Hungry Eyes..!!

He was arranging the books in the shelves of the library. 
One by one he placed them neatly. 
He was not satisfied. 
He removed the books…dusted each one…and rearranged them.
One could see hunger in his eyes.
He had taken up this job to fulfil his family’s needs….
But deep inside…he wished…if he could read.

  1. @ Meera: Thanks.
    A friend of mine left his studies after 10th std, 'cos his dad passed away and he had to take care of his grandmom, mom and 3 younger sisters. This guy worked hard and now has joined Night college to study further. I met him few days back. This story was a result of that meeting.
