The Family.

One day while coming back from the seashore I saw a family consisting of a mother, a father and a small girl on the footpath. The small girl was sleeping peacefully and her parents were making garlands with jasmine flowers. Their condition was so poor that it raised many questions is my mind.They were wearing ragged clothes.But the wife and the husband were both laughing and smiling and were smoothly making the garlands. I thought that where would they be selling these garlands? That family looked peaceful and happy. I had the thought that I would take their photo and buy a garland from them.But neither could I take their photo nor could I buy a garland from them as the signal turned green and my auto went ahead at full speed. It simply amazed me that they were so poor yet so very happy.
