Original Text

I walked away quite helplessly. That night, I shared this with my grandfather. He was a remarkable man, very clever. He was a part of the Indian freedom struggle under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. Unlike me, he wasn't surprised at all. He knew of people who added rice starch to mud to calm their hunger. And he told me something profound. If you see a person walking on the road without footwear, it is important to understand the root cause: that the person doesn't have enough money to probably buy the footwear.
