Shivam, a fifteen years old boy, was standing with his parents in front of the ticket counter to buy circus tickets. He saw a family who left a great impression on him. This was the only family between his family and ticket counter. There were seven children, all are well-behaved. One can easily notice that they belong to a poor family who can’t afford such shows.
One can easily see the charm and excitement on their faces to watch circus show, they were really very excited watching clowns, elephants seem like it was their first time when they had come to watch a circus show. They were eagerly waiting for their turn to buy tickets. They have not worn very much expensive clothes but their clothes were neat and clean. All children have charm in their eyes, one can easily tell by looking into their eyes that they have waited long for this day to come. They were standing proudly with happy faces waiting for their turn.
Their father asked for the price quotation, the clerk at the ticket counter asked for the number of tickets he wants to purchase? The father says that he needs two adult and 7 children tickets. The clerk quoted the price to man.
After listening, the man looking nervous and again asked for the price quotation, the clerk again quoted the price of tickets.
The man did not have enough money to buy tickets worrying about how could he can say to his family that he does not have enough money to buy tickets for them. “How can he supposed to tell their children that they can’t watch circus show as they were eagerly waiting with so much excitement in their eyes” The thought made the man feeling nervous.
Shivam’s father was noticing the scene. He wants to help the man but how could they gave them money as it can make them feel embarrassing. His father has in his mind that they were standing proudly, they have not begged for money, if he asked them to take the money then this can be very insulting to man in front of his kids. Thus he used a trick to help the man.
Shivam’s father put his hand in his pocket and pulled out a 200 Rs note and gradually dropped the note onto the ground. Then picked up the note in front of others and tap the shoulder of the man and said: “this note had fallen out from your pocket, please have it”. The eyes of the man turn of moist and had a grateful smile on his lips. He took his hands in own hands and said a heartbreaking thank you to Shivam’s father.
Shivam himself does not belong to a rich family but the way his father spread the happiness was real heart touching. You know what? They themselves came back to their home without seeing the show as they didn’t have enough money for the show. However the action of his father made them feel the happiness which circus would not make them feel.
