She could have lived a life of a beggar like many others dwelling on the footpath. But her pride and self respect didn’t allow her to become that. She chose the difficult path. A big Salute to this woman who still runs her family at this age. A humble request to everyone who came across this post. If possible, instead of buying Lays from the nearby shops if we purchase something from her, which is surely worth its value, a family is being helped and it is in a way, a respect to her.
