The insightful Boy

The boy was a rag picker when I first saw him as I witnessed him picking up some of the garbage around the waterfall somewhere between Mussoorie. While I was busy clicking my friends this little boy stood up besides me and was curious about my camera. We pause for a second looking to each others eyes and i continued clicking the surroundings ignoring him. He spoke up "Bhaiya isse acha photo upar milega" and I again take a look at the boy still standing beside me with his garbage bag. I asked his name he said "Shiva". Then the conversation started and we both share some of the information about ourselves. I asked him do you get money by picking up this grabage, He said "nahi" then my mind fell into the curiosity of why the kid is picking up the rags I further enquired about him and he told the whole saga. He lives nearby the waterfall where hundereds of people visits daily and and throw their waste in the water bodies.. He said I this place is my home and I don't want it to be dirty the boy melted my heart and I leaned forward to took a picture of him with a beautiful smile. He taught me a lesson that day and I continued learning more about him.. He told many stories of mountains. We handshaked and I let him go to do his duty. The duty that we should all have to do in order to keep the earth clean the duty which encourages us to breathe in the natural air.. Keep Clean the tourist and non tourist places Keep the earth clean...
