A short story written during my train journey on the Pune Mumbai route
A vendor comes and sells some drawing books. Son sees a picture of doraemon and wants it. Mother and father talk in signs about the cost. Mother scans through the books and after much deliberation purchases a set of 3 for 50. Son is happy. An extra train ticket would have cost 120. Inspite of their struggles parents do their best to give the best to their son.
Story of countless lower middle class people.
