Today I'll share with you some pictures of people that I clicked on holidays to various places. I sometimes put myself in their shoes and wonder what their day is like. They too have hopes. They probably have a family too. They will have a loved one who is thinking of them, waiting for them.
A fruit seller at Egypt
An Umbrella seller at Pune,India. I clicked this from inside my warm cozy car while he was out there in the rain selling such colourful umbrellas in wet, cold weather.
The Galabya traders on River Nile. They row their wares on a tiny boat and come very close to the ship and throw a rope and attach their boat to the ship.They kept calling out to the passengers on the Cruise. They were finally shooed away by the Captain of our ship.
The temple Musicians at Ernakulam, Kerala,India. They are talented and train for years to be able to play the way they do. Yet they are not very highly paid.
The vegetable sellers at a small village called Naraynpur near Pune, India.
A little boy selling paper windmills on Juhu beach, Mumbai, India
A seller of Sugarcane juice on the Highway near Panchgani, Maharashtra, India.
If you are reading this, it means you have access to Internet and chances are that you , like me, are definitely better off financially when compared to them. But what we need to think about is, are we happier? Are our lives truly richer?
Isn’t it memories full of moments, that make up life? A Sanskrit shloka says “Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.” Wise words indeed.
Live today well. Make your moments. Cherish them.
And if you have had a particularly nasty day, don’t worry—there’s always tomorrow to start afresh!
