A Child Salesman

When children work for their daily bread, they inevitably lose their child-like innocence and spontaneity, don’t they?

On 31 March 2019, however, on my way home from work in the Delhi Metro, I was happy to find an exception. See the photo below.

This child worked and played at the same time. He was cool and confident while selling children’s puzzle books and toys. He didn’t sound desperate, and he managed to make some quick sales within those 30 minutes he spent inside the Metro’s ladies’ compartment.

While the girls looked at all the different options available and tried to make a choice, the boy swinged himself in a carefree manner on the metro railings on top. Just like any other normal child free to dream and play whenever he wanted.

May God bless this kid. I hope and pray that he grows up to be a successful and happy adult…
