Kabaadiwaala

Today is Monday. He gets up early and sits with the heaps of newspapers that he had collected yesterday as kabaadiwaala, to make paper envelopes. He has to deliver them today in the market. People say, there’s a ban on polythene bags.

It’s 9:30 am already. He gets ready and keeps the arranged paper envelops in a cotton bag. Then hoists his school bag on his back and heads for the market, hoping to be on time for his school.


There are some problems in life but he is grateful  at least he has got his right to education.

Education is such a gift. Just yesterday my kids were complaining about having to go to school. I told them to be thankful. They are getting an education, something that no one can take from them, and until they are 18 relatively free of charge. If they want to go on to college, then they will have to pay for it. So I told them to count their blessings that they are entitled to 13 years of education. ♥

Tarang Sinha said...

Thank God:)

Tarang Sinha said...

You're absolutely right Kathy!

Hey that's lovely. He has such a positive approach. I wrote one The Right to Education too but I love the way you've told the story in such few words.

Tarang Sinha said...

Thank you very much!:)
