THE ‘MEAN GIRLS’

                                            THE ‘MEAN GIRLS’

 

 

‘’M….o…n…u…’’                                                      

‘’Yes Thamma (this is how Bengali’s call their grandmother) ….”

“Come here….fast….’’

“Coming…… thamma…..”

(‘Monu’, as I was called by all the elders in our joint family of 13 members. Our family consisted of Dadu, Thamma, baba, maa, two of my uncles n aunts, four of my cousin sisters. I was the eldest of the lot. )

I rushed to thamma and found her waiting for me with a very serious face. My mother and two of my aunts are staring still at me… as if I have done something seriously wrong. I stood there totally clueless. Asked them the reason for their agony n those dangerous glares. Mostly I was held responsible for all the messy pranks which my young sisters dumped on me and fled. Finally I was left under the receiving end of all the scolding part, handful of slaps…

LOVE BINDS

Durga puja over… Today is the last day… Dashami morning…
Maya took off her specs, kept it aside and sipped her cup of tea which Reema served along with some biscuits. Reema is her elder daughter-in-law, wife of her elder son Satya. Both of them were married two years ago, now staying abroad. Maya’s younger son Som also got married to Nishi 6 months back and both of them are working abroad. None of her sons have any plans to come back to India, rather they are all trying to settle there only.
Maya, at the age of 67, stays alone in her 1 bedroom apartment in Kolkata. After her husband Anant left her alone, she decided to stay on her own, though her sons wanted her to stay with them turn by turn. But Maya was completely adamant about her stay in her own country, in her own home…

A true life.. A story..

Each and every human being in this world is a ‘story’ by themselves.. We all have our own stories.. Each one of us add to that story every single day from our life.. We modify our own stories.. delete.. and create a new story again the next day.. But we don’t know this..

Juhi had a story too.. She was a girl-next-door with an awesome blend of her dreams and the determination to reach her dreamworld as well..
Studying in st. IX.. She dreamt of becoming a doctor.. Inspired by her father who was also a renowned doctor, Dr.Krishnamurthy. Her mother Shubha was educated, though not a big degree holder or so. She believed in the simplest reality of being a woman is to dream of getting married and that’s it..!!
Juhi’s father and Juhi had similar dreams of Juhi becoming a doctor whereas Shubha, had some age-old dreams of…

Soul Searching

 

Twinkle’s tears were rolling down… She went on wiping them… She was in severe pain.

She willed herself to not check her phone to see if he had replied . It had been about three days now. She hated that she was constantly checking his ‘last seen at’ status and yes, he had logged in just five minutes ago. Yet she couldn’t stop herself. This sinking feeling to find absolutely no communication from him was becoming unbearable, almost torturous.

And then, just as she sat down in her chair, her phone vibrated. With her heart thudding in her ear, she unlocked her phone and stared at the screen. Finally! It was his message.

But when she opened it and read it, she nearly stopped breathing. She didn’t know if he was joking or not. What was this?

Tarun left her.. yes..!! but forever..??!! She held her throbbing heart n…

A ‘LIFE’LESS LIVING

In the middle of the flight, Kiara woke up to go to the washroom. When she returned, she was too lazy to push her way into the middle seat, and with Rishaan readily offering to shift seats, the sitting arrangement changed. With 20 minutes still remaining for the flight to land, a sleep starved Kiara took another power nap, this time holding Rishaan’s right hand more firmly. Rishaan’s other hand, though nervously moved to touch Diya’s. Her heart skipped a beat. Diya pulled her hand away. But a defiant Rishaan held her wrist again, this time firmly and more reassuringly. The changing behavioral dynamics between the three perhaps gave out a foreboding of what was to come in Goa. When the flight landed at the Dabolin airport, Rishaan felt uncanny… his excitement seemed replaced by an unknown fear that he found very difficult to decipher.
Rishaan rang the doorbell. Fathima…

Not Up there… It’s in here…

How much I wish.. I could have helped the world & it’s people to think and calm down their own pain, their worries, their anxeity & stress…

How I wish I could make them realize, the power of the Divine grace…

They think that they are running the world, but for once, yes., just for once, just surrender everything onto Him & see who is running it…

We aren’t running it, but ruining it with our harmful ways…

Give up the worries, let go your control on the world & it’s people, & you will find love & peace everywhere…

But, no… By surrender we think we are giving up, we are retreating..

Alas..!! Surrender doesn’t mean giving up at all, my dear…

It is actually the faith on our own ‘selves’ that boosts our confidence that we can do it, we can achieve…

Complete faith on ourselves bring complete surrender on the Almighty, who is nowhere up there, but here.. very much within ourselves…

Nothing up there my folks.. it’s all in here.. within me.. within you dear…

The Almighty is actually the unlimited eternal power inside us all.. don’t be scared of that power, rather try to have faith and to love it.. loving that invisible power within us is actually loving ourselves…

Let’s keep loving, and this will keep collecting and sealing this scattered world with our love…

Let’s surrender to this infinite, eternal love.. the Divine love.. and have the faith on it ever….

A Loveful soul… ❤
