Streets presenting the hidden talents

I was sitting in my room, busy in fighting with my siblings and cousins. On that day of independence, the day of freedom, there was a war going on in my home. Well! We all do that.

But just imagine if all your anger lowers down by hearing some sweet voice!

Yes,  that was what happened to me.

Look at this picture. Well, I don’t have any idea how to click pics. But just see at his colorful flutes. This is the only way to make his family sleep well and a tummy full of food. These flutes have magic to convert your anger into calmness. And on that day this man whistling out the tune of “HUM HONGE KAMYAB”  and the most famous “YE DESH HE VEER JWAANO KA”.

By hearing this I just ran out towards the door and ask him to stop. He stops!. I asked him one question, uncle, how did you learn it? Or you have learned from someone, from your elders! He said, Nahi hamein Kisi ne Nahi sikhaya (No one told me How to play). He said, tell which flute should I give you. But I said, uncle! I don’t even know how to play this. He said, come here! Arey Ayo, ayo!… I just go. You just place your mouth on whistle hole, and blow, he said. He asked me for the song. Gulaabi Ankhein!!., I demanded. And the tune starts as if I was playing that. But this was the magic of his fingers, full of oil, he full of sweat, as all cleared in his pic. After that, I thank that man for making feel like a flute player for an instant. But guess what he said after this.

He said he has his own daughter of my age, who is his big fan and for whom he starts this work. Again love wins!! And I bought two flutes.

The thing is that we have all we want in today’s time, but still we do nothing. And this man who neither have the Internet neither have phone nor tutorials and still whistles it much better than youtube or others. This is the hidden talents wandering the streets with no opportunities. He can play all the tunes either they are 70’s or today’s disco songs, anyone. The most beautiful voice I hear when he started folks. The smoothness in his folks just made me crazy. And when he was ready to go in another street he said, one day he will be famous and make her daughter proud. And now see he is on his way. YOU ARE A GREAT MAN, SIR!
