Savera

Poverty

By: Manal Aijaz 

Everyone, meet Savera. She sells balloons on streets all day long and for a job as tough as this; she was lively and seemed quiet happy. I got a chance to converse with her today and we both had a good time.

"Kya naam hai aapka?"
"Savera."
"Kya karti hou aap?"
"Gubaron se khailti hun rouz raat."
"Khanay mein kya pasand hai?"
"Aam sabse zyada."
"Aapke baba amma kya karte hein?"
"Amma jhaaru lagati hain aur sadam (younger brother) ko sambhalti hain aur baba raat ko lene aatay hain."
"Aapke baray behen bhai hain?"
"Aek bhai hai."
"Kitna bara hai aapka bhai?"
"Uss uncle jitna."
"Savera, aapki aek tasveer lun?"
"-blushes and smiles widest-"
"Acha aam khanay chalein?"

And she was the happiest at this.
