My Story: I See His Father Repairing Cycles All Day, Every Day. He Spoke Proudly About His Sons Achievements

The Logical Indian Crew

May 23rd, 2017

“I was washing my bike when a local bicycle repair shop’s owner (who knows me well) walks up to me and says ‘My son scored 410/500 in 10th!’ His happiness was genuinely seen on his lit up face. I immediately congratulated him and asked him to send his son over to my place.

His son, Kishore, came and I was shocked to see him because I had always seen him play on roads and sometimes joined him as well. I had no clue he was the son of that man. He walks up to me with chocolates and says ‘Anna nyaba irruka?’ (Do you remember me?). I took him to my room and for about half an hour spoke to him about his friends, family, passion, ambitions etc. And I must admit he’s one of the smartest kid who communicates so well but unfortunately, he didn’t speak English much. It’s true ‘You don’t need to know English to become a good speaker’. I then took him for a lunch to treat him and there he spoke about his family issues, which was very touching.

He asked me about how I managed to score in 10th and I was like ‘Oh boy you don’t wanna know,’ (My classmates know how much I really ‘studied’). He then asked me about what my plans and goals are and we laughed together when he shared few incident of his school.

I loved the guy and gave my number to him and asked him to contact me on weekends and I shall teach him English and help him with his studies as well. What do I get out of it? Well, I already got to learn a lot.

1. Happiness: I see his father daily repairing cycles all day long in the soaring heat but when he spoke proudly about his son’s achievement, I guess it took all his pain away.
2. Being confident: Kishore never hesitated to speak. He spoke his heart out (which is exactly how I speak) without any embarrassment or shyness (which I see a lot of people still not being able to).
3. Long-term goals: I wanted to test and so I asked him if he didn’t want to hang out with girls or drink or smoke. He gave a funny reply. He says ‘Anna, girls are fine but not smoke and drink because I don’t want my family to suffer because of me’. I hope he gets a good life since he actually is deserving.”
