The Shadow of your Smile


Long back a little girl would get disturbed during the rainy season because she was not allowed to play out.

During those days she would seek the coziness of her dad’s smile which made her gloom go away instantly.

The girl’s understanding became clearer and she became a happy woman.

Once again it was a dark night casted with blind clouds… Father! She longed for him, but it was not possible.

Suddenly her heart guided her towards the direction of positivism. Again she was in the shadow of that smile which made her cross the obstacles with less effort and more confidence.
