I was travelling by bus and there was this old lady with a lot of luggage besides me. Gujarati's are very friendly people. Just a smile and "kem cho! (how are you) will start the conversation. We talked through the entire 5 hour journey.
To my surprise she was so intrested in knowing the ways and means of youth, instead of criticising them. She had lived in a small village her entire life and only studied till 8th grade but god, she was a woman of wisdom. She is the first female entrepreneur from her village and her 6 years old start-up "small scale Khakhra industry" is already soaring high. She talked about how ambitious the females there are and with just some help to curb their social inhibitions, they make the best team.
I wonder the fire to do something and the desire to be something prevails in every women. Sometimes you get lucky to get a push to let your fire burn while sometimes you have a hard time finding the fuel.
I could not click a picture with her as I was so engrossed in talking. All I could manage was this "blue-bag-silk-saree" souvenir as we parted our ways. Talking with her made my day. Food for soul. #amateur#armaturephotography#India#peopleofIndia#instagram#foodforsoul
You solve it as you get older, when you reach the point where you've tasted so much that you can somehow sacrifice certain things more easily, and you have a more tolerant view of things like possessiveness and a broader acceptance of the pains and the losses.- Ted Hughes
