For her, age is just the number. Who says the age of retirement is 58?? The age of wrinkled face Shila Ghosh is 85, but she is young enough to leave any youth startled with awe.
In this fast pacing world, Its very common to see young peoples outside temples, railway stations, traffic signals stretching there palms to beg for money instead of working in spite of having all healthy limbs. It’s very easy to give up, to beg and earn without any effort, especially for the woman who has lost her only son in a devastating car trash. But Shila Ghosh has proved her mettle. No matter how harsh the life is on her, she has kept her self-esteem and self-respect intact and she maintains livelihood of her family by selling chips and snacks on a pavement outside Haldirams outlet, at Exide, Kolkata. Even At the pale age of 85, this superwoman is inspiration for all who give up easily infront of life’s difficulties and restore to begging. For her age is just the number, as Her heart is ever young and her determination unparalleled. Such people shows light to sun and Logical Indians feels very proud to share their story with all.
