I know, some
of you are bored with my shayris, am I right? ---its natural, taking same foods
every day can make anyone bore.
Now I am
starting a new series---“Unknown Indians”, here I will write about some people
those who are neither famous nor highly successful but they have some special qualities
and they are playing important parts in our lives, their existence is very much
Today I will
write about a vegetable seller, they play a very important part in our lives,
am I right?
Let me start
how I found this person…
What I disliked
most is to going for vegetable marketing after taking the morning tea with two
bags in my hands(may be one bag in one hand, numbers of bags is not important
here), I don’t know why but i don’t like this one, may be one of the reasons is
I don’t have any idea about the vegetables with their names, but I had to do
it, my father always likes to go for veg marketing and he is very expert in it,
but one year ago one day my Mom asked me to bring some vegetables as that day
my father was not feeling well, I don’t like this work but it’s also true that
we can’t ignore our responsibilities.
There is a
famous vegetable market in my Hometown named “Tin Baazar”, it’s famous for
fresh vegetables in cheap rates, first day when I reached there, at first I took
a statistics of the rates of different vegetables then started buying those,
there I met a fruit seller for the first time, that day he was selling potato and
I had to buy 3 kilos of potato, I went to him, asked for 3 kilo of potatoes, he
took his basket, filled it with some potatoes and asked for my bag, I exclaimed
are you doing? Weight it in your weighting machine?
you wannna check?
the potatoes and it was exactly 3 kilos, there was another customer stood
beside me, he informed me
It was very
tough to believe, but then a boy came with a big bag to take 20 kg of potato,
the boy handed over the bag to the seller, he filled the bag with potato as
much as he approximated and gave the bag to that boy, taking the bag the boy
went out, even he did not ask for weighting.
became surprised seeing that person, then approximately after one month I went
for veg marketing again, not because my father was unwell, actually It is
really a very interesting job to buy fresh vegetables in cheap rates(later I became
addicted to it) with not much bargaining, so that day that man was selling
Pumpkins and ladies fingers, when I reached there, a customer (belongs to poor
family) asked for ladies finger of 8 rupees ( those who live by day to day
earnings, don’t buy things in weight, rather they buy according to their needs
of that day,there left only rs 8 to that poor man after buying other vegs.), when he asked for 8 rupees of pumpkins, I already calculated that 550gms of ladies finger will be available in 8 rupees, after taking some ladies
finger when that seller was about to hand it over to the customer I requested
him to weight those, and he made me spellbound, it was exactly 550gm.

This is what
happens when you do your job with love, concentration and dedication, there are
lots of sellers there but no one can do this act---this is what I felt and realized
after watching him.
this man’s capability with my family and again got scolded for my absent minded
nature, because my mom informed me that my father has already told about this
person many times.
I was thinking
about to share this man’s capability with the world--- it delayed as I decided
to share this with his picture and after a long gap I went for veg marketing in
Last Sunday I
visited that market again and asked that man for a snapshot, he agreed happily
and said thank you to me shaking my hand, when I was coming back I heard he was
informing an seller about that incident, his voice was very loud and was full
Here is the
rate of last Sunday---
kind of kitchen vegetable shaped like a cylinder tapering at both ends)---Rs 15/kg
of the Banana)---Rs 10/piece
kitchen vegetable having a bitter taste)---Rs 20/kg
are suffering from high rate of vegetables can avail this market.
By the way,
can the name of the name of this vegetable seller be recommended for any world
record book, like Guinness or Limca? Actually I don’t have much idea about it,
