Story of a Young Man I met on Bus

Today I met a young man Mr. Hari (Name Changed to protect privacy) who lost his job due to demonitisation. He was repairing fans, electric motors & mixer grinders on a daily wage of Rs 500.Thanks to demonitisation, their business got hit and his employer asked him not to come as he has no means to pay the daily wage.He was a 10th standard passed young man working as an intern there.His father was suffering from some kind of disease and he was the only breadwinner of the family.And that was why he have to drop out the studies in the tenth standard.He had a loan of 3 lakhs as well as his home's document (deed) was pledged at a private finance company for 50000 rupees.He applied for a job as a door to door seller of masala powders, utencil cleaner and fmcg products.Now he is promoted as Manager and would no longer have to go door to door selling rice powder packets.Instead he would train new recruits and manage the distribution of the products in a certain northern district of the company which has presence in Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu. And he has paid his loan as well as took back the pledged document of home's title deed from the private finance company (read money lender).He plans to live a happy life.Want to uplift his family from the present financial situation.He want to conduct marriage of his sister and help the family of his uncle who is bedridden.And he has only the sales skills acquired last year to sell rice powder packets & dish wash bar to homemakers of that Northern district of Kerala. And he regards his job of Manager of a direct marketing company at the age of 24 as a dream come true and a great success in life.End of story.
