Effect of Poverty In Lives – OS

A man who looks little old rings the bell of a house. After several minutes the door is opened by a boy.

” Come in uncle. I’ll tell dad that you have come ”

The man enters the house. The boy runs inside screaming to his father . His father comes out .

” Why are you here at this time brother? ”

” Nothing special.. I just came to see you all. ”

He gives a gift to the boy..

” This is for you”

The boy takes it politely and thanks him. His father asks ,

” How’s your wife and child? ”

The man glanced at him as to question why he asked that question. He gets thinking.

” How can we stay happy when our second child is with you? Hopefully the only son I have doesn’t know this. He calls his own brother as cousin! I can’t help it. How can I ? I’m not that much rich to feed two children and that’s the only reason why I had to do this sin.. I love both my children equally but when one of them calls me uncle… He doesn’t know the truth … ”

The other man asks ,

” What happened to you? Is everything alright? ”

” Ye..yes… They are fine . I must leave now” . He make a rapid glance at the boy and goes towards the door to leave.

” But you just came ”

” I have some important work to do ”

He rushes out..

” Can anyone understand my pain ? My own so calls me uncle. For him , my brother is his father . He respects him not me. Why does everything depend on money ? Why ? I can never get away from this truth . I can never live peacefully.. ” Small drops of tears comes out of his eyes.
