The rich and the not rich

What are you searching for dear lady?

Are you looking for a new customer?

You must have forgotten there is a fair close to your vicinity

People prefer places and sellers 
don't you think so?

Those we called ‘choices’

Waiting is not a choice for ‘selling’

'Calling' for customers perhaps is selling

'selling' 
are you thinking of the facets of selling

Never think too much

forget all big words


who am i to tell you all these 

let me introduce 'my self' 

i am an ordinary woman 

You know what selling is better than me

i have not sold anything 

so how am i suppose to know 'what selling is'


Waiting and patience I am sure you understand


Bargaining that is what others do?


The banana looks fresh and fruity

Rich in vitamins

But dear lady you should remember

There are people not rich

Not rich in money

There comes the ‘choice’, dear lady
the struggles between the choices and needs
love and affection at home

Going home or buying bananas

The distance is very high between choice, needs, and the wallets

Lesser the  distance
they are richer

Again, i am mad

i know , you know all these

what am i doing then?

revisiting my site of brain 

i do it through you  


thank you dear lady for showing me a way

A path 



let me come back to the struggles of wallets again

dear lady,

the minds and hearts of your customers
they are full of important things

The images , the reflections of the ones,
waiting for a bag full of ‘something to eat’


All of sudden ‘ duwa’ putha’ comes to their minds

NO you are right
It is not a sudden thing

so these 'they' i mentioned
it is not that they ignored you
not that they didn't see you
they saw you
all of them

but 'the choices' ,  the struggle between wallet and affections 
refrains, them coming to you

such struggles has a name , dear lady

' obstacles ' that is the word i learned

perhaps there is a much bigger words

'the struggles of middle classes',
the struggles of the class below the 'middle class'

what is your class?

No!  'What one selling is not a good indicator of class

so .................

What happens thereafter, they go passing, looking at your site?
Do you know dear lady?

The choices become ‘tears’,
‘Sighs’

Hope you understand them ‘well’

So don’t worry though you take them back ‘home’, 
With a few coins, notes in your ‘hambiliya’*

Are you single?
perhaps this is a very ugly question to ask from you

i am trying to see you from your point of view
what harm in that, tell me  

Or

Are you still feeding your duwa, Putha,
Minibiree , Munupura?

Let me guess

You still is the bread winner

Oh!

Perhaps you are the assistant ‘bread winner’

Where is he right now?

the main - ‘bread winner’
Or,
Is he watching you from a distance?
Pardon me for using the words, ‘from a distance’
I meant
Physically distanced but within close

Thank you for polishing my brain, dear lady

And pardon me for being unethical

Taking your photo without getting permission

And

Thank you for colouring my page ‘footpath’ …………………………….

[ Duwa = daughter, Putha = son, Minibiree = grand daughter, Munupura = grand son]
