The Ferry Man


“As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed”


It truly amazed me how this 89 old year man makes living and support his family of 7 in a very remote village of kerala paddling across a 300 meters wide river daily ferrying passengers from one end to another. His routine starts at 5.30 in the morning until 8.30 in the evening and 24/7 standby for emergencies.

I salute this man who thought me ‘Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter’. I Challenge any modern youth to survive their imagination of putting themselves in this man’s shoes at their 89’s
