Chasing a dream

dreams

It is really difficult to go against the wind but she did what was not acceptable in her family. She continued singing after her graduation too. Then came a turn in her life .She met him in one of the concerts. He was not very smart but he had something which brought her closer to him. He was the one who admired her singing and encouraged her to continue.

“Dad, he understands me even more than myself and I want to marry him. For me love is above all castes and religions. “

These words were still echoing in her mind while she was sitting beside him.

They  left that small town and settled down in this big city called as city of lights and nights.It was not easy for them to find a place in a city where everyday is a new struggle , a struggle  to get the basics necessities of life.They had invested whatever they had to buy this small flat. So a little which was in her hands went for medicines.

He was looking pale and defeated . She touched his head and took out thermometer . He was still having a  high fever.He also lost his job last month due to his ill health.

He used to along with her after his duty in search of a good break so that she could establish herself in this world of singing.

She was a good singer but she had no connection in this industry  and she never wanted to compromise but today….??? She  took her purse and said,”I will be back  sweetheart  before evening . She said and left the home and took a taxi to Theatre World.

She got the offer to sing but she denied as the director wanted some favour from her.

” Favour ? “

“Never compromise in your life”

He used to say such words but the offer she was getting was the one which even established singers were looking for. Moreover it was that dream which she was dreaming since her childhood and today when she is getting a chance she is in delimma. She had chosen him because he supported her for her passion and she decided to go against her family for this dream, this passion only!!

What is more important for her in her life ???

Love?????

Passion???

His health????

Good living????

Dreams???

It was a moment when she could turn her dream into reality but She became entangled in her emotions . Struggling with her emotions she reached at her destination.

Was she ready for some favour ????

Will she or will she not????

The room was all set to record the new song.

Finally she concluded the puzzle of her life. She made herself ready for this favour in spite of knowing what does favour means in this industry.

And this gave an end to her chase !!!!

Unpredictable moments of life

It was a special day for me as I was going to celebrate my 21st birthday. I  was happy with all the arrangements. Suddenly I saw a paper kept under the beautifully decorated box with the shinning  ribbon flowers.

“It must be a gift from my mom”I  thought .

My eyes sparkled with happiness and eagerly I stepped forward . I looked around to get the clue but there was no one in the room except me. I picked up the paper and started reading.  Suddenly the high  waves of emotions tear me apart . The ship in which I was sailing was not belonging to me anymore.

Dear Andy

We have never imagined our life without you but we can’t be so selfish. We can’t keep the truth hidden from you for long. Twenty years back, on the same day,
we got blessed with a flower though it was not belonging to us.Yes, it was belonging to someone else’s garden.

We started cherishing  every moment of our life seeing it growing. We never had an autumn thereafter. It spreads its fragrance in way that we forgot all our pains.But now,that flower is at his full bloom and free to  choose his way.

Not belonging to us…..these words were echoing in my mind.

The memories of my childhood was  flashing in front of  my eyes. The moments of holding hands of my parents and walking towards the school.

A handmade chocolates made by mom especially for me…

The beautiful card I made for her on mother’s day…

Watching a movie with dad….. Long 21 years My heart was not ready to accept the truth.
At the end ,an address was written

Mr David Brown
#279
Street 2…..

Suddenly I stopped reading….should I read the address futher. Why should I ? I had no courage to read the complete  address nor I wanted to. For me, it was meaningless as the life had been so wonderful through out these years that nothing could replace it. We were standing together as a strong mountain against the hard winds of the life.

It is not important where the  seed has come from,what matter is the place where  it is  growing , the soil which is nourishing it …the air which is helping it to  breathe.

They are the one who gave me  a reason to live and  smile, moments to cherish. I had a final look though I had already taken a decision.

As I  took a turn I felt the two pure souls standing behind me with emptiness in their eyes.

I threw that paper on floor and gave them a warm hug. None of us spoke a word but the vibration of feelings and warmth of the love passed through the three bodies.

  • Do you agree with the decision made by Andy? Or He should have left his foster parents? 
  • One more thing ,suggest an another tittle for this story as per your perspective.

Looking forward to read your comments ……😊😊😆💙💚

Strange bond….

She wiped the sweat which was not ready to leave her for a minute with a soft tissue holding in one hand .Usually she used to manage to get a seat to sit everyday but today there was  no place  even to stand in the bus.

Suddenly she noticed a pair of eyes continously staring at her. She became conscious and tried to ignore but she was unable to get away from those two eyes.

After a stop as some passengers moved out of the bus , her heart starts beating faster than the normal as those eyes were coming closer.

Usually she used to come back by evening but today she was travelling in a bus  so late. She again  wiped her face while looking at long beard ,  two round big eyes and a stern face.

“Mam, You can sit here”

He got up from his seat but I was bit reluctant . Why should I ? ?

Though I was really tired after long hours of  working in the college and then making the arrangements for the upcoming event so I really wanted to but…..I was really aware about those beast who are always looking for their prey. So I pretended as if I didn’t hear.

“Mam,you can sit here.”

I felt as by now he  understood my nervousness. His stern face smiled and bit.”I think you didn’t recognise me.How can you? The boy has now grown into a man. I am Joseph . The one who used to play guitar in the college band.”

Suddenly I recalled his face and  was able to make out.

“Oh !You, I was really….anyway thank you”and I sat on the seat next to him. In the meanwhile the bus stopped and he got up to move out . “Thank you , Mam. I  really had a wonderful time in your classes.”

But I was still wondering  when did I conquer the heart  of this innocent boy that he still remembers me   after so many years I was not knowing.

He will be caught in his own creation
He was not knowing one  fine day
No space to move and  no air to breathe
He  tries his hard and push  himself
Into his Struggle to come out some day

He knows it is very painful
but he continues his efforts..
He  grapples ,tussles and
struggles for his emancipation
Why me?  He cries bitterly
as freedom is his tempation

Ah! He finally manages to come out
transformed  into  a  new being
He is happy to get a power to fly
And the  colourful wings
Now she is a beautiful butterfly 

He thanks God Almighty,for choosing Him to go to through this trouble
What for ? As now he understood
HE wanted him to be more powerful
As he was not knowing what he could

Sometimes she flies here and there
Sometimes she sits on flowers
Change is life….
Change is beautiful…
Gives this message to the world…..
