Recently I got my sofa upholstery changed. I contacted a furniture shop in near by market in Calcutta. The shopkeeper noted down my name and address. The very next day a man was at my doorsteps who offered to take up the job of fixing new upholstery on the sofas. After fixing up the rates etc., he turned up the next day with the material and resumed his work. He completed the job in record time and did it to my utmost satisfaction. I had paid him some advance and when I paid the balance he fell at my feet. He hugged my lower legs with his arms and burst into tears. I was shocked to see such behaviour from a man who had great skill. On asking the reason for his crying he told me that he did not have a job and that he had not eaten a proper meal in past many days. He begged of me to get him some job. I was not in a position to offer him any job and I promised him that whenever some one known to me would require such kind of service I will certainly recommend his name. It is really a sad state of affairs that such a skilled worker is compelled to go without a suare meal because of unemployment.
