Colourful lehengas, beautiful bangles, tinkling anklets, glorified traditional bore, this female has all sorts of jewelleries which make her look like a royal queen of some kingdom. However, the wrinkles on her face speak a different story. And then there is an evergreen smile on her face, which makes you feel that there is a hidden story of agony and pain behind this smile.
Every day I meet her…We talk, we talk about vegetables, about their prices, about the weather and what not!
Yeah, because she sells vegetables right next to my place.
I have seen her braving the deadliest of summers, the scorching sun, the harsh humidity and these days, I am watching her battling the rains.
But she has been the same; with her radiating smile, the wooing charisma, the beautiful dressing sense, she has been appealing all.
In summers, when temperature was soaring high to 45-46 degree celsius and we preferred to pack ourselves in AC rooms, I have seen this female standing with her cart under a tree shade. Once she showed me how the harsh heat rash is affecting her body.
I could see the prickly heat covering her body all over, but, yet again, there were no complaints. A smile was still there on her face and I was wondering how a person can smile in so much pain.
I have been brought up listening to the tales of Rajput women who are known the world over for their bravery, valour and sacrifice for the well-being of their kingdom and families.
Here, I am watching a Rajput female, full of life, fighting the challenges of everyday life, to make her two ends meet!
Irrespective of the weather woes, I have seen her reporting daily for her duty; and her marketing skills are excellent too; she always prefers giving you something extra, with an appealing smile, which can’t resist you to come to her the next day!
We work in the best firms, draw handsome salaries and still have loads of grudges against our surroundings.
Don’t you think this female stands tall as an inspiration for one and all?
Let’s salute the spirit of this women and take some lessons from her to live a quality life by learning her art of living happily.
