A path left behind… Ganges India

An old face by the Ganges,
For a moment our eyes crossed in silence…
Is he in need of a helping hand?

I pondered.

He is an Idle… a boy told me tapping on my back
Bahador Baba is the name, the boy smiled proudly

Bahador Baba can heal the pain
Can tell the past and sight the future

You can make a wish for 50 rupees… the boy pleaded
Bahador Baba can make it come true…
He is a Baba… (God reincarnated)
I smiled back…

I closed my eyes, took a deep breath…
And made a wish!

For a day to grow old someday,
to be remembered somehow,
For a meaningful path left behind…
Worth remembering by someone!
