We Sell Flowers but Seek Fie!

Recently, I met these two adorable kids (they are siblings) on the banks of the Yamuna. They were insisting on buying these flowers. The first thing that I asked them was for what good reason they are not in school?

"We have this skin allergy and people don't really like being around us. Our mother has instructed us to make money if being able to seek education is not possible with this face", they said.

My idea is not to express my disgust over the miserable life they're leading for various reasons. What I wish to point out here is that for the sake of God, educate people around you why they don't have to assign meanings to how people look, demand them not to create the greatest disdain for least reasons, tell them that innocence has no appearance.

Our obliviousness has shattered the sinless dreams of these two, make sure there are no more little hands that sell flowers but seek fie!

This is an eye opener for many people around the world. I've seen many children like those when I visited India some time ago and that's heartbreaking. Please, can you tell me what "seek fie" means?

Hi Antonio, 

'Fie' is used to express outrage or disgust. What parallel I wanted to draw here is that these kids though sell flowers, but seek disgust from people.
