The Blue toy car : bridge all the Gaps!

The festive season had already started. The little boy shomu had collected enough money in his piggy bank to buy a new toy this year. Every year,festivals were the time when shomu and his Parents went to the fair market for new clothes and some toys, which were to be used for the coming year. The winter clothes added to their budget but Shomu’s father Mr. Karmakar,who was a Labourer in the only factory of the village,never hesitated to spend a little more than what the budget permitted,especially when the festivals knocked at the door.

 The family spent a good time together. They had fun, frolic and enough of street food to satisfy their year long appetite for the crunchy ‘GolGappas’, Chaat and Samosas. They rode on the ‘Not so’ Giant wheel that arrived at the village during the season. They enjoyed Shooting balloons at the local stalls, Watched the Movie in the village theatre and  had a good time to replenish and rejuvenate themselves for the coming year.

The family sat at a table neighboring the food stall. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the market and the adjoining streets, a lot of life could be seen.

Suddenly shomu noticed a very beautiful toy car in the adjoining shop. His eyes suddenly showed bright reflections. The eyeballs grew big, his heart started pumping similar to a guy craving for a beautiful girl when he falls in love with her in the first sight.

 His face carved big smiles and an insatiable desire to have the blue toy car in his little hands.

His father sensed all the matter in a mere glimpse. He quietly tiptoed to the other end of the shop and called the owner of the toy shop.👋

“Yes!That one👈, can you please bring that here. I will pay you here itself.Actually I just want to surprise my son who seems to be interested in the toy car. Yes that blue one!”

“Sure! Why not. Let me bring it to you”,the owner said with a smiling face etched to his dusky appearance.

His father purchased the toy car and kept it hidden in a bag.

The little boy glared at the toy for few minutes and then moved his face away as he saw the owner picking up and packing in a decent gift wrap.He thought someone else had already bought it and tried to shed off the thoughts of playing with the same. Infact he had already bought two toys, a cricket bat and a Robot and  asking for a car may not make his Parents happy. So, he shrugged all his thoughts about the toy car.

After an hour,they returned back home.

His father called shomu and said,” Son, please get me the wallet from the bag that we had purchased today.”

Shomu found the bag and started searching for the wallet inside it.Suddenly something hard struck his little hands. He instantly took out the article and to his surprise, he found the same blue car in the bag. And his happiness knew no bounds. 

It happens in movies but he literally jumped up with joy😂😂😂😂😂🙆. He ran to father and hugged him tight. He wrapped himself around his Father’s thigh. It was definitely the warmth of the love, a love that no one can explain in words!! His father kissed him and launched him high up in the air. The atmosphere seemed to engulfed with bliss.

Sometimes, small moments in life can prove to be biggest moments of Bliss! 

It is the feeling, no one can define in words!!

This love is enough to Bridge  the gap that has grown into our relationships over the time.All We need to do is to give it a try!

Please do let me know your views in the comments section!!☺

#Nutshell

When your mind is independent, You are strengthened to make your own choices,

But 

It does not necessarily mean you don’t need the advice,experience and blessings of Elders to reinforce your choices!!

Basically you don’t want to have a dispute over the choices and hence you don’t care to share it with your elders(obviously, your parents!) who have taken enough decisions to make you wise enough to take your own decisions.

Think about it!! Talk about it! And Don’t be judgemental.

Why not!

​”My eyes were flooded with tears today while watching a reality dance show.It was portraying the relationship of father and son .

Often due to our busy schedule we are not able to give adequate time to relationships.

But once we look behind to our grassroots we release their value.Memories of our past.We may earn Happiness today but past which included our childhood decorated by the boundless love of our parents had in it BLISS which no money can buy.”

Sometimes the reality shows may force you to give a thought to your world and the people around. They may be scripted, but the emotions of the contestants are not at all the fake ones! They give their heart and soul to the competition.

Such moments drive every bit out of you and compel you to ponder over your feelings and somewhere at the bottom of your busily pumping hearts you have engraved your parents. You may not bring it out in open but at the end of the day when you go to sleep,  the fairy tales that your Mom used to tell you to sleep, may cascade in front of your closed eyelids. She used to stir the handfan continuously so that you could sleep in peace.  

Not every person is bad ,probably when we grow up we become too “OCCUPIED” to feel that someone ‘NEEDS’ us even today! 

  • Why not make them smile some more!
  • Why not make them feel strengthened by our small pockets of talk!
  • Why not make them believe that we’re always there for you.
  • Why not we be their innocent,3 year old child once again!

That ‘special’ feeling

Early morning as the first rays of the Sun filtered through the Green leaves of the trees, with each drop of bright morning dew that trickled through the partly dense canopy of the shady trees, and as the pearl like water droplets on the leaf blades of the little flowering plants shimmered in sheer brightness of the saffron sky, I got up to set my feet into the jogging shoes. Instantly, while scrubbing my shoes off dust in my balcony I noticed a girl pretty good in all aspects, was trying hard to shed some of her extra kilos,the task which the people might have inflicted upon her; however she barely needed it.

She looked pretty gorgeous as the Sun’s rays illuminated her pink cheeks, as her little twirl of hair oscillated in harmony, with every movement of her body. Her red top was marked with sweat patches to a small extent, which indicated her dedication for the work out. Her face was tired, however her hands and legs did show any symptoms of the same. They moved with equal vigour and energy.

A little later, when I came back to collect my towel from the balcony, I noticed that her Grandmaa, probably in her 80s , was trying hard to figure out about the exercise equipment.
Suddenly, I had a glimpse of her feet being raised up to the pedal,by the same girl who was working out few minutes ago.
She helped her Grandmaa to climb up the seat and roll the pedals.
An unexpected smile was spread on grandma’s face. Her wrinkles swung in joy. A child’s innocence was typically showcased on her face. Her grey hairs swung and oscillated as she stroked her feet to turn the pedal.
The girl also accompanied Grandmaa in her smile,making the moment even more beautiful!!

#InstaTale 1

One day when we were sitting in the park and ranting all stuffs, from head to toe, from North pole to South Pole everything, literally.

One of us said, ” Guys! You know my parents are so after me. They literally advice me for every other thing. They behave as if I am still a kid. They ask every detail like what have I eaten, when will I go for classes, Have I washed my clothes in a while, Have I kept my room tidy, and blah…blah..blah..I dont understand why exactly are they up my sleeves,like I am a nobody, like I have no individuality, like I am stranded in my own world, Whyyyyy? “

There was an awkward silence in the atmosphere for a few seconds, following which an old man walked past us saying ” You will get to know your ‘why’ when you will become Parents, one day and probably then Your kids may ask you the same question. Reply the same! “, He smiled and moved forward!

All I could do was just musing how can some people be so apt!

#Nutshell

Almighty chose his most courageous and wonderful creation to create and Nurture the world, and called her ‘Mother’.

Value and respect her deeds and sacrifices she makes for you everyday.
One day in the calender is not sufficient to show your affection. Wonder why there’s no ‘Son day’ or ‘Daughters Day’ ?

Make her feel like, every other day is ‘Mothers’ day’.

You may be very occupied, but just send a smiley or make a call and that will be enough for her! For She is your MOTHER

Following dreams??

image

Its really easy to say, “Follow your dreams” , but to actually transform the saying into reality is definitely not a cakewalk!
One has to struggle hard to traverse across the sea of odds, waves of pessimism, and all sorts of danger that may even subject the person’s life at stake.

Think about a random kid, who has no issues with his world, he is carefree, surrounded by his utmost desires, he roams about freely in the ground, he jumps , he sings, he dances, he does all sorts of crazy things, he is nowhere involved in the dillemma of life. He has his world of awesome friends,toys, chocolates and books. He has no compulsions, he has a free life.

The kid transforms into a teenager, he now understands the world better, he has feelings about the good and the bad, he dreams like anything, and the hilarious part is , all his dreams are already true when he looks at them,basically, there’s no ‘How? ‘ in his new world of dreams and desires.

He grows up some more, he gets graduated, he has his dreams in his mind, but its not the time that he could think about it properly, give full time emphasis on it, but he focuses more on earning bread for his family. You must be of the opinion, what if the dream of the person is exactly that will earn him bread too! OHH MANN!
I must tell you, its a myth for most of the dreamers, except for a few who dare and take weigh too much of risks to make it possible.

Once he earns, his life passes by, gradually stacking a pile of dust over his dream book.

What next, he becomes too involved in his new world once again, that he has no time to reconstruct his dreamy mind.

At certain age, when he finishes off his priorities and realizes, Have I lived up to my dreams! What was it , I wanted to do, but I could not!

Its a dramatic condition that arises out then, leaving the person spellbound by his imaginations. That day, may be a new begining for him, or it may be the last day of his dreams. He cannot make a choice then, but that he will himself be carried to a certain path, is definitely the thing that would happen to him.

So, shall i spoon feed you another quote about Life, success, dreams and bla bla blaa…Relax! I wont be doing that for I am no such established specialist in it! LOL!

I would rather say,rewind your life and zoom!
Can you see someone very familiar? They seem to be the ones who created you. They loved you, before anyone else did.

You can leave out the post once you feel like its weigh too much beyond idealism and loving your parents.

Thanks, all those continued with the post….
I will make you see something. Just close your eyes. Visualize the dreams of your parents, if not, just think about, what were the things they dreamt about but could not realize them. Just try to fulfill those. Your dreams will definitely find a way out of your parents’ dreams.

Someday, you will see them smile and that moment will be the best dream that you would have transformed into reality!

Keep Smiling, Keep Dreaming

“The” Mother Speaks!

happy family 133952397

” I had you 9 months inside my womb,nurturing you from a cell to an embryo, from embryo to a foetus,from a foetus to a baby.Every moment when I felt your little kick, It meant the world to me. A new creation was within me, A new world was within me, it made me forget all the pains,comforting myself with Childish Eagerness and Imaginations, I laid my troubles aside. and After these long 9 months, when you came into our lives,the feeling could not be explained in words. A new Life came into our lives. They say that “A woman is re-incarnated when she gives birth to her child.”

I could experience the same.
A woman turned into a mother.
I held your hand, and gradually you started walking laying your small steps on the floor,with care and precision,
You went to school.
You went to College.
You made us Happy and Contented,moreover Increased our Joy exponentially when you topped the School and College.
You got a Job,and made our efforts successful and turned our dreams into reality.
You got married, and made our Lives Successful.
You handled all your responsibilities, with enough maturity and Patience as desired,as its obvious new Responsibilities come up with new strength. They say, ” With Great Power, comes Greater Responsibility “

Meanwhile,I was the same.A daily routine awaited me every morning.
Tea. Breakfast.Lunch.Evening Snacks.Dinner. and the day is done.
Amidst these, I helped you with your lessons. I boosted up you morale whenever you felt low. I was there for you when you had to face the ‘ No So Good ‘ people of the world. I made you a warrior to fight with the world,not with swords or axes, but with Pen and Paper.
I made you learn how to manage your time,not just during exams but for the entire lifetime.
I made you your mouthwatering delicacies, even if I was on fast.
I made you sleep, In the cool air of the handfan; even if I perspired, during Summer days,when there were power cuts.
I washed your clothes, I kept you books and shelves neat and tidy. I did whatever, my mother did for me. I taught , whatever my Parents taught me, and some of my experiences learnt over lifetime. “

“Today, We are Old.
We are weak. We need Strength. We need you to boost up our morale. We need you to stand by us. We need you to listen to our words. We need you to call us up everyday and Ask about our well being. We need you to talk to us. We need you to assure us of Care and Love.
We need you to listen to our sweet scoldings.
We need you to Be What we had once been.
We need you to bear with our mistakes, our over possessive behaviour, our over protective attitude, our extra caring habit!
We are sorry if that causes any trouble to you, but We are your ‘Parents’.
We still want to know what did you have for your Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner.
We still want to know what clothes are you dressed in , so that We may assure ourselves, ” Hmara Bachcha to smart lag rha hogaa!”.
We still want to know your activities throughout the day.
We still want to know your moments of sorrow and Joy, so that we can help and support you and Rejoice and Enjoy,
We still want to know your moments of Success and Achievements.
May Be , I seem to be crazy. But I am your Mother. and You know
“Maa is Maa afterall.”

Our Heart says that you shall always be there for us.
Love You Kids! We are proud of you, You are our dreams turned into reality.”

Because they Need You !

Indian-parents-reading-w-child-300x199 seniors

They NEED YOU indeed

Their wrinkled faces with marks and bruises,with each line depicting its own story

Their Helpless eyes sunk deep enough within their flattened cheeks,still set in the search of Something or Someone,with
the eyelids closing periodically

Their not so healthy bodies lurching in the wheel chairs

Their weak and thin Hands with each vein transparently visible

Their grey white coloured hair, irregularly oriented over their ears and forehead,some coming even to their noses and cheeks

Their framed spectacle,appealing as if it is the only asset they possess

Their dry lips,as if they have not experienced the water droplets for years,half folded inside the only few teeths in their mouth.

Their eyebrows contract upwards with every moment they try to look at you

Just give them a smiling glance and they forget themselves, Their Eyes brighten up,Their cheeks start blushing with Joy, The only teeth in their Mouth is clearly visible as they smile with their lips apart, They Live the moment with all Happiness,Enthusiasm and Joy,Their world is rejuvenated with the flowers of Happiness.

Let them smile,Let them live their Lives some more!!
And Tell Yourselves that THEY NEED YOU INDEED!!!
