One Piece....




The train was late and there wasn’t much to do .

So they decided to give their taste buds a treat and ordered for chicken 65 from the cafeteria nearby .

Cracking jokes and enjoying latest bollywood songs on their smart phones , they munched on the hot spicy pieces when a bony piece popped up like an out caste and got discarded in the next instance

Hiding behind the pillar he was waiting for this moment , like a lightening flash he vanished with that discarded piece and ran to the other side of the platform to his younger bro waiting eagerly for him .

Beaming with joy the little urchin walked towards his brother and said “ Chotu let’s feast “ .

  2. Hi...Friends ,
    We have already covered the halfway path of the A-Z Challenge and believe me it has been an amazing experience :)
    Meeting new bloggers , interacting with them getting to read some awesome stuff as well as very different ones ....I think A-Z Challenge has been a blessing in disguise for many bloggers ...isn't it .

    Well I have been regularly following some blogs all through the challenge as I really enjoy reading their posts and get to learn new things from them.
    But for next few days I may not be able to do that wholeheartedly as I have to attend a Conference and would be out of station . Though I have scheduled my post for some days but the part I will really miss is reading your write ups . I would try to read them whenever I find time .

    You have bestowed lots of love on my blog in the previous days and I wish you do stop by my blog in the coming days too :)

    Thank you so much guys for your lovely comments and awesome posts that makes this blogging challenge so wonderful .

    Best Wishes
    Sushree....

  11. OMG, Sushree, you just stole my heart with this !
    There's nothing more painful than seeing someone eat out of the waste. Seriously. There's nothing more sinister than wasting food.
    With every morsel that we waste, we are earning the wrath of some hungry stomach !!
    Take a bow, Sushree !!

  12. This was perhaps the best so far....Loved the way you brought about the pain of poverty along with the shred of hope!

  13. The food that is 'outcaste' for one person is a treasure for another.
    Life is unfair, but it is hope that makes the poor and underprivileged look for every opportunity.
    All the best for the conference. Your thought-provoking posts will be missed, but work comes first.

  15. Yes, this is touching but the reality...On one side people starve, other side - corps go rotten in the warehouse..

  17. Honestly speaking, i must tell you that I thought that it was a dog, which took away the piece.. and my heart felt so burdened, knowing that it was a child.. how pathetic.. as sreeja has exactly mentioned.. it is painful..
