Auto driver’s happiness
What comes to your mind when you think of an auto driver.
A lazy guy dressed in kaakhi brown. He has no respect for age or money! Always asking for 20 rupees extra. Always having a sad look on his face!
Yes! You got it right! Most of the auto drivers are like this only.
But have you ever seen an auto guy who takes school kids to and fro daily?
In fact I have traveled in one such auto when I went to school.
He safely transports the innocent kids between home and school!
He always has a smile on his face when he picks up the kid!
And if a child offers toffees for his birthday, Mr. Auto driver will be super happy.
He will be so proud, as though he was given Padma Vibhushan.
And why shouldnt he be happy…
For the kids, he is more than “Just another Auto Driver”.
He is their king. He drives their chariot.
The kids tell him about the fight they had, the new friend they found, the marks the got etc. He is “the man” for them.
He is the first to receive the news from the kids. He is so proud about their marks!
He is so proud, that he boasts about it. He thinks it is his marks and feels extremely happy about it! π
It is the auto driver, who teaches them to share. To share the seat with 10 other kids in a jam packed “Chariot!”
He is the guy, to whom the kids show their new colour pencils and crayons.
He is also the judge who solves all their fights!
Indeed, he is more than an auto driver!!
I am sure he wont be earning a lot! Probably he is suffering from shortage of money!
But when he wakes up, he will wake up thinking about the bright and shining
faces of the his innocent looking kids. He wakes up, thinking about his own “band!”.
He wakes up in the morning excited about his work!
Do you wake up in the morning excited about your work?
