For the unsung hero

She doesn't know exactly how old she is ,but she definitely looks older than her real age.Her world is her four children and work,and also a husband whose utility is only as a name on her childern's school records.She never went to one herself but finds it all the more essential for her kids to get an education.

Her battles are not grand,she doesn't struggle to get her waist thinner or her hair less gray.She finds joys in small things like buyin a new skirt for her girl or finding out her son's progress in school.Her persistence at things is often infectious and her resilience to get a better life for her family is something all women can relate too.

Today her day was defined by finding a comfortable corner aboard a passenger train to her village .I salute her and thousands of other domestic helps who make life easier for us with a smile and without any heartfelt acknowledgement.
These faceless,identity-less people sure deserve a little time,thought and respect.
