Iron Lady…


Shila Ghosh : a lady 83 years old who lives at pali in West Bengal. Every
evening she comes from Pali to kolkata to sell the fries.The pedestrians out of
respect buy the fries from her. After lung cancer took away her only son
from her 5 years back,to make ends meet she works.Her nephew aged 30
works as a mover on meagre wages in pali. 
When asked if she has a problem in travelling,she weakly smile ans says “No,the bus gets me here and my health is not that bad”. She earns 400 rupees per day but still it is less for her family of four. Circumstances could have easily forced her to beg but her dignity and respect is everything for her, she would work till the end of her life rather than beg on the streets. 
When we go on complaining, let us remember her….. she has chose to solve
her problems on her own for as they say God helps them those who help
