Moved to tears

A story shared by someone on Facebook that absolutely moved me to tears…

Last Saturday I met a Sales Man With Puppet!!!!!(A note from Anand Rai)

I saw him last Saturday around 6.30 pm in F block, Inner Circle, Connought Place. He was well dressed, wearing ironed full-sleeved shirt tucked into his trousers fastened with a black leather belt and a stick to support himself.
His hand was covered with puppet gloves which make a “PPPPPIIIIPPPP” sound that enable him to attract passersby.

I was curious about his life.Let’s meet Mr. Sahay – he is a living example for people who are scared of  struggle. He is 75. At this age he comes daily from Rohtak with a bag full of puppets and a water bottle which is heavy making every step uncomfortable. He has a railway pass which enable him to commute daily from Rohtak. He earns for his wife, married daughter and her children. 

He is a retired bank manager. He had a son who finished chartered accountancy, for which he spent all his savings.
His son moved to Bahrain without informing him and after some time he heard the news that his son died in an accident.
Now he is the only bread earner for his family. Now he sells puppets at Rs.40/- a pair. 

Sometimes I am left speechless by such everyday stories. And moved to tears. Saluting the spirit of this man whose heart has withstood such grief! Maybe…this is life.
