The Bread Winner
She was surrounded with rich blossoming flowers and colorful lights. The lights illuminated her face. Bright colored fragrance rich flowers scented her. Festival season it was and she was excited. Her eyes wore anxiousness.
She was waiting for someone to come and buy the flowers she plucked and turmeric yellow Marigold flower garlands she made early morning. She poured in her sweat and blood to earn that day as she could not go back to her kids empty handed.
It was a festival day after all.
