Taking an interview of a little boy at sylhet rail station…

Posted on: September 2, 2008

Today, I met this little boy at Sylhet rail station around at 2:30pm. I came 15 minutes earlier at the station and I had this following conversation with this small kid. He came to me and he just laid his hand in front of me….

Me: what do you want?

Boy: I want to eat…

Me: what did you eat in the morning?

Boy: nothing!

Me: what?! You haven’t eaten anything till now?

Boy: hmm….

Me: are you not hungry?

Boy: hmm…. [He was just looking at my hand when I put that in the pocket]

He gave a nice shot when i was taking a pic with my cell phone

Me: So you haven’t eaten anything yet?

Boy: I ate chips from train [passenger that leave with the ships packet]

Me: you lied! You said you didn’t eat anything till now!

Boy: I said, I didn’t eat anything in the morning, but I ate chips few moments ago

Me: Oh! I see, so what you gonna eat now?

Boy: I don’t know, when train comes, I will look for chips packet and coke cane

Me: hmm…this is how you eat everyday?

Boy: hmm…..

Me: where is your parent? What do they do …?

Boy: they do nothing!

Me: your dad even doesn’t do anything?

Boy: hmm…. give me money! I want to eat … [I know he was losing his patience]

Me: ok, let me take a picture of you …

Boy: [he was looking at my mobile camera…]

Me: Take this money, go eat something…..

He didn’t stop for a second once he got some money in his hand. When he left, I was looking at his back….was thinking if there was anything I could do for him….but he saved me leaving like that! Maybe that was all I could do for him ……

have you listen sami yusuf’s song? their I listen “why not we pray for them”.

whatever we can do – we should do. if we couldn’t at least we should pray for them, normally we don’t.

it makes me so unhappy to this posts and conversations. thanks to share with us.
