Motivational Short Story on Writershideout.net - Lalita & The Old Woman

Lalita lived with her husband Raghu in a small town. Her husband was a School Teacher who had an average salary. They made both ends meet with great difficulty. Lalita used to look at nice clothes, jewellery etc and wished she could buy them but she could never save any money for luxuries after paying rent and other bills of her household. Even though her life had no excitement as such, she believed in God and hoped for the best.
     
Life went on like this but Lalita never lost hope. One day her work done at home she went and sat near the park. After sometime she noticed an old woman begging for alms though dressed in nice expensive clothes. Surprised she went and asked the woman why she was begging as she didn’t look poor. The woman said – “I belong to a well to do family. We have a big house and in it we have all we need. The only problem is that whenever I sit down with my husband at the dinner table, my son’s wife makes such remarks that I can’t swallow any food. Everything is in her hands except my personal belongings.
