When the girl met me, she greeted me with three words, "good morning, sir".I could see the face of my driver radiating with happiness and pride.I had never seen him so happy and proud.By uttering three simple English words with confidence,the girl had made her father's day.She justified the years of effort he had put into her education. The three words made him forget all the hardship he had suffered in putting the first ever girl in the family in a college.
Two thoughts passed my mind when I saw the glowing face of my driver. First, when one educates his daughter against odds, one does a lot for her, but does much more for oneself. When the effort bears fruit, the joy and pride one experiences is impossible to describe in words.These feelings are worth much more than all the wealth one may have accumulated. Second, it is not big things which make us happy. More often, it is the smallest things that make us the happiest.In the present case, the three words uttered with confidence were enough.
I pray that the girl goes on to achieve more and more, fulfilling all the dreams of her father and giving him many more moments of happiness and pride.
