One evening when his parents returned home, they were very quiet. Sakima knew that there was something wrong.

薩可滿對父母說:“我可以給他唱歌,這樣他就會高興起來了。”但是薩可滿的父母不喜歡這個主意:“他很有錢,而你只是一個看不見的小男孩。你以為你的歌聲會幫到他嗎?”

"I can sing for him. He might be happy again," Sakima told his parents. But his parents dismissed him. "He is very rich. You are only a blind boy. Do you think your song will help him?"


但係沙基馬都冇放棄,佢細妹亦都鼓勵佢。佢就話:「沙基馬嘅歌聲既然趕得走飢餓,肯定亦都能夠安慰有錢人。」
