This man doesn’t know how to speak in English, can call you at 6 in the morning over a Facebook profile picture and is always concerned about the “family honour”.
But there is no denying the fact that if this man would not have been there, I now would have been cooking meals for some male-chauvinistic husband of mine in some remote village of Bihar rather than writing this blog over here.
He started working at the age of 12.
An age when we were watching cartoons.(at least I was.) And although he could not manage to get “modern” like most of us,
But made sure that his children get a chance to do so.
Now this lady..
Although it’s quite hypocritical for someone like me to write this,
But while I constantly complain about her not being so open-minded, I forget to realise that she did all she could to eventually get me to become sensible enough to resent her conservativeness.
(Not that I have surprisingly started loving her, but that’s just a fact even I can not deny.)
(Can’t insert the pictures.)
But I know some people who give tutions to support themselves while I plan my next trip or hunt for a new pair of shoes on an online store. I know some of us who are battling their way out of depression but always wink at others with a smile, some who have had terrible heartbreaks but still believe in love, some who hate even looking at themselves, but still show up everyday and some who are always there to make it a little easier for the others.
They are all heroes.
It obviously takes a significant amount of heroism to stare back at life and letting it know that you ain’t gonn’a give in.
So, While idiots like me are busy finding bigger meanings, and fantasising about doing something really great in life, they are the ones who actually do it.
They are the unheroic heroes who never get recognised, never have a following count in several K’s, but silently in their “not so great” lives, they make a “really great” difference.
While we brag about how much we hate being average, they are the ones who remain average all their lives but actually are the real heroes.
So next time you find someone average or not that great!!
You may find an untold story of heroism.
