Just one person around the world


This person is a push cart vendor selling vegetables daily.

He is doing great service to the society in these covid days, visiting each house to sell the vegetables.

On this day, he was pushing his cart a bit fast, but suddenly stopped for a moment and started wondering about something which caught his attention.

I am not sure what exactly in his mind at that moment and what is that made him turn his head.

May be a loud sound from that side, or some street brawl happening…..I am not sure.

From his expression, I felt he wanted to tell something.

And I am not sure what he wished to tell.

Being intelligent creatures most of us think that we can tell what the other person is thinking.

Yes.We observe person’s feelings and thoughts from a distance but sadly we can never guess correctly.

What are these guesses?

  1. At first glance I thought he had blood on his face and was perhaps in an accident…was he cursing the person who caused it? At second glance and after reading your commentary, I’m wondering if it’s a mask pushed up on his forehead so he could call out to a friend he sees by surprise and who hasn’t been around in a long time, like “Hey Joe, where have you been?”

    1. Thank you my friend .
      No my friend ….he never had any injury on the forehead.
      Actually he has smeared ash powder on the forehead.
      Ash powder known as Vibhuti is applied on the forehead in 3 horizontal lines. Hindus who are devotees of Lord Shiv paste-this sacred as on the forehead.
      Ash powder comes from burnt dried wood.
      The red colour you noticed on the forehead is not blood but saffron& vermilion combination again part of the tradition.

      It is nota mask my friend.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

      I hope I clarified your doubt regarding blood on his face.
