THE WISH 

Standing near the road ,she watched the magician with utter surprise and jumped with a smile and astonished eyes to his every trick. The sun was about to set and so was the performance. Then the magician invited some children and asked to ask some wishes. 

One wished a chocolate and other a cake. Then it was her turn . They asked her to recite a wish which he will fulfill. She said” I wish to have pills to stay away from hunger.Then I  won’t see my small brother twisting and wailing with empty stomach and my mother begging on the streets.”

  1. When I get in a knot worrying about something I remind myself that my problems are “first world” problems or ” rich man’s ” problems. Your story is a great reminder of that. Thank you.
