Surendra Mishra is 75 and has been kicked out of his job at a halwa shop in Mumbai where he worked for nearly 50 years. The sad and ageing man, who is single is heading home to Lucknow, not sure whether his folks will accept him. He was almost in tears as he narrated his life’s woes to me at the CST terminal late at night on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. But there was a glimmer of hope that people in his hometown would accept him. Fortunately Surendra is fit physically.
