The Samosa Vendor



The Samosa Vendor


At bombay...It was my regular train journey home from work.
I boarded the 18:50pm train from Church Gate.
When the train was about to leave Marinelines,
A samosa vendor with an empty basket got on and took the seat next to me. As the compartment was sparsely occupied and my destination was still far away I got into a conversation with him.

Me: "Seems like you've sold all your samosas today."
Vendor (smiling): "Yes. By Almighty's grace, full sales today."

Me: "I really feel sorry for you people. Don't you get tired doing
This tiresome job the whole day?"

Vendor: "What to do, sir? Only by selling samosas like this every day do
We get a commission of 1 rupee for each samosa that we sell."

Me: "Oh, is that so ? How many samosas do you sell on an average each day?"
Vendor: "On peak week days, we sell 4,000 to 5,000 samosas per day.
On an average, we sell about 3,000 samosas a day."

I was speechless.....for a few seconds.
The guy says he sells 3,000 samosas a day; at  1 rupee each,
He makes about 3,000 rupees daily, or 90,000 rupees a month.
That's Rs. 90,000 a month. OMG.
I intensified my questioning and this time it was not for time pass.

Me: "Do you make the samosas yourself?"
Vendor: "No Sir. we gets the samosas through a samosa manufacturer. And we just sell them. After selling we give him the money. And gives us 1 rupee for each samosa that we sell."

I was unable to speak a single word more but the vendor continued...
"But one thing...most of our earnings are spent on living expenses here at Bombay. Only with the remaining money are we able to take care of other business."

Me: "Other business? What is that?"
Vendor: "It is a land business. In 2007 I bought 1.5 acres in Palghar for 10 lakh rupees and I sold it a few months back for 80 lakhs. Now I have bought land in umroli for 40 lakh rupees."

Me: "What did you do with the remaining amount?
Vendor: "Of the remaining amount, i have set aside 20 lakhs for my daughter's wedding. I have deposited the other 20 lakhs in the bank, post office, mutual funds, gold and bought cash back insurance."

Me: "How much schooling have you had?"
Vendor: "I studied up to third standard;
I stopped my studies when I was in the 4th standard. But I know how to read and write.
Sir, there are many people like yourself,
Who dress well, wear a tie and suit, wear shoes,
Speak English fluently and work in air-conditioned rooms. But I don't think you guys earn as much
As we do wearing dirty clothes and selling samosas."

At this point, what could I reply. After all, I was talking to a True Indian Millionaire! The train chugged into khar station

And the samosa vendor got up from his seat.
Vendor: "Sir, this is my station...have a good day."
Me: "Take care."

workers not true

One person asked a question to Guru


My workers not true to me.

My children, wife and entire world is very selfish.

No body is correct

Guru smiled and told a story.

In one village there a room with 1000 mirrors.
One small girl used to  go inside and play.

Seeing thousands of children around her she was joyful.

She would clap her hands and all the 1000 children would clap back.
She considered this place as the world's happiest place and visit often.

This same place was visited by a sad person.

He saw around him thousands of angry men.

He got scared and raised his hands to hit them and in return 1000 hand lifted to hit him back.

This is the worst place in the world thought the sad man and left that place.

This world is also a room with more than 1000 mirrors.

What we let out of us is what the society gives it back to us.

Keep your heart like a child , pure, honest and joyful and this world will be a heaven for you - said the Guru.

1 Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya:
A National Mission
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools plays a significant role in determining the health of children,
attendance, dropout rate, and learning outcomes. The provision of water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in
school secures a healthy school environment and protects children from illness and exclusion. It is a first step
towards a healthy physical learning environment, benefiting both learning and health. Children who are
healthy and well-nourished can fully participate in school and get the most from the education being imparted.

Capacity Building
In 2014, The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India launched ‘Swachh Bharat
Swachh Vidyalaya’ (SBSV) initiative to ensure that all schools in India have access to separate functional toilets
for boys and girls. The initiative also has its emphasis on promoting safe and appropriate hygiene practices in
schools and behavior among children.
The Swachh Vidyalaya initiative has defined the essential elements of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools
which are categorized under Water, Sanitation, Handwashing with Soap, Operations and Maintenance,
Behavior Change Activities and Capacity Building.
It is required that the components of this basic minimum package are commonly understood and used by
all schools as a means to achieve desired service levels in water, sanitation and hygiene practices. Following
the launch of the initiative, the state, district and local governments as well as schools across the country
have significantly improved sanitation facilities in schools. They are striving to improve access and have
introduced child friendly designs, maintenance practices, effective monitoring using ICT tools, behavior
change communication, new financing options and forging partnerships.
These good practices need to be recognized and shared for accelerating and sustaining the achievements of
the Swachh Vidyalaya initiative.
Schools are an established entry point for learning. They present an opportunity to
engage parents and community in general, either through knowledge dissemination
via children or through direct engagement and demonstration at the school. Children
are fast learners and adapt their behaviour more easily than adults. Children are also
effective role models. They may question existing practices in their households and
choose to demonstrate good hygiene. What they learn at school is likely to be passed
on to their peers and siblings, and to their own children if they become parents.
