Do you think you are poor?? Look around and think again.
Till some years back, I used to think that I am a common person who has a normal life, who cannot think of great heights in life and also poor. There were times when I thought that going into a fancy restaurant and having food was rich people thing. Maybe many people have the same thought. But somewhere in my life I found that I was a blind person.
I always thought about myself and my life. When I started to observe my surroundings I realized how blessed I am. I have seen people experience difficult things, people struggling to survive and experiencing difficulties because of their caste and other reasons.
I experienced the love and care of my parents from the day I was born, there are people who haven’t experienced that. I never had to beg for food, where I have experienced people asking me to buy them food because they can’t afford it.I have a job, there are many who struggle to get an income. I have a roof over my head, a good and safe place I can live. And there are also homes with the size of a cabin where 7 to 8 people live, there are many people struggling to survive the cold night and sleeping on concrete floors. When I was in Delhi, me and my cousin slept with a bunch of homeless people in the railway station entrance on a January night.it’s really difficult to complete the night in that cold. Most people didn’t have a proper blanket. I never had to work under the burning sun where there are people who sell things in traffic signals.
If everyone looks into their own life and the different lives around them, I am 100% sure that life will be a lot better. And if you ever think that you don’t have anything, remember there are people who suffer more and be thankful for what you have.
