A man lost his interest in almost everything and finally he walked out of his profession, place and people. By hitchhiking, he reached to a remote place in the late evening. It wasn’t his destiny. Fact of the matter – he was wandering. He looked tired and was feeling feverish. Upon inquiry, a family in the village invited him to stay with them on that winter evening. 

The lady of the house and a mother of two, started her preparation for dinner after serving a hot cup of soup to the guest at home.

The old lady initiated some talks to engage the guest, children were busy in their studies whilst the man of the house was talking over phone. He joined the conversation in between.

The lost man felt something unusual when he bit a hard piece that was given to him in a separate bowl along with soup plate. Then, he realized it’s a small magnetic piece rolled with couple of copper wires. Young boy along with his sister who was coming towards the shallow dining table noticed and couldn’t control his laugh. His sister said “No phones while eating food” while pointing towards the micro jammer.

The man was still in surprise with the gestures of his host family members; the lady handed him his dinner plate containing two hot, homemade flat millet breads along with a bowl of dal and brinjal fry.

All other family members, sat with him on a circular table with their dinner plates.

Just before he starts eating, the man of the house smiled and signaled his family members, all five of them took a small piece of roti from their plates and fed to the guest in the house.

The lost man’s eyes rolled in tears and found what he had lost in his life.

How many of us sat with our family and have one meal per day if not at least per week?
