Problems

Sheela was worried and sat silently staring out of the window, she is just 10 year old. Her dad wants to make her understand life and to see her happy.

“What happened?” He asked her.

“I feel sad” She replied in meek voice.

“Okay Lets go somewhere” He pulled her hands affectionately.

While crossing the construction site, They saw the old building being demolished and stones of various size are littered around the place. Her dad got an idea.

“Let’s play a game” He said cheerfully to her.

She looked around the place and questioned in confusion “Do you mean here ? ”

“Yes here only. Can you lift that small stone? ” He asked.

“I guess yes” She went near that and lifted that stone.

“Good. what about that? ” He pointed to the bigger stone than the previous one.

She started to say no but her dad said “Before you say no , look around and see the bigger stones than that. Do you still think you can’t  lift that one ?”

This time she was bit confident about it and lifted the stone. She was happy about it, she had done something which she thought she couldn’t  do.

Her dad patted her shoulder and said “These stones are like problems you face everyday. You can surely lift it with little extra effort. But your fear blocks your ability and make a false assumption that you can’t do that. Before solving any problem in your life, look around and ask yourself is that really big problem than those huge one’s out there. I won’t give you false assurance, life is never a bed of roses, in the same way it is not full of thrones, I wont ask you what is your problem now, but whatever it is , solution lies inside you, which you need to find, instead of being sad about it”

She nodded understanding the life and added cheerfully “Let’s go home dad. I have some things to work on “. Her dad smiled at her change.

Raise your hand if you are also one

Have you ever felt

Any new path reminds you of your favourite path,

Have you ever felt

Any new book reminds you of the book which was close to your heart,

Have you ever felt

Any new recipe tickles your taste bud exactly the same way as your top food list ,

Have you ever felt

Any new lyrics made you murmur some dear old song,

Have you ever felt

The confusion between taking it as blessing or throw it away as frustration

Have you ever felt

The most pressing question arising in your mind,

“Is it really happening or simply dejavu induced by imagination”

Maturity

“I want icecream” says kid , after throwing lot of tantrum it gets icecream.

“Give mom little bit” says mom teasingly.

“No it’s mine” says kid sternly.

Few years later

“Mom do you want icecream?” Asks little grown up boy.

“Yeah get it. Take wallet from bag” says mom busy with purchasing.

“Here you go” says kid with only one icecream. Mom looks questioningly.

“I am not in mood to have. You have “ kid tries to sound cheerfully for mom , empty purse in hand still seems heavy in that little heart.

He opened a book to start reading

“Did you forget me ?” She asked as soon as she saw me.

“ No. How could I ? “ He replied with shock.

“Good to know. I thought you are busy with your new love “ Her voice faded with pain.

“Of course not. You know always You are my muse, my inspiration “ He tried to reason out .

“Yeah , but you don’t have time for me now a days .Did you move on so soon ?” She asked with hesitation.

He turned around and looked at his table to find something , but notepad and pen were there.

“Come I will show you something” He said in excitement, coming out of his thoughts.

He went to library and looked at long array of books there , moved his hands longingly on his favourite books.

“There you go. That’s the precious place for you , my first love , reading. I will never move on, no one can replace you. Not even my new love for writing.“ He kneeled down and said lovingly.

She also looked at library and smiled heartily , felt he was right , atlast she found her home. she realised she has taken her permanent place on his heart.

That’s my story of first and second love.

Fulfil my wish

Lonely as the night, silent as a star, I sat in the shore , lost in the thoughts. Those waves crawls happily towards me but then it disappear in tiny tiny water droplets before even I really realise it. Silently I was talking to sea , my mind feel light now.

“ Did you like those waves more than me ? “ he asked teasingly.

“ Yeah , atleast they listen to me . “ I smiled and replied.

“Let’s go “ he said in mock anger.

I tried to move , but he lifted me in his arms and started walking . This is our Sunday routine . We came here without fail. Earlier I used to carry him , now his turn . My son never forget to grant my wish of talking to waves. Doctor restricted me from getting down the bed, but he help me see the rest of the world like this.

“Thank you “ I whispered in heavy voice.

“ For you thousand time over “ he replied quoting my favourite line from Kite runner, which I used to tell him often.

I can’t control my laughter .
