Man In Yellow Trouser - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

A vivid memory of childhood
I remember him for obvious reasons
Since he had big family to support
A family of nine, including seven children
On a meagre pay with not many cloths
To buy and wear I saw him in
Cream shirt and Yellow trouser
For many years, he was man of steely nerves
Upright and very pious
A God fearing and true servant
Lead his life on his own terms
Raised his family with dignity
And none of his children let him down
With three becoming doctors
And two Engineers and two post grads
All well placed, what I remember most of him is
Ever smiling face on humble body
With yellow trouser and cream shirt.

    Any body will like this man in yellow trousers! His frugality and hard work scripted for him a great success story in the end! One who sees life in a positive light and sees the challenges of life with a smile will be rewarded one day! Great message! A 10 (Report) Reply

    how many of them turned out humble as dad?
    if they lost that, did they all go bad?
