I watched my favorite television show “the marginalized people” which is played on TV every day. Today’s story was about a family of a woman who has four children. The family has just lost their father who passed away and left a severe economic shock to them.
The eldest child in the family works to help the mother by being a vegetable harvester. He harvests carrots and carry them to a market for the field’s owner. With the only available results, he tries his best to reduce his mother’s burden by buying the family corn rice to eat together. He also collects money from his work to buy a school bag for his little sister who has longed for it a long time.
The family lives a very simple life. They dwell in a bamboo walled house which has soil floor. A small wooden cabinet with loose doors is a place to stick their clothes. They live day by day between hard works and simple amusements among themselves.
The mother divides her time between making money and keeping her children altogether. She sadly told the TV crews about her youngest child who is sick but unable to be brought to hospital because she doesn’t have any money. It’s a sad life they face every day but they try to hang on. However, it’s the brotherly sacrifice that hold the family together through all the good and bad times.
