Twinkle Twinkle ‘Pole Star’..( A Short Story)

Few days ago ,while sailing through the channel list of the television, I suddenly paused on one of the channels. On this channel, a series was dedicated to Mythology, and the episode showcased one of the touching stories of ‘Dhruv Taara( The Pole Star)’.

In the Hindu mythology , Lord Vishnu is said to have blessed a child whose name is Dhruv, who went on to become the ultimate ‘Pole Star’ as we know today.

The story goes somewhat like this.

Dhruv was the elder son of one of the kings, who also had a second wife and the younger of his kids was from the second wife.
The Maharaja(King) showed some more affection towards the younger son, while his second wife always wished that her son should become the successor of his father, instead of the elder son Dhruv.( In ancient days, the eldest of the sons used to inherit the kingdom from his father.)

Dhruv, pining for his father’s love, used to steal glimpses of his father, who was busy bestowing his love and playing with the younger son.The king used to make him sit on his lap, tell stories and fairy tales.

In a nutshell, Dhruv experienced the love of his father,being bestowed on his younger brother, from a distance, until, one rare night when the Maharaja was playing 
with both of his sons, his second wife interreupted. She  frowned and jolted back upon Dhruv to leave immediately. Elder, but still a kid, Dhruv went on to his Mother ,sobbing, with his eyes saturated with tears and posted his queries, ” Why I am not allowed to play with my father? Does he  love us any more? I want to play along with him, I want to enjoy the warmth of Father-Son relationship from which I have been deprived of ,for so long; I want to sit on my Father’ s lap and listen to the stories…..”.
His mother replied,  ” Love and hatred are two facets of the life.whenever you feel like, that someone else is occupying your position you’ve to toil hard and with your sincere efforts and hard work, you have to attain the higher position. You are the elder son, you will have to prove yourself and make everyone realise your worth.”

That day, Dhruv sat down in meditation,prayed and prayed and till his sincere efforts bore him the fruit. Lord Vishu was extremely fascinated and impresses by Dhruv’s dedication and spirits. He asked him to make a wish. Dhruv asked ” My mother said, we have to toil hard to achieve a higher position. Can you please grant me a higher position so that my father may show little affection towards us? “

Lord Vishnu came to know all about Dhruv.

He made Dhruv sit on his lap and carried him to the acme, the highest position, a permanent position where every one can see him, where everyone can respect and love him, and from where he could prove his worth!

He was also blessed that he would be the one to guide all the people towards the correct path of life over the years to come.

Even today , and many more years to come, The pole star will be the divine symbol of permanence, illuminating our paths towards success and achievements.

Science and mythology are in fact, two facets of the same coin.

In science you believe, what you see;
In mythology you see , what you believe.

If its night out there, then do make a note of the pole star, maybe you can find out some more secrets lying in the divine brightness.

Along the Holy Ganges..

​​Fog studded pathways, shimmering water of the Holy Ganges;

Floating clouds and Determined mountains,

Spirituality on the backdrop of self realisation, the cool quiet atmosphere,

Birds seemed to talk amongst themselves, discussing the pains, the struggles and the blissful moments,

The adjoining rocks creating awesome music in unison with the splashing and flowing water,

The Sun wakes up from the pillows of the snow covered mountains- Yawning and getting prepared to Illuminate the lives of Infinite souls,

The clouds seem to play hide and seek when the rays of the Sun tickle them to laughter,

The bliss is here, The Nature is here, The Mountains say so much, The waters whisper their fascinating tales,

The One up above in the Heavens, smiles and bestows His blessings…

The E-mail Notification(Short Story)

At the end of the Day, Ravi, tired of the office schedule,seated himself on the driving seat,and was clamping up the seat belt,when the email Notification Tone,paused him. He swiped off the Notification bar, “THIS MOTHER’S DAY MAKE YOUR MOTHER FEEL  SPECIAL ONE OF HERSELF”. Ravi was freezed. Lost in thoughts, He is reminded of the Annual Day of his school in Delhi.

The blurred thoughts, cascaded infront of his eyes,like an old movie running in sepia colour mode.

A Lady dressed in A Red Saree with floral patterns on the borders, with her one hand, asking way to cross the road, and the other hand held the small delicate fingers of an 8 year old kid, who even did not know that one day he will be doing the same to his own kids,while at present he was not aware,how to cross a busy road. 
While the traffic flowed through the main road,just like a caterpillar flows through a small leaf, we don’t that’s fast, but actually it is; his Mother held him close to herself. The kid hugged his Mother’s legs, somewhat horrified by the fast moving traffic.

After the next 10 minutes,the kid and his Mother reached the School.
His Mother kept motivating the kid and was trying her best to make the kid remember the dance sequences and the small speech that he had to present before the entire school.

The Programme started. It included a Prayer song, followed by a Cultural Dance, Principal’s Message on the Annual Day, and the performance of the kid.

It was the kid’s turn.
With shaking legs and heart beating enormously fast, he set himself on the centre stage.
He had a Mic infront of his lips. He had a view of the entire school, it was huge, it was enormous, stage fright gripped him like anything, his lips froze, his hands shiverred, his sighs were audible because of the mic, he breathed heavily, his ears were plugged.

He was blank. Completely Blank!

He did not know what he should say. For the intial 30 seconds, he was paused.He closed his eyes.

” C’Mon Son, You Can Do it! “, a faint but powerful voice pricked his ears. Suddenly, his eyelids were set open. It was his Mother.
A sudden impulse of Confidence, Strength, and Power ran through his blood vessels and the brain.
His hands Stopped shivering. He now held them in attention mode. His gripped legs, instantly gained strength to hold the stage firmly. His frozen lips were not frozen any more.

” Good Morning, Everyone. Respected Principal Madam,teachers,Parents and all my dear friends….”
He continued…and never stopped or paused, until his performance was complete.

An applaud was garnered upon him.

After the performance, he asked his Mother, what magic did she do.
His mother said, ” Its not any magic, Its called MotherHood! “

‘Pooo…’ sudden honking, brought back Ravi into present day.

He called up his travelDesk in his office.
” Hey, can you get me tickets to India, ya.., please do so, at the earliest. Yeah, keep the documents ready and hand ot over to Mark, I shall collect the same,at the airport itself.”

Ravi reached the airport collected his documents,Passport and boarded the plane.

The next morning:

” Knock, Knock “
” Who is banging the door so early in the morning ?”, the lady said.

She opened the door with a screerch with her plated and wrinkled hands.

He was Ravi! The lady was her Mother.

” Happy Mother’s Day Maa”, Ravi and his wife said in unison handing over his kid into his Mother’s lap.

Her face was brightened. Radiance suddenly, wrapped up in his eyes.
Her eyes glowed up.

Her joys knew no bounds.

She was Undoubtedly, the Happiest Person in the world!

Dont just wish your Mother on Mothers’ Day,rather
Find some time, Hug your Mother tight and express how much you Love her!
It may not necessarily be the Mother’s Day but any Random Day.
I tell you she will be the Happiest Person in the World!
