The Rotten Fruits
It was New Year's Eve again and I was in a hurry to buy fruits
because my mother told me it would bring good luck. Hence, I went
to the marketplace and went to the fruit stalls. While looking
for fresh and juicy fruits, I noticed a boy who seemed to be looking
for something. I walked away and continued on my task of buying
fruits. After some time, I was really tired after walking for
a couple of hours and carrying a few kilograms of fruits. I tried
to carry the fruits home but my body won't listen to me. I decided
to rest at the nearest cafe.
While eating at the cafe, a boy caught my attention. He looked
familiar to me and I recognized him as the boy who was looking
for something earlier. He was still looking for something. I also
noticed that he was carrying a torn bag that was filled up. My
curiosity got the better of me so I paid my bills and secretly
followed the boy.
I followed him and noticed that he was picking up fruits that
were nearly rotten that had fallen by the roadside. I thought
that the bag might be filled with fruits like the one he picked
up. Questions filled my mind. What will he do with the useless
fruits which were rejected by others? Who will he give the fruits
to? At that point of time, I decided that the kid is probably
a poor beggar that eats rotten fruits.

I followed him until he stopped at the park. The boy slowly removed
the fruits out of the bag and started eating them. I was disgusted
by what the boy did so I went up to him and told him to stop.
I told him that he might get ill by eating the rotten fruits.
However, he wouldn't listen to me and continued eating. To my
surprise, he invited me to sit beside him and have a little talk.
I sat beside him and he stopped eating. That made me felt slightly
better. He started telling me his story. He was a child of a poor
couple. They passed away when he was only five years old and he
has been surviving on his own ever since. This moved me greatly
but the rest of his story is even more amazing.
He told me that he will pick up every fruit he sees even though
When I asked him why, he answered, "I picked up these fruits
which other people reject because they don't know the value of
these fruits. The trees wait for months just to bear fruits but
people reject it. I think this will make the trees sad so I value
the fruits and eat them whole-heartedly. I don't know why people
reject the love the trees bear for us."

This really touched me as I realized that this young child understands
the true meaning of love. He is a boy who is able to see true
beauty despite the appearance.
The child taught me a lesson and I hope that all of you would
try to change for the better too. If a child's eyes can see inner
beauty then surely we as grown-ups can do so too.
