After marrying Neil a well-known businessman Rhea looked forward for a hilarious and independent life, but her dreams of self-identity demolished like a sand-castle. It was a man’s-world; Neil like his father and brother found pride in being the benefactor.

“The ladies in our family never go out to work coz they are the big bosses of the family…. So dress, spend, enjoy and look after the family… that’s your only job darling”.

Being a woman of substance, easily available materialistic-happiness was not Rhea’s choice. Now it’s a cold war between the charitable-luxuries and struggling-identity.

She wants to be truly alive, but…

Daisy could not believe life would be so cruel towards her. In only one week everything of hers was snatched away, whatever she possessed slipped away like sand from her hands. Her heart anticipated the black future which she had in front of her. Every tick of the second was making a thumping sound on her wounded heart. She had ruined herself, crying and weeping in alone.’ Will the rest of my life go like this’? She questioned herself. But soon she realized that life demands something more from her, she wiped her tears and stood up with a determination; she dared to do that, which needs an iron heart.

How happy Daisy and Andy were on their engagement day, a month back. It was a red letter day in their life, because they had got green light from their parents after a year long struggle for approval from both sides. They both were delighted, it seemed as they were being showered by blessings. Exactly, two months after their engagement was their wedding day. So, in a very less time all the preparations were to be done, both the families were busy including Andy and Daisy. Everything was to be fixed; the venue, decorations, arrangements, invitations, menus, dresses….and a lot more. Tasks were unlimited and the time was short. Now only one month was left for that much awaiting day….when she turned blue to hear that unbelievable truth.

It was still vivid in her mind, what Andy told her on telephone a week before; she felt that hot liquid iron was being poured into her ears. ‘Daisy, it’s a bad news,’ she became alert…

‘Doctors have diagnosed cancer in my lungs, and it is the first stage………’ After that she could not hear anything else, as she was blacked out. After retrieving her senses she felt that something cruel has snatched away all her happiness and she is left all alone. She couldn’t make out, who was at the grim side, either she or Andy, but actually they both were. Andy’s ill health became Daisy’s ill fate, moreover, Andy convinced her, not to utter a word to both the families regarding his ill health.

As she was trying to emerge from that terrible condition and to act normal in front of her family, Andy gave her another setback. He called her and said that they should break up their relationship, because he did not want her to suffer just because of him. Daisy angrily refused and banged the phone, but Andy kept on trying continuously to make her understand the practicality of the life. Since last week she was in heavy delirium and was finding difficult to face anyone. The idea of being parted with Andy made her go crazy. She wished, whatever she was facing might be her nightmare, so that she can have a bright morning at least.

Passing through the state of imbroglio it becomes difficult for anyone to reach the proper solutions, and Daisy was not an exception, she kept on thinking the way to come out of this state of confusion. She was undergoing a terrible conflict in her mind. She thought that we people are never thankful in spite of having blissful life, but we blame destiny whenever something turn against our wishes. She thought ‘maybe, these circumstances are the test of our love’. Her positivism compelled her to look for a silver lining.

Suddenly, she wiped her tears and gave a call to Andy and asked him to meet her in the evening at their favorite meeting point, ‘The Golden Paradise.’ In the evening they both were in front of each other like strangers, she was meeting him for the first time after that horrible news. He seemed a little feeble to her.

Eventually, Andy asked the reason of their meeting. Daisy cleared her throat and soaked the tears from the corners of her eyes and proceeded, ‘listen to me and don’t stop me! Andy, whatever you advised me, anyone else at your place would have done the same, but now I’ll give you my final verdict’, her voice was firm, she added ‘I am always yours whether I am with you or not, so why not with you? I don’t know what destiny has in store for us, so neither I want to quit nor do I want you to lose the battle’. She further said, ‘I will be with you always and we will marry on the scheduled date’.

Andy’s eyes became wide, he said, ‘what! Are you in your senses’?

She retorted ‘After suffering one full week I have resumed my senses… I have a plan, we’ll marry on the fixed date and you’ll accept your company’s proposal of joining new branch. For our families we will be setting our new home in a new place, but there you will be undergoing your treatment.’

‘Don’t look at the situation through your rose tinted glasses!’ Saying this Andy stood up frantically, but Daisy held his hand tightly and made him sit with possessiveness. ‘Andy please! You do not have any other option.’

It was not easy for him to accept her proposal but her rational arguments made him bow down in front of her decision.

Now, Andy is not alone to suffer his problems, he has his better half with him, ready to face all his troubles. No doubt, their dreams shattered and they fell off on the ground, but that ground is of reality, true love, care, and faith towards each other. Hope they both succeed in their battle and come back as winners.

Wishing Andy pink of health…

She closed her diary with a blow and stood up with force, it seemed like a moment when inner anger leads someone towards danger.

Now there’ll be an end to these dreary nights and gloomy days, walking fast towards the bridge she believed. Mind underwent internal conflict and heart sought comfort.

From the bridge she threw her diary down into the water and saw melancholy drowning…….

A new being stood with dignity on the bridge who believed … ‘life’s a valuable gift to us; if seems difficult to survive in present conditions, change the situations (viewpoint) instead of giving up.’

Soaring over Cloud Seven

Last weekend we got an invitation for a seminar ‘Dare to Dream’, it sounded cool, I thought of witnessing it. When I attended it I realized that it was a blessing in disguise. ‘A flight of seven minutes’ which we took on his guidance is worth mentioning and sharing… He appeared in the room with […]

Seven ATE Nine

Pam is not at all happy with the Face book culture. It has snatched away the crown of an ideal daughter in law from her which she had been carrying with grace and guts since nine years of her marriage. Her sister in law cum competitor, Leena came in the family after the two years of her marriage and was constantly trying to impress mom in law. In the span of seven years she managed to reserve an adorable image in every mind, but was a little less than Pam.

 

Image

The previous day Pam attended a hen party hosted by her best friend Jia, she had to drape herself in a completely stylish evening gown according to the party theme. As it was provided by Jia at the last moment, the choice option for Pam was none.  Firstly, she hesitated to wear the strapless gown but finally she gathered all her guts and rolled in the fun. Back home she was again a normal household person looking after everyone’s needs.

But this time something unusual happened.

Bingo! Her younger sister in law, Leena hit the bull’s eye without shooting. One of her Face Book friends attended that party as a guest member and now she had the pictures of her competitor, Pam posing as a model. A blessing in disguise!

In the evening on the 52 “LED TV Leena showed all the pictures of Pam to the mother in law, as a wonderful surprise. She was admiring the photos exuberantly. Mother in law was awestruck. Pam was speechless.

 ‘Mom, do you know why 6 is afraid of 7? seven years old Nick asked.

‘No’ Pam knew but she wanted him to win.

‘Because 7 ate(8) 9’ laughing loudly he ran to share with others.

‘You are right dear, 7 ate 9’ she murmured.

No one did wrong, she assumes…but finally she was not happy…

 

 

Do you feel the same?

Linking Seven and Several

Image

Walking on the beach she was trying to get the answer to an unknown question. She had wanted to enjoy her life, but something always hindered her. Maybe she could get the answer today.

On the beach a small girl built a sand castle, she ran to call her father to see it; by the time she was back her brother had ruined it. She was sad, father patted her back, brother smiled innocently and she started again.

She smiled to see the girl, a lovely daughter and a sister…she recalled something and proceeded further.

She saw a family of three walking hand in hand, a wife and a mother balancing her roles. Again something clicked her mind and she walked further.

Image

Today the life seemed to show her a connection with the world. The beach scenario filled her mind with new thoughts and many more roles to link with.

She got the answer… all over her life she waited for perfection and postponed celebration. Climbing the life ladder she had been balancing herself and focusing on the steps only. She had always a fear of missing a step or losing her concentration, and suddenly she found that she had reached the middle. She wanted to look down but the previous steps of this strange ladder would disappear once climbed upwards. She was witnessing clarity…

‘From tomorrow why don’t you join me for an evening walk mom; you would have got bored being at home every day,’ back home a daughter in law said to her mother in law.

‘Yeah grand mom… Mom is right!’ said the teenager.

Both felt revitalized.

 

Now she will step up cautiously but will see around to have a wider view of her relations…
