I recently visited CP and met two boys (shoe polishers) who really changed my outlook on things and made me appreciate the privilege that is education.
“Padhai sabse acchi cheez hoti hai. Hum subah subah padhai karte hai aur din mein kaam. Barahkhamba pe ek lady hame padhati hai. Woh mahiney ke 1000 rupaye leti hai padhaane ke aur hame achha lagta he ki hum apne khud ke kamaye hue paiso se padhte hai
(Education is the best thing. We study in the morning and work throughout the day. There’s a lady at Barahkhamba who teaches us. She takes Rs.1000 per month to teach us. It’s a proud feeling that we study off our own money.)

It’s wonderful knowing that the underprivileged youth have an understanding of the opportunities education could provide them with.

Help these guys out. Buy a pen you don’t need, a toy you probably won’t use, get your shoes polished, and give them a break. Some of these kids are genuinely in it to make something of themselves.

These guys don’t know what Facebook is but they were pretty excited that they’d be seen online sharing their views on the importance of education. That’s Prabhu on the left and Dildar on the right.
