Rioters burned the tailor’s shop. It was opposite to our house.
When the curfew was lifted, he came and sat down in despair on seeing the ramshackle shop.
Mother called him and offered him our old singer machine for the time he could buy his own.
He was thankful and offered to stitch our clothes for free.
Mother strongly rejected the idea.
‘You need money to buy a new machine. So start your business first and save money.’
Mother was a conservative Hindu and the tailor was a Muslim.
Mother sowed a seed of compassion, for everyone, in me that day.
