I dream big but I also think about reality. I can imagine being a king but I know Kings and Queens don't hold power anymore in the present world.
I was in Old Delhi gazing at everything with curiosity. This rikshaw driver asked me if I wanted to go somewhere.
I declined politely, to that he said he can drop me for a good price.
I think because I had a camera in my hand he thought I was a tourist.
He was very genuine and asked me "भैया दिल्ली से हो ?" ( Are you from Delhi ? ). I said " नहीं भैया हिमाचल से " ( No, I am from Himachal ) and then I walked away.
I don't like the idea of someone pulling my weight, I appreciate him a lot as I can never imagine myself doing what he does everyday. It requires a lot of mental and physical strength.
His dreams are big, maybe even bigger than mine. I am sure he understands the hardship of life better than anyone else. He knows that he has to work extremely hard to achieve what he wants in life.
I wanted to take his photo because he was my inspiration for that day so I turned back and clicked a photo of him waiting for customers.
Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.
