Aneesh was a successful person and was leading a peaceful life. He and his sister were the helping hands of their parents. On his parent’s anniversary, he thought of giving a goldfish as a gift to his parents. He went walking to the fish shop.
The goldfish he chose was very beautiful. He bought that fish and took the route home but unfortunately when he was returning home the weather changed. Trees started shaking, leaves began falling and the visibility became less. Aneesh tried crossing a road, it was very difficult for him as the wind was very strong. At the same time there was a car coming, the driver’s visibility was low too. However, he kept honking from a distance. When Aneesh felt that a car was near him, he just jumped to save his life but the mini fish bowl broke and a piece of glass went into his eyes.
After the storm passed the police found Aneesh on the corner of a road. He had lost a large amount of blood. The doctors saved his life but not his eyes. His parents and his sister became his helping hands because the time when they needed help, Aneesh had helped them. Aneesh could not continue with his job anymore but still he wanted to do something good in his life. Every morning he gave food to poor, needy and homeless people. His hearing sense grew stronger and when a puppy would bark from a distance he could hear. With the help of his friends he sent some injured puppies to dog shelters.
Aneesh now saw the world in a different way through his mind. He did not have eyesight but he earned respect and love from the people around him.
