A mother's dignity of workRecently I came across a story which was a news item long back published in Times of India internet edition on 4th November 2016.
Sumitra Devi, a class-IV employee sweeping the roads in CCL township, Rajrappa, Jharkhand, retired from her service and as usual a farewell party was arranged for her in their office.
There was a big surprise and the whole atmosphere changed when three cars reached the venue on that day and three respected persons - one district collector, one engineer and one doctor alighted from the cars and came to the farewell venue and touched the feet of Sumitra Devi.
Soon the people came to know that these were the three sons of Sumitra Devi and even after that she did not leave her small job telling that this only gave her the means to educate her sons and today because of that only they have reached such good posts.
It is really remarkable that inspite of her sons reaching such a high status she was humble enough to continue her job. It is a great lesson to all of us and a great example of dignity of work.
