I was unemployed , was searching for gud jobs but every time I was just failing to get a job in which could be comfortable. I was in India after leaving UK without any money . I had only money to book my ticket . I struggled allot in UK but because I was there on a student visa I had no permission to work and my family couldn't send me any money to survive in UK. I decided to go back to India ( my homeland) . After coming to India I thought I will find a really good job because now I can speak English in British accent and also because I did so much hard work in UK in order to survive . But when I came back my age was nearly 30 so all the retail stores refused to hire me because I was not fitting in their age criteria . I tried some another jobs in my city because I already was living away from my family for four years so I didn't want to move to any other city for job . My family lives in a small city of Punjab state in India which is famous for sports industry. I had so much hope to get a handsome salary because I was graduate and I also had a two years business management diploma from London. My dad who was working for a government bank was retired from the bank when I was in UK. He was only getting pension . My mom and dad were living together and my sister's daughter was also living with us because she was only two years and her mother was working full time . So my parents didn't made me feel bad because I couldn't do much good financially for them and left the UK without bringing any money with me . I had no choice because government was becoming more and more strict with international students every day . My parents welcomed me back. My parents were getting old and I was there only support they only had pension money. I tried so hard to get a good job because in my city I couldn't do small jobs like rickshaw pulling, auto or taxi driving , working as a labour etc because I was in my own city . We knew people there and it doesn't gives you respect in India when you do these kinda jobs when you are educated . So people only like people who are doing white collar jobs . I could do any kinda job but for my parents prestige I had to do only white collar jobs. I had so pressure because of that also . I said to my parents if am not getting a good white collar job let me do small jobs in order to survive and they said no, you can't do it here because we know people . I couldn't leave my house now because I wanted to stay with my old getting parents now to spend time with them. I tried so hard but everywhere the world is same , people want you to work so hard for them but they don't want to pay you good . Everyone was offering me 5000 to ten thousand rupees only per month . Which are so less for me for eight or nine hour job everyday for one month. I told my parents and they became so unhappy. I was getting a job because of my English only in an international call centre at Jalandhr . But when they were giving me training I found it fraud business with innocent people in UK . I had to call local people in UK and cheat them on phone . They were calling it smart work lol . They were paying me salary plus incentives . I refused to do that job because It was against my self esteem. I was staying at home was getting money from my parents for six months and couldn't find a job which could satisfy me . I started feeling very low day by day . I started thinking am becoming poor in this country now. I started feeling I am so poor I don't have money. I use to see poors but at that stage I started believing I am poor too . I was becoming depressed . I was becoming hopeless without good job and money. I wasn't even that clever I could start my own business. I didn't even have that much money to start a business because I was only getting money from my parents for my parents as a pocket money. I couldn't even wait for one month to get salary . I needed a job in which someone can pay me on daily basis or weekly . But in India you can't find these kinda jobs in small cities. Only labour people get money weekly . Labour in India is not even easy and safe due to so many reasons. I use to go outside for looking a job for interviews etc but everything was making me feel more bad . People don't care what problem you facing they only care about their own benefits . I felt am so so poor . These fellings were hurting me so bad . I use to see people in expensive cars , people who had money and I was feeling so shame on me . I was thinking now I am a very poor guy I have to accept this fact that I am poor and I can only serve others and get money . Because I stands nowhere. One day one old man who was running a wee cigarettes and tobacco shop, who was still struggling to survive and was really old ; returned me my change when I purchased something from his wee shop . It wasn't even a shop it was just a wooden cabin . I said to him keep the change and he simled and said thanks . He really needed it I could see. Then I saw someone walking on the road in very hot weather and I was driving my bike . I stopped and said do you want me to give you a lift he said yes please . I gave him lift. He became so happy and said thanks very much. Then I saw a poor wee kid working on a restaurant for truck drivers on highway. I saw his poor moany face . He wanted to cry but was working . He had a skinny body like he don't even get enough to eat or he works more than he can . I could see his boss was giving him orders and wee kid was the only one to serve customers. He had no time to stop or rest . He wasn't working happily. I was there with my cousin who is a truck driver when I was learning truck driving skills from him because I was free. I gave that wee guy ten rupees and he became so happy . I also said to him I am sorry I can't do anything else for you mate. I wish I can, but I can only say you don't be upset and be strong because you working hard in this age when kids go tp school so god will help you to save you . He smiled and said thanks . He was looking at me again, like inside he was saying thanks to me again and again. I can't forget his face . Then one day I met with so many people in India who were struggling to survive more than me . I had bike , good clothes and house to live or food to eat but I saw so many who didn't even have these things. Who didn't even knew how they will eat tomorrow. People who work hard every day just for two times meal . These experiences with other people made me feel I was actually rich . I could give lift to people .I could give rest of my change to people who really needed a single rupee. I could give food to buy something to eat for hungry people so I wasn't poor I was actually very rich. All those moments on which I tried to help others I became rich. Within few minutes I saw myself becoming rich . People think nobody can become rich overnight but I became rich so many times even within few minutes. I am still struggling for money but now I don't see myself as a poor guy. I have loads to give so if a person can something to someone who really needs is rich . He isn't poor who can share things with others hez poor who have loads money but can't help others.
