It was late in the night,he was another salesman on the red light signal. A boy of around 10 years selling devil headbands-the cheap variety ones.
Took his photograph when he knocked on car’s window..he smiled,he posed..the gleam in his eyes,the smile on his face expressed his emotions filled with hope. Didn’t want to buy the headband,offered him some money. he refused,he insisted on selling. The price was marginally higher than the amount which I had offered him..He made his point very well-not a beggar,just trying to earn living…
Though I never wanted to buy but ended up in buying the headband,don’t know what to do with it..may be keep it on my table as a reminder of the boy who was proud of what he was doing.
