My Story: I Was Amazed To See The Spirit Of This “Young Soul”

The Logical Indian

October 16th, 2015 / 12:38 AM

That day, I was returning from my work on a Saturday evening in a local train from Church gate to Borivali.

I was half drowsy so every now and then used to raise my head to give a look around. It was in Vile Parle that I was astonished to see a wrinkly old lady with a walking stick in one hand and a bunch of beaded bands on the other hand. I was amazed to see the spirit of that soul and her NEVER SAY DIE attitude.

I brought 2 pieces from her (not only out of respect) also because those were pretty enough pieces to buy just for 10 bucks. Out of curiosity when I enquired of her age, I found her as very amiable and high spirited women of 82. We got down on the same station and I could see the difficulty she was facing to even get down the train hence could imagine her entire day’s labor she does to survive.

She told me her name is Kamala ben Mehta. She was discarded by her family and she lives with her brother in his house for which she has to pay Rs 130 to him (and provided with one time meal). My intention of writing is only to spread the word around and to help her even in smallest possible way. Salute to her spirits!
