Smile, an everlasting smile!!!

A smile, as we all know, is something we can wear and always look good. There is something about a smile that actually makes you want to smile along.....

Was dining with a group of friends one mid-summer evening. At the adjacent table was a family of three mother, her daughter and son and a lady who looked like she was employed as domestic help. The girl looked like she was 14 and the boy 10 or thereabouts. The lady smiled at us politely in an attempt to start a conversation.

My friends did the honors of talking to her and I was just amused by the girl, you know the regular school girl with a boy cut, buck teeeth, pale pink complexion and a charming smile that started with one ear and went all the way to the other. It was a smile that said she didnt have a care in the world. Her mother told us it was their exams-are-over-so-we-get-to-see-a-movie kinda outing. They were kinda late and the service was pretty slow. When the food actually arrived they gobbled it up in a hurry. The lady instructed the domestic help to take the girl down and she would follow with her son.

We were all surprised to see the maid carry the girl in her arms and take her down. The girl was paralysed from waist down. Maybe tells the cynic in us that in the childs heart there's a lot of joy.... inspite of the pain.
