She taught me

"I need cakes", the kid was wailing. Kid's mother gives one rupee coin to baker.

"Give any biscuit"

The baker takes a single laddoo. I turned my back, as I tried ignoring.

Surprised, as the baker mentioned, giving three boxes of pastries, "Mother! She has paid for you"

He points out my wife standing outside.

@ Shilpa!
u the pioneer who has incited me to write down these stories; keep looking for more. Thnaks Shilpa :)

@ Pawan!
Sad that I'm unable to make you understand. Pawan! this small story is based on my anecdote happened few months back. We were visiting a bakery to buy cakes for my daughter. That time, there came a lady with her child (anyone can judge their poverty). The child was longing for all costliest sweets that her mother cannot afford. At one point, I noticed that my wife has bought some cakes and other pastries for that child and dropped in the counter. This has happened so spontaneous that I felt guilty for not doing the same before my wife could do.

Next time, I'll try to make it more clear Pawan! :)
