The Little "BIG" Man........!!!!!
I was just leaving the hospital today after OPD hours and this is what I saw.....a little fellow waiting for his turn to show his little sibling to the doctor . He reminded me so much of Neelav......same age .......a time where all boys of this group must be either playing on play stations or out in the ground. This little fellow was here in the hospital trying to manage his little sister who was getting cranky and impatient on his back......I stopped and came to know that he left his sick mother at home and as of now is practically running the show at home.......looking after his mom and sister and also doing the other works. Stories like this is not unusual in some parts of the villages here.....but when you happen to see with your own eyes.......things hit you hard and the realities come in front of you. To some responsibilities come earlier than you expect.....but life has to go on......and this little "BIG" guy was taking it on his shoulder with a big smile. I learnt a lesson from him .......and thought about all the things I take for granted in life.
