These dirty hands had thousands of stories woven beautifully with happiness, tragedy, loss and every other feeling that one feels.
He started with how moving from Bangladesh to India had been, how they had to survive on just a meal per day and constantly were in search of shelter with his parents, to now where he is married to his beautiful wife and has two daughters and a son.
He told how he earns and tries to keep his little family happy. His two daughters also go to school, while saying this to me he said " Didi, i want both of them to become excellent doctors one day so that they can work for the citizens of this country if any conditions like corona comes in future."(These words won my heart)
He told how this lockdown had been pathetic for them, for he earned nothing during the entire lockdown period. Even now there isn't much work, but somehow he is managing to feed his children and wife.
He also told how he was saving some money this year to gift a beautiful saree to his wife this anniversary, but won't be able to because his savings were all used up during this entire lockdown.
While he kept telling me stories and continued his work, I took few pictures.
Seeing this picture he said, "These hands are dirty, but helps to bring the smile of those at my house."
