A boy at station.. March 4, 2010

Sitting at the station
Forced to wait,
I cursed the train for being so late
Delayed 10 hours already
I’ll be boarding tomorrow at this rate

If it weren’t enough
the weather wasnt making the job any easy
The temperatures kept going down
and it kept getting more breezy

As I looked around
I saw a boy,
The sight of which
brought me no joy
He was just wearing a shirt
In all this cold
Covered with dirt
and that too very old
That day being a holiday
brought him no good
For he still had to work(shoe polishing)
to get his food

I took a bedsheet and
walked upto him
I said
“Itni thand main mat raho
bimar pad jaaoge”
He said
“Bimar hi padunga na,
lekin marunga nahi,
Jab tak zinda hoon
aaram karunga nahi
Paise k liye kaam to karna hi padta hai
kabhi kabhi dard bhi sahna padta hai”
Frustrated I said
“ye chadar rakh lo
tumhare kaam aayega
Is kadkadati thand main isse
tumhe thoda to aaram aayega”
He replied
“Waise main khairat leta nahi
lekin aaj lene ka man hai
kyuki ye chadar ab chadar nahi
meri mari hui maa ka kafan hai”
