I really don’t know, from my observation, she ‘ll be 80 years old. Yes ,You are right she is an elderly person. Always wears a dull pink Saree, which looks so dirty everytime.There are many interesting thing in her, one among them is, she don’t even have single tooth in her mouth which I admires the most! She has got wrinkles on her face and her skin is not either fair or dark, but browny! Her smile is just vibrent. She used to wear a small gold studs, which are indeed sparkling!
(One minute… Actually I forgot to tell one thing that, she is a beggar. I don’t want anyone to know her as such. That’s why didn’t mention it before.)
She used to come to my home asking money, I always tells her that, you should not beg like this, you should do some work and earn for yourself. Every time her reply will be,I am old now, I can’t do things, I feel so low after working. That time I feel really very bad, so I used to give her some food and some bucks.
And she is a fortune teller! Too. She can foretell people’s future, with that she can earn. But the thing is people has no more belief in her words. She used to tell these things to me. I like her…so, no other go I used to give my hands to her.. only to console her.
There is always a question to her from myself like..when are you going to give your studs to me? Cheeeeees..😉 as she consider me as her daughter. Always she tells like, of course this is only for you. I am saving it for your marriage! That time, this stone like heart of mine melts like anything!
Though she is old but she is bold too! Inspite of having two sons she used to beg for her survival, which is dreadful! I am not blaming every son here , but there are sons who don’t even care about their parents. Here I believe in Karma..”what you did ,that will return to you”. Do Good, be good.
You know what? She don’t even remember her name, so I gave her a one Kuyil. She cried that moment and that emotion ended with a great laughter!
I wish, I could bring some changes in the lives of many Kuyil like her!
