There was a small family of 3 a husband wife and a daughter.This is the background of the story here.                     ..kanth you are appointed this was the message given by a lady on phone.Kanth was elated and so happy.This news was what he had been waiting for quite some time.He could earn and support his parents.The same wish that any grown up son will have.Kanth was not so highly educated nor qualified.But,he was confident that he would work hard to fulfil his dreams and finally he had a job in his hand that was the first step that would help in succeed in life.With a positive frame of mind he started off to his place of posting to the city of dreams yes mumbai .On landing there he took sometime to settle down. He got a home in a chawl with some meagre rent.He was so happy.Life started rolling.He was so busy with his work that he forgot about everything else.It was a textile mill where he was employed.Work was tiresome but Kanth had no qualms about that.His eye was to make money and send it home so that all others would be comfortable.As we all are aware life in the dream city is so hectic but full of vibrancy .Kanth too fell in groove and flowed with that tide .After an year or so his parents decided Kanth had to get married and a girl from the neighborhood was decided to be his bride.The family were no strangers they knew each other since long.Kanth had no qualms so he agreed and got married happily.He took his wife along with him to Mumbai and started his life journey afresh as a married man.Everything was hunky Dory for sometime but alas something unfortunate happened.The textile mill where Kanth was employed went into losses and a lockout was declared.It was an unexpected turn of events that rendered Kanth penniless and he had an additional responsibility now.Where from he could manage paying rent,arranging food and other requirements.This was a big challenge.He tried to do some menial jobs like selling textiles,plastic items door to door etc.But it was not sufficient at all.So Kanth and his wife decided to shift to small town down south where they could find some means of earning.There they go .On reaching they understand life would not be easy at all. Language was a barrier and the town was so small that earning potential seemed less.But with no option left Kanth started searching for job any job seemed ok.His wife was in full support to whatever he did. After a long wait Kanth landed a job at a construction site where he had to load and unload bricks and mortar.It was a very tiresome job.Kanth took it as a challenge and worked very hard .At the end of each day he was paid some money which was not at all sufficient for him and his wife.His wife was good at tailoring so she started stitching clothes for the neighborhood ladies.She was paid in pittance but had to do the work again for supporting her husband. With the passage of time they became happy parents to a lovely girl.The girl brought vibrancy into their dull and monotonous life.Kanth and his wife saved every penny for her sake. They wanted the best for her as every parent wishes for.Now it was time for her to join School.Arranging money for admission and buying books etc was a huge task for the couple.Kanth started working as a ATM machine security guard in the night shift.His wife requested the School authorities to give her a job in the same School where their daughter would be admitted.But her education was not suitable for her to work as a teacher so she opted for a job as a helper without any second thought.The money earnt this way could help them to save some more for their daughter's sake..Their daughter was studious and good in all co curricular activities.She finished her education and got a job in a nearby city helping her to share the burden of managing all household expenses.She was married off to a good looking and well placed boy.Kanth and his wife were the happiest when their grand children were born.They forgot all the pain they underwent all these years to eke a simple life.Kanth and his wife still have many unanswered questions as to what if they could make their child educated,what if they could not get her married and what if they could not heave a sigh of relief if their daughter was not settled into her familial bliss with children and her extended family. But they were finally able to get everything they wanted after a lot of hardship and frustrations.
