I have the greatest respect for people who earn their bread everyday. I mean the people like street hawkers, fruit and vegetable sellers and street jugglers and madaris. They have no idea what the day has in store for them and whether they would earn sufficient to feed their loved ones. Yet they leave in the morning full of hopes. They have big hearts indeed. Some time ago I had posted a poem of mine -Khilone Wala - that explored the thoughts of a khilone wala selling clay toys in this age of computers. Here is a poem about a madari and his monkey. On a hot summer day, a tired madari and his monkey seek shelter under a peepul tree. Thoughts of madari as he looks at his tiny companion are depicted in this poem.I hope you would enjoy it and appreciate the lovely illustration by Garima Saxena - Rajiv K. Saxena
