Are u listening ?? it hurts.. :(


Everyone was busy in d room, maa was busy with her friends, ma sis was busy watching her fav prog on tv n me
was trying to take intrest in their conversation (ma always complain me it looks so odd that u don't sit
with ma frnds for few min also). n i saw an old lady was sitting in one of the corner of ma room, c must
be around 70-75 yrs old, sitting on the floor, completely silent looking at us.
I asked maa.."who's she??"
maa: she is parvati's mother (well parvati is our maid)
hmm.. i was looking at her she was extrmly silent, trying to participate in our talk but after 1-2 approches
given up n sit calmly facing towards tv.none of our jokes made her laungh..not even smile also..
After few minutes parvati come up with tea n snacks as she was ordered to do so..
when she left i saw she didnt offered her mother anything neither tea nor snacks
but nobody cared at all...i asked maa abt it.
maa called parvati and asked why didnt u offered her anything? c didn't answerd den her mother was too offered with tea n snacks in a diffenent plate.. (well atleast c was being offered)
Her eyes sparkeled with joy, c took a glance of thanking n smiled as she was noticed by us....
now she was much busy enjoying d things given to her
but some of aunts didn't liked it.
dey tried to convience maa " do not give so much respect to them they will act smartly with u.."
I didnt liked their comments, i looked at d old lady as if her silent eyes were askin them:
" why cant i enjoy sitting wth u n talk,becoz m old? m poor?
why cnt i get respect which i deserve who wil make them undrstnd how i feel.. m also a human being n i gt hurt by d way they treat me.. ......n so on....
Maa replied : For us its not a big issue(snacks), but for them it do matter a lot,n why cant we show some care, love n respect to them.. sometime ppl r hungry for d respect more den food...
in d meanwhile aunts changed d topic of dissun as they didnt liked it .. n maa stopped so everyone distracted frm dat old lady..
but now she was smiling...
.I can understand d sparkel in her eyes wasnt becoz of d snacks but the respect given to her..but
we don't understand... we just ignore them by offering money or somthing to eat never show them love ,care or any sort of respect...i hope d aunts sud also had understood dis so dat d old lady sudnt go through any insult session at their home...

I like your post very much, bcoz i also realises sometime that most of people in India have very narrow approach towards the poor people although they are human beings as we are.....

First time on your blog...The post is like direct dil se...
Agree with you some time behavior of people towards poor one is not good.
A few words of love and sympathy can create a difference. Why don't people realize this..
