this they came to know as to who was that Angel who gifted a dress and school bag and shoes to Suchitra ... .it was Lele Madam...she said when my son went to foreign country with his family.....I started missing them . Though they are always in my contact and come here twice in a year but I miss my grand daughter who must be Suchitra's age. And so I thought about you people that if you work with me again I will feel like I have corrected a mistake made by my son and so by me....few years back. Me and my son will feel good about it. And also if you come and stay here that also will be great. I will get to see my grand daughter in Suchitra every day. 


And don't think this offer is because of any selfish thought behind it but I genuinely want to help you, and because you are good people, because of your reputation I am asking you to join us. And as time passes we come across many people and try to learn the difference between good and bad and people who are good always come to our minds again even after years. So I and my son have realised our mistake that we made in your case a few years back.


After having a discussion at home and also what Suchitra has to say ..... they decided to join Lele Madam. And their life became more easy and happy !!!!!!
