Naina came back from school at noon to find an empty house. She looked everywhere but Granny couldn’t be found. Being a diligent labourer that her Granny was, Naina knew she must be out working somewhere, even though it was 1st May, when the whole world working class gets a holiday. She went farther to the fields and spotted her Granny plucking weeds amidst the crops. She went to her and asked why was she working when it was supposed to be a holiday.
“I know it’s a holiday. But I don’t need to take rest, as work gives me energy and keeps me active, you know.”
“Granny, you don’t need to lie to me. I know they didn’t allow you to take a holiday.”
“Naina, you go home. I will come after sometime and serve lunch to you.”
Reluctantly, Naina turned and moved towards the home.

Work is so important to us. Even when we retire we need to be doing something.
That’s so true! Work gives something to look forward to, no matter what the age. 😇
It’s true. I know and saw everything but can’t do anything. My maid and cook were coming today.Not taking rest.
Thank you Tai ji for your comment! ❤️ Indeed, there is a working class who never gets their basic rights too and we are helpless.
Lovely story ❤️

Yes, indeed! It needs love and support from all the classes of the society, but it’s a long way.
