My Story: We People Are Too Lucky Who Enjoy All The Luxuries Of Life

I am working in Mindspace in Navi Mumabai(Airoli) which is house of big IT companies like Accenture,L&T,Capgemini,Wipro etc. About 15000-20000 IT engineers work here with handsome packages.

On Friday,when I was going towards office I saw a child of about 12-14 years old sitting outside road of Mindspace. He was shoe shiner and was asking every person going in front of him to stop and make their boot polish from him.

As everyone was in hurry to the office, every one snubs him. As I passed that child, I noticed he was crying as no one was stopping. Looking at him I stopped there and asked him to polish my shoes and while crying he started polish. Courageously,when I asked the reason why he was crying.

He said (Ghar mei meri maa or sirf main hun,ghar ka kharcha nai chalta, sirf 50-60 ka dhandha hota hai roj). He is the only child living with his mother and he only earns 50-60 Rs per month”.

We people are too lucky who enjoys all luxuries of life like mobile,internet,food to eat,house to live.We waste so much money in things even we don’t need. But unfortunately there are so many people living in poverty with lack of water,food,proper sanitation and other necessary amenities of life.

This child is one of those people. At his age it would have been easy for him to beg, but instead he has chosen for hardwork. I request all people who works at mindpace make your shoes polish from him even just a once week, it will be great help for him.
