The Jewel that adorned his faceI saw him from a very far distance as I was walking towards him, he seemed to be a very old man. The weather was cold and windy, even the warm clothes which I wore could not keep me warm as I was taking a stroll. As I kept walking his frame became clearer, he was wearing a white juba, which was so long that it almost touched his toes along with a white loose pant.
He was walking very slowly with his head bowed down and took every step carefully. He had a small luggage in his left hand, though it looked weightless, it seemed it was heavy for him to carry. He had a cap which covered his ears and no warm clothes to protect him from the cold weather. I started acing my steps, so I could ask him if I could be of any help to you and where is he going. I had almost reached him when suddenly a scooty brushed past us and took a sharp U-turn in front of the old man. When the old man lifted his head above and saw the man on the scooter there was a broad toothless smile on his face. How adorable was it to see him smile! How I wish If I could capture that moment in a frame, but I am sure had I captured it, I wouldn't have been able to live that moment.
The young man in scooter gave the old man a ride and I continued my journey looking out for more such stories.The toothless smile that the old man carried on his face was the most precious jewel that adorned his face.
Based on true incident.
