Vishnu felt very much homesick when he told me about his native place. I met him in a construction site and came forward to talk to him. I was quite surprised to know that he came from the same place where I belong to . He knows my father too. He is in Bangalore for last 5 years. On last Diwali, he went to his home and brought his brother here too. Vishnu and Nitai both work here in the same construction site. Earning a negligible amount of money and staying in the same construction site, he still thinks that some day he will be able to leave this job and start a grocery shop back in his village and stay with his family.
PS. Vishu and Nitai , both are names of Hindu gods.
