A story of a poor man in Lockdown time.

 

 This is the story of a poor labour man Billy. Who had come to town with his whole family to find work and earn money. His whole family spent their days working hard and laborious. He was one of those people who had to work daily to earn money. He could not manage to get food until hewent out on the streets to work. They were getting to eat by facing a lot of struggle every day.  After the hard laborious work of the day. He slept on the tenth house made at his footpath. One day when he was going out for his work, he saw that the road was deserted. There were no vehicles on the road and no man could be seen to the farthest distance. After moving a little ahead, billy watches and suddenly he gets hit by a stick. He gets terrified and turns around quickly and he sees that a police man is beating him with the stick. Sir oh sir please wait why are you hitting me sir.

           You're crazy fellow where are you roaming get lost from here don't you know we are under lockdown the whole nation is in curfew. If i see you again you will be beaten badly. But sir what is this lockdown and why is everything closed.



    Oh you crazy man which world are you living in there is a big pandemic named corona spreading everywhere if you go out of your home you may get this disease and die. Run and get lost from here god knows where do such crazy people come from. While saying so he again struck billy on his back with a stick. Poor and terrified billy ran and reached home then his family asked he told them that some pandemic is spreading due to which the nation is closed and we can't go to the streets.

    Then billy's son said but dad if we do not go out and sell something then how will we get food son but there is no one in the streets to whom. We could sell there are no people in the streets even to give arms
if this continues we will die starving poor billy begins to worry about what he can do now two days had passed and his family is suffering badly with hunger.

       His kids started to cry in hunger billy could not bear the grief of his family but he was so helpless that he could not do anything he doesn't even have money to buy a ration of two days for home and when he went out he could not even see a single man, who could give him any work unable to see his grieving family. he dares to go out even after being beaten by the police.

          Billy comes to know that the government is distributing russian for the poor so billy goes there but there he finds out that only those who have a russian card are being given russian. How can poor billy who doesn't even have a home could afford to have a russian card and aadhar card disappointed billy returns
from there. Then he comes to know that food is being distributed to the poor at some government school after arriving there somehow he saw a long queue of people.

    People are standing in the queue with food boxes and bags in their hand under extreme heat billy also stands behind them the queue is so long that it takes him five to six hours to get his turn. It's 3pm in the afternoon he is standing in the queue barefooted in extreme heat in the hope of getting some food and he can feed his starving children when his turn comes he gets to know that there was a huge crowd and while his turn came. The food was over poor billy's heart sank down. He sadly returns to his family while walking over the road he again gets caught by the policeman and the policeman says oh you crazy man can't you understand from the first warning why are you roaming on the roads.

      Sir sir you do one thing it's better that you kill me sir. My family is starving from past two. Three days my children are squirming out of hunger leave the food for eating we even do not have water to drink sir this pandemic will kill us or not i don't know sir but this hunger will definitely kill us. I can't see my family dying so it's better that you kill me sir. Billy starts crying loudly after saying this the police man feels pity for him and he gives him his food and some other items and sends him to his family friends poverty is a problem in our country and this corona pandemic has come to our country and due to this lockdown the poor are not even getting two meals a day leave food they do not even have a house to live friends lockdown is not equal for everyone. If possible try to help all those people who are under problem as much as possible from your side robert was a poor but talented worker. He used to live with his wife kelly and daughter rachel robert worked very hard to survive kelly was a very intelligent woman that was the reason they were very happy even with very little money.

       julie's exams were starting in a few days daddy my exams are starting next month. Okay dear do your best daddy what would you gift me if i get first rank in class. If you get first frank in the class then i will take you to a hotel for your birthday and buy you a dosa, okay yay now i will definitely get the first rank robert was really happy to see her excited face at that moment kelly enters. Why did you have to say something like this she will get her hopes high. I have saved some money that would be enough don't worry about it i will take care of everything robert started doing extra work and started earning more somehow he arranged to save 200 rupees. His daughter's exam result was next month and her birthday was the next day
from it on the day of the result rachel got ready in the morning and went to school she came back with a big smile on her face.

   Robert asked rachel why is my princess so happy today did you get the first rank in the class yes daddy, how did you know a father always knows everything. Daddy now you have to take me to a hotel for a treat, yes why not we will go tomorrow ok now i have to go to work robert goes back to work and applies for relief for the next day and takes his daughter to a hotel waiter can you show me the menu card. Yes sir here you go thank.
         You robert was shocked to see the price of dosa on the menu card which was 150 rupees but he wanted to fulfill his daughter's wishes waiter can you come here please yes sir what's your order can you bring us one dosa with some chutney and sambar. Yes sir anything else that's enough after the waiter leaves robert checks the 200 rupees in his pocket and puts it back at that moment the man sitting next to them sees this after some time the waiter serves them the dosa.  Daddy this is just one dosa you did not order for yourself. Actually your mother has prepared some food for me i will eat that only you eat your dosa , okay daddy.




The young man alan sitting next to them was watching all of this what a father he came to the hotel for his daughter's happiness and he isn't eating anything because he doesn't have money. I got the first rank in exams and now i'm eating dosa as well yes my princess all your wishes should come true and stay happy always. That's all we wish for now don't waste time and finish your dosa, thank you.

    Daddy the dosa is really delicious you should also eat some you eat it. I'm not feeling well i will eat at home only okay watching this allen got emotional. He went to the hotel's counter and told the manager take this money and get that man a dosa. If he asks just tell them that it is free from the hotel. Okay yes i'll do it but what happened.

     Why are you paying their bill allen tells everything to the manager take your money back sir we will
celebrate her birthday nicely everything will be from the hotel don't worry about it the manager orders another dosa for their table watching this robert gets shocked sir i haven't ordered this dosa please take this back.

Sir the dosa is from the hotel you enjoy it. Sir i don't want to eat this dosa here i will take this home and will share this with my wife can you pack this please no sir this is for you. We have packed more for you to take home. You eat here only, thank you sir robert and rachel eat the dosa with great enjoyment and go to the manager to pay for it. What are you doing everything is free for you today from the hotel it's a special treat but why your daughter got the first rank in school and today is her birthday too, that's why and take these sweets as well give them to all the children nearby celebrate your birthday nicely. Thank you sir it's because of you that i can celebrate my daughter's birthday nicely why are you thanking me now go home and celebrate your daughter's birthday yes sir now i will leave robert happily came back with a joyful mood see kelly what our daughter got today huh where did you get all these things robert tells everything to kelly you

    There was a farmer named gary one day he was working in his farm suddenly he found a pot full of gold in the field. Which was filled with gold coins oh pot of gold. I am so lucky katie will be so happy when i'll show her but just as he thinks about katie he feels a little scared no no if i tell katie she will spread the news to the entire village we found a part of gold in our farm we found a pot of gold in our farm oh my god no no this should not happen but how will i hide this from katie.

     I cannot take this big part all alone i will have to find a solution gary then covered the pot with soil and reached home thinking about that matter today you're home early i'm feeling hungry serve the food quickly katie served the food but gary was not focusing on eating uh katie i'm not hungry. I will go to the market that's very strange just now you said you were hungry? are you okay? Yes yes, i'm fine i'll be back late you have your dinner and go to sleep gary then goes to the market he buys some fish and some cans of red color. He goes to his farm with those things i should get to work now gary now mixes the red color in water and waters the farm with it and then he spreads the fish all over the farm. Hmm no it's fine that night he reaches his home very late oh she's asleep katie katie get up katie. I have to tell you something oh, come fast. What happened you came very late today ? there is something come with me to the farm right now it's late night let's go in the morning no kitty let's go right now. It has rained in our farm how is this possible it did not rain. Here sky is also clear oh dear that is the point. It has rained only in our farm and that too not an ordinary rain it was rain of fish.

      There are plenty of fish in our farm which dropped from the sky fish rain are you feeling okay. I'm absolutely fine kitty now come with me with the lantern in their hand they both reached the farm see katie this wasn't an ordinary rain. It was raining red from the sky i have filled this water in a pot when katie saw fish all over the farm. She was astonished, she could see red spots here and there in the farm. Oh yes there are so many fishes spread here. How did this happen this looks like a miracle let's take the pot filled with water home but this is a secret and so don't tell this to anyone. Why will i tell anyone with katie's help gary brings home the pot filled with gold next morning
before katie wakes up gary hit the board in the courtyard of his home. When katie woke up she came to gary asking about the pot listen where have you kept the pot pot which part the one we brought from our farm last night some of the neighbors hear katie  talking.
     They all come near and gather around asking her about the pot pot which part did you find a pot of gold what is in the park did you find a treasure, oh no no there is nothing of that kind. She must have dreamed last night. I haven't dreamt anything why do you lie. We brought a big bot last night from our farm yesterday night, yes yesterday night.
      You know yesterday trained very heavily in our farm but yesterday it didn't rain here that is the point. It rained only in our farm and that too was not an ordinary rain. It rained red water from sky and you know plenty of fish also dropped from the sky on our farm
the pot was filled with that red water only and everybody started laughing when katie said this. The rain of fish is this really possible. He has really gone mad sister you must have had some dream come let's go we wasted our time fish rain crazy women oh oh please stop i'm telling the truth oh it really rained fish in our farm. Now you please say something i told you. You must have had some dream now let it go kitty.
