Social Women

I like to tell u about a women, who have a good care on our society.

I used to see a woman, every day near our house, every morning she used to sweep the entrance of every shop. When walk on the road, if she finds any stones or paper or any garbage in the road, she pick up and put it on the dustbin. Many people will walk on the road but on one will think to pick the waste paper and put it on the dust bin. Up to 6.pm we used to play with our friend in the street next to our house. When the time come 6.pm many children’s will gather on the front of a Ganesh temple near our house with there school bags, we also go there to watch what they are doing in front of the Temple. I used to go there to see what they are doing in front of the temple, I was surprised, because the women who I saw picking papers on the road is teaching lessons for the kids near the temple. She also used to advice us to go and study in your home. On every Friday my mom used to take me to that Ganesh Temple. In every temple I have see only male priest, but in that temple this women was a priest. I wonder to see that temple, because the temple will be very clean and her decoration for lord Ganesh will be very beautiful.

After watching her activities, I asked my mom about her. Who is that women

My mom told me that every one call her mame, she is a widow and good educated. Mom told that she has worked as a teacher in a school, some years back. One day she had felled down and wounded in her head, so some times she used to get fix & sworn, because of this her school has dismissed her, she argue with the school for re-return but they dint take her argue and send her out. But she dint worry and sit, she like to use here education to students, so she took a pledge to take her education to the students who are poor and cant go to school with there family problems. So she started teaching the poor children’s in the temple, who are living near the temple. She teaches the students without getting money form them, because all of them are very poor kids. She also works as a priest in a Pillaiyar (Ganesh) Temple near our house. We don know where she is staying, but the people in our area call her and give food every day. My moms also some times give her food and she also used to help my mom for taking water, putting kolam (drawing in flour) and sweeping our gateway. After some day, some gang people did problem and , said not to allow her to do poojas for god. so they spread wrong words like she was mentally affect so we should not allow her inside the temple. After these incidents she stopped her priest work, but she dint stop teaching lessons for the kids. I our area some people gave her space to take lessons for kids. Two years back when she was waking on the road she got fix and sworn that time a car hit her, and she died. She dint have any relatives or kids, so our area people have gathered and done her final ceremony. She has a good care on our society, and likes to keep our country very clean and does many help for our area people. I don’t know why the got is taking such a good people to him.

Jeevan,

I know few characters like this who were doing good to others. It is a shame that we are living in such a society. I am happy that atleast there were some good people, like your mom and others to do something for her. I would like to appreciate you for highlighting such good women. Nobody knows the problem she would have undergone. It is really pathetic to know about her fate.

Suppose if we believe in karma ..Nallavanga thirippi porandhalum nallathey.

ithaivida nallavangala ana kashtapadama kandippa porapanga.

Imagine if this lady was alive for a long long time till 90's..she would have become weak and would have needed care. Care giver poi teacher poi she would have led another kind of life..That is why nallavanga ellamey kashta padamal..rather mattha vangalai kashta padamal seekarama poidranga..my thoery.


Good and Bad ellame relative in life. Ithu ethuvume seyyama summa lazya selfisha kalam thalinalum onnum illai. Ana whatever happiness this woman gave and more than that whatever she got when she was doing service will not be felt by a lazy selfish person.
