When I was wandering through the streets of Bangalore, This man caught my attention instantly.
He was not just another fruit-seller. Unlike any other street side vendor, he was an artist too. He spent his free times, perfecting his craft. When I saw him, he was doing portraits. Then I wanted to do his portrait too.
This guy makes and sells Samosas on his bicycle. As I was walking aimlessly, met this guy. In fact he stopped seeing someone walking with a camera, and wanted a picture taken. The picture was taken, conversations were exchanged. And we were about to leave. Then this guy stopped after a few meters and returned to give me a free samosa! I am getting lessons on kindness from totally unexpected places for sure.
There is a machine standing tall, near him. It is the Delhi Weighing machine. Funny is the name as it’s got no connection with Delhi. Though it does two jobs of weighing and measuring height. And he charges 2 rupees for a person. Hundreds of people walk past, noticing everything except him and the machine. Out of which one might notice him on his lucky day. On a luckier day he might get a 50 rupees. On one such a lucky day, when given 20 rupees he rejected and returned it, saying he’s got no change. Still there are people for whom honesty comes first than anything else.
