Hi, guys! Today I thought I should talk about something different from my usual posts, something more serious and something that needs awareness.
Recently, I came across a video on #Fame. So, what happens in this video is the #Famestars empathised with the street-dwellers and vendors who are bound to stay on the roads throughout the day in this scorching summer. They Felt the Heat and understood how it feels to be in the sun, drenching in sweat, burning the skin just to earn something, no matter how small the amount is to make a living.
On 26th May 2016, the #Famestars decided to live the life of those who make their living on the roads of India, under the bare sky in this intolerable heat. Some of them sold flowers on the streets, some took over the street-food shops, some played the roles of labourers etc.
In our usual day-to-day lives, we see a lot of people around us who are street-bound just to make a living. The ignore the weather, not matter how hot or cold it is. Their life never stops for anything. Nothing is actually an obstacle for them just because they can’t indulge in luxury. We, despite being in all kind of comforts around just, are just ignorant of everything that happens outside the four walls. We come across several people on the roads- flower vendors, labourers, rickshawalas, food vendors, dabbawalas, cobblers with makeshift workstations, we feel bad about them and then we forget. In reality, we cannot do anything for them. They have chosen this job and they do earn by the end of the day. The only thing we can do for them is to show some compassion. The next time you buy something from a street vendor,
In reality, we cannot do anything for them. They have chosen this job and they do earn by the end of the day. The only thing we can do for them is to show some compassion. The next time you buy something from a street vendor, do not bargain insensibly. They deserve some tips too. If you come across an old person, sitting with a basket full of flowers, buy a rose or your favourite flower. A rose definitely costs less than an unfeigned smile. Whenever you ride a rickshaw, offer him water. Remember, it is the small things that make a difference. We are nothing without them.
So, what do you think? Can you #FeelTheHeat?
It is a #Givingweek at #Fame.
