A Smile Spreads Happiness.

A Smile Spreads Happiness.

Today afternoon, when I was walking towards my home in a street, I witnessed an old man, sitting on a chair, sitting outside his shop, staring at me for a long time until I reached near to his shop. I felt as if he was going to eat me with his gaze but still I kept walking towards him. I simply smiled and folded my hands while saying, “Sat Shri Akal Uncle Ji”.

He smiled back and replied, “Sat Shri Akal Beta.”

Though I continued walking but I had a sense of pride on my smile. I took this act so seriously that as I passed the street and entered into a lane, I saw two Aunts sitting outside their house doing some chit chats. One of them started looking at me as long as I was walking towards them. I did nothing but smiled and said, “Namastey Aunty Ji”.

She smiled back and replied, “Namastey Putt, Ki haal aa?”

While giving answer to her question, I passed by her.
Few seconds later, she said, “Chai Pilayie Putt? (Shall we offer you a tea?)"
“Nai, Thank you Aunty”, I replied and kept walking towards my home.
(To be continued….)

Thank you for reading,
Rohit Sood.
