Serenity...!!!


5th MAY -1999:
It’s a blistering hot summer…everything seemed static as if even the shadows have gone for a hiding and a tiring chirpy sweet voice of a rather restless  5 year old Anubha welled up

Anubha: Mamma…Mamma
Anukriti: (Seemed distracted…turned towards Anubha) What happened?
Anubha: Mamma…Ice ceaam…
Anukriti: (Disgruntled…sprained her eyes towards the Ice Cream Vendor) one butter scotch please.

Anukriti took the ice cream and handed it to Anubha... Anubha held the ice cream close to her mouth suddenly saw a girl of about her age in ragged clothes seated on the pavement opposite her, staring at her with pleading eyes. Anubha felt uneasy and went straight to the girl, handed her ice cream to that poor girl and ran back to her mother who was speechless seeing her.

Anubha: Mamma let’s go
Anukriti though didn’t speak anything but certainly wasn’t pleased for something which Anubha couldn’t understand.

Later that day Anukriti told his husband Prakash about their daughter’s behavior…with an abject…I don’t understand Anubha…Today she gave away her ice cream to a beggar…if she wanted to give something she should have asked me…I would have given her 5 rupees but an Ice cream worth of 30 rupees…if she is going to be like this…god knows what she will do when she grows up.


Anubha heard this but didn’t know what to say…so she kept mum.

  6. Very inspiring story , thanks for sharing this. Actually there are people who does not care to research about important subjects and do things based on their perceptions like it happens in the story you shared. Parenting is not an easy job and hence parents should do proper research and make honest efforts to make sure that the development of their children is in right direction. People don't do that and then treat their children like this which is wrong, its like unintentional bullying in my opinion.

    1. Totally agree with you...yes there's a large generation gap between children and their parents and this gap is not only about the age...and truly speaking age is insignificant...but the problem is with our thinking the way we see things and perceive...there's a lot difference between parents and children...and these minor conflicts in thinking accumulate and thus lead children to diverge them from their parents and thus mishaps happens...!!!

    1. What does this really mean???

      This hmmmmm reminds me of a conversation with a friend...after speaking for around 10 mins...the only response i got was hmmmmm. i couldn't understand...whether it' was a positive or a negative one...might be he wasn't interested to hear ,may be he got bored or may be he got pissed off... or simply couldn't understand anything ...hmmmmm...generally makes me clueless...!!!
