People that you should have thanked but probably never did

We are all contributing to society in some way or the other but these are the people who deserve our gratitude but we have been too busy in filling the void of our empty lives that we choose to ignore the tremendous service they are doing for the society.

Street Vendors

 Not all of us can relish the cholesterol and fat infested food served by  the self-proclaimed inexpensive fast food joints that burn a deep hole in our pockets and hearts(literally), enter the saviors with their ‘Amritsari Naans’ and ‘Chole Kulcheys’, feeding the common man since don’t know when. We express our heartiest gratitude. 


Carrying the country’s baggage is an arduous task to take care of, you can observe these thin figurines carrying shitload of luggage on their heads and compensated with scorn and inadequate earnings.


As you leave your humble abode and step out on the streets , did you ever notice or felt that you owe heaps of gratitude to someone who has glorified  your morning by ridding you of the stench that sprawled  your neighborhood and streets. Yes, that man/woman with the broom, humming folklore in bereft tones is the person you should thank for doing what he/she does.


You owe your good night sleep to this guy, patrolling the streets while you’re snoring away comfortably in your beds, he’s the unsung hero, protector of the night and has probably saved you from multiple savage attacks. Think about it and thank him the next time you see your watchman.


It’s pretty ironic that how sad the life of a joker is , while all they try to do is to spread smiles  while life is strangulating their joys. We’re all pretty much aware of their condition, the least we can do is to be thankful for being there and taking up the responsibility to make the world a happier place.


With inadequate pay and adequate public humiliation they serve you with an ever-present smile on their face , they are treated as  social pariahs by the society(us) . Thank you Sirs! You’re doing a commendable job.
