Today, I was visiting a couple of my friends, now days it's becoming a rare occasion. While returning I saw an old man, typical lower middle class old man. What he said to me next didn't make me eat my dinner. The poor old man said to me "Annen, kongam idly vangi thariya ?". This translates into "(elder) Brother, would you so kind as to buy me some idli's ?" I was on the phone and paid no attention to him at first. It took a second to grasp what he meant. I felt so phucked up. Although I kept on walking, I glanced back to look at him. He stood there, in the middle of the rain, looking with despair. I didn't bring my purse, luckily for him I found a Rs.10 note in my pocket, I ran back to give it to him. The look in his said almost said it all, he lost as though he won a lottery, he said he had no words to thank me. But I couldn't listen and started walking.
