I remember when we were kids a young balloon seller used to come in our street and we used to fight with our parents to buy balloons for us. We grew up and that balloon seller stopped to come at our place. And after so many years I see him today nearby my home. He has become very old now but still selling the balloons. I was upset to see him because after around 25 years have gone he is still selling balloons. I am wondering how he might have fed his family by selling balloons as he might be earning very little money from it but then I think it's better at least he is not begging from people But I am sad for this balloon.seller. Sometimes we become sad when we meet someone whom we have not seen for years instead of getting happy. Have you may such person in your life who made you sad and made you to think?.

Yes,I have.There is a man who repairs old shoes and leather bags sitting near the library.I used to see him while I was going to college.After some time he disappeared.But recently I saw him near the library again doing the same thing.He had grown very old and thin.I remembered him when I read about the balloon seller.

@silvermist absolutely things have changed now. It's very tough to survive by doing such things. How difficult is life for such people.

Seeing the balloon seller still selling those balloons would make me sad too. I do hope that he had some happiness in his life.

Maybe you can make his day by buying several balloons from him. That makes me sad too.

They need to survive, that is why they are still selling despite old age. I knew a kacang putih seller on bicycle since I was young, he kept selling the mixed nuts until he passed away. Sad but the poverty of his faMily drove him that way
