Life In A Train !!!!!!!

One Fine Sunny Day Me & My Friends Visited Fashion Street And On Our Way Back Home Boarded Borivilli Local. We Wanted Few Earrings, But Didn't Find Suitable One's In Fashion Street. 

Luckily A Young Girl  Boarded The Same Train And Was Selling Beautiful Earrings. We All Purchased Selected Earrings Which Was Rs.5/- For Each. 

After Purchasing Few Hangings, My Friend Asked, Whether She Has Few More Collections.....Then, She Said How She Leads Her Life Being An Orphan. Here Is Her Real Life Story :- 

I'm Reshma. I Am Also A Young Girl Like You All. I Am Just 20Years Old. I Am Orphan. I Don't Have Anybody To Take care of Me. I Lead My Life By Selling Hangings, Studs, Mobile Covers, And Many More Matching's. How Much Ever Goods I Sell, I Buy Only Those Many Goods & Re-sell Them. With Great Difficulty I Get One Time Food. I Sleep On Railway Platforms. Regular Local Train Travelers Give Me Clothes And Sometimes Even Food To Eat. I Get Very Less Amount To Save As Pocket Money. But, I'm Happy With What I Have. And God Is There To Take care of Me. He Has Given Me Enough Difficulties To Withstand Myself And He Has Given Enough Strength To Lead MY Life All Alone. Though I'm Illiterate, He Has Given Me Skills To Buy & Sell These Earrings. We Noticed Uncontrollable Tears In Her Eyes. 

I Kept Observing Her Skills Of Selling, Her Movements, Interactions Attracted Many Customers. I Prayed God Let Her Life Be Blessed With Colors of Joy, Happiness And Let Her See The Real Success of Her Hard work. 

Let's Just Imagine Leading A Life In This City, Where The Life Is Fast....Sleepless Life, Joyless Days & Nights....Trains Start At 4am And Ends By 2am. Just 2hrs Gap For Motormen. Though, There Are Rotational Shifts, How Difficult It Is To Keep Handling The Same Technical Operations ? If The Office Opens At 9am, People Leave Their House By 6.30am. To Catch A Bus From Their Area To Reach Local Railway Station And From That Station To Another Station, A Local Train And Again Getting Down And Boarding A Bus To Reach The Office. Have To Use All Types of Transport Facilities. Rickshaws, Buses, Trains, Taxis. 

So My Thought Was, When Many of Us Keep Complaining of Getting Tired With All The Comfortably Leading Life, How Will This Young Girl of 20yrs of Age, Manage Herself On The Railway Platform ?? Its Really Toughest & Amazing. At last She Said, This Train Is My Native! Its Really Painful To Hear Her History. May God Bless This Young Girl. I Had Met This Girl In 2009. Hats off To Reshma.
