I had been to an exhibition. It was based on make the best of the waste. I looked at the creativity of the talented people. Mats from plastic, envelopes, wall hangings, flowers etc were beautifully made. I moved around. Then after a while I reached home. Sister asked, “Did you bring my medicines?” “Oh no I forgot”, I said. She said angrily, “Oh you are such a waste. Fit for nothing.”
I silently sat on my favourite chair watching TV. I wondered, I’m a waste yet few talented people make such great use of me too! Hats off to them. They don’t use me like the stairs leading towards their goals. But as the grills besides the stairs which are equally helpful while climbing great heights.
Like for instance, Radha and I got our math papers corrected. I got less comparatively as she got three marks lesser than the full. They taunted me, I clapped at her victory. She needed this from me to boost her confidence. I did. She discovered that she could get those three marks too. She dragged me to staff room. She asked me to convince the teacher that her answer’s right. My speaking skills were used by her. Ma’am got convinced. She scored full marks. Now radha said, “Look how intelligent I am.” I praised her. This is known as making the best out of waste. I smiled to myself.
Reshma and her friends wanted to chat with their guys near the library. They feared to bunk the college alone. With me having some pretty good reputation in the eyes of our staff, my classmates forced me to stay with them. I can never say no. I stood with them. Next day ma’am asked about our absence they made me stand and answer. I convinced ma’am saying we were at the library reading few important books for tomorow's seminar. She was convinced as usual. Now once again I murmured to myself. This is making the best out of waste. My classmates knew very well about t. Else they never looked at me.
I was buying few jewelleries, a woman talked to me. I happily replied her. After a while she asked, “Can I purchase that necklace the one which you already bought?” I said ok. She walked away with it without lending me a piece of thanks too. Now this is making the best out of waste. Our neighbours, they seldom talk to me. Today aunty called me with love and affection. This time I knew it very well that something is fishy. She slowly handed over her kids to me and said, “Please look after them and feed them too.” She came after 8 hours. Picked her kids walked away without thanking me. This is making use of the waste in real life.
A friend of mine was about to get engaged, He was Mr.Attitude. I said, “Hi!”, He said “Huh!” This was him. Once he called me up. Said, lets meet today. I said, okay. After having an ice cream, he said can you do me a favour? As usual I couldn't deny. He gave an envelope and said said to give the letter to his to be wife. Once again the best out of waste. Summing up all together, I sat relaxing and felt, “No sister, I’m not a waste. I have got many uses. Even if not, people do make the best use of me!
