Children’s Prayers: Story #08

      Often the eyes of both the brothers and sisters were fixed on the window since morning. In fact, from the window various things like food would often fall, on which these children would pounce and eat with great fervor. One day Tanuja saw that two children were walking around her window for a long time, so she asked in a slightly loud voice, "Children, what are you doing?" Both the children were in awe for a while. Then the girl gathered some courage and said, "Auntie, often some food items fall from this window, which we eat. But for two days nothing is falling from the window."
      Tanuja automatically understood everything about him. In fact, his son Rohit used to throw food items from the window of his house, which these children used to eat happily. As Rohit's health is deteriorating, the doctor has asked to give only fluids. Tanuja thought that there is a strange arrangement of nature. He who has arrangements to eat cannot eat and those who can eat do not have arrangements to eat. An idea came to Tanuja's mind and brought both the children to her house and fed her full stomach. Then she said, "Children, when you feel hungry, come here. Rohit cannot eat, you will get some peace of mind by feeding." Saying this, Tanuja's eyes moistened. "What happened to your son, Auntie?" The boy asked with great affection. "The son has a serious illness. I don't know if he will be able to recover or not?" Tanuja said sadly.

"Don't cry Auntie, Rohit will be fine. We will pray to God for him." There was such intimacy in the voice of the girl that Tanuja became emotional.
      Five days later, the doctor fixed the date for Rohit's operation. Suddenly that day came. The doctor said that it is a very complex problem. The effort is in our hands, the rest is in the hands of God. The operation started at 10:30 in the morning and ended at 3:30 in the day. As soon as the doctor came out, everyone surrounded him. "Miracle happened. The child is out of danger now. He will regain consciousness in four-five hours." The doctor said happily.

Everyone was surprised to hear

the good news. The prospect of

which was uncertain had

appeared. Tanuja felt as if the

prayers of those two children

were behind this miracle.

Boy
Boy
The twelve-year-old boy started working as a waiter in a bar near his town.  The boy was uneducated, so the owner had told him to do small-big works of the outside.  It was not difficult to speak to less affluent customers outside, yet they did not have any less chatter.  After a few days, the owner disqualified him for the job.  The boy's recommenders were wealthy people, so suspending him was not easy.  Since then the boy started working inside.
Bar
Bar
Among the people who came there was a special old man, who was different in spite of the manner in which he was dressed. His body was elongated, pale complexion and the marks of wounds were visible in the wrinkles of his face. It seemed that he was not taken care of for many years. Some half of his words and some do not understand anything. As soon as he reached there, all the drunkards started laughing. Some would ask him in false sympathy that 'You see the marks of wounds on your face.' He used to ask to bring liquor without giving any answer. He used to pay for things, but still some people used to tell him that 'You must have stolen again'. Showing his eyes to the speaker, he would say - 'Why do you stain someone's decency without any reason.' What kind of decency?' 'Just two days back I saw in front of my eyes you being beaten, cause of stealing someone's belongings.'
Old man
Old man
People who knew him used to say that 'he had studied history and literature, but could never pass any competition or get any definite job.' Therefore, he gradually became poor, even the condition of begging came. His writing style was good and work was also available, but due to the habit of drinking alcohol, the paper-book, pen, ink received for work would disappear within a few days. Because of this, there was no one to give him work.

One day, looking at the books of account, the owner said - 'The old man has not come here for a long time, he still has twenty coins to be borrowed.' The boy was told by a customer two days ago that 'the old man leg broke.' As soon as the boy looked at him, he said, 'Now he got harsh punishment from the security personnel of the merchant as a result very bad happened to him.'
Bar house

It was the afternoon time. There was not a single customer in the shop. Suddenly the ears heard a voice. The boy peeped outside, the same old man was sitting there with the support of the wall. The face was dark and even more vulnerable than before. The whole outline had changed. He had somehow come there wearing an old and torn coat. Seeing the boy, he said 'A cup of wine.' The owner took out own neck and related it. 'You still have twenty coins left on loan.' The old man somehow raised his head and said, 'I will repay this loan next time. The cash payment for now will be done. There were expressions of prayer in his eyes, as if he was praying. By that time more people had come. He took out six coins from the torn pocket and handed them over to the boy. After a while he again emptied a cup and slowly walked away with the noise of sarcasm and laughter. The boy did not see the old man after that.

Child: Story #07

The bus full of passengers was moving at its own speed.  People were happy knowing that we would all reach our respective destinations at the right time.  Things are natural and way smoother according to common opinion.  The bus had to cover a distance of about twenty five kilometres.  The twenty-kilometer route was like an L, with one in both sections and the other a bridge respectively for the course of the river.  When the bus was about to start passing through those two routes, the driver's mobile started ringing and it was reported that 'one of the two bridges has broken due to which the road is closed'.  The driver of the vehicle has several routes to know.  The river flowing under the two roads forms a right angled triangle with the roads.  A kutcha road some before the river meets the same L-like road before one bridge and after the second bridge.  The driver decided to proceed through the same unpaved route.  The road was rough due to which the bus was shaking as it moved.
Road
Road
A child stood at front door of the bus. A small child, five to six years old, thin and weak body. Despite this, there was a deep expression of confidence on his face, which had forgotten any trouble. The bus stopped at one place and the child got down from the bus and climbed with confidence. His mother was looking outside carelessly with the child sitting in the bus. Anticipating any imminent danger as the bus hesitated and the child stood at the door of the bus, a woman sitting in the bus said to the child, 'Where is it standing there? Come in and sit properly.' The child just stood there. The driver had ignored even seeing it. He was driving with all his engrossment. A car going in front suddenly stopped. The driver immediately applied the brakes. All the passengers sitting in the bus suddenly leaned forward. The child shook a little, but stood there.

The bus was about to stop at the bus stand, the child's mother got up in a panic and reached the door and signaled the child to get down. The child jumped off. He turned upside down. Luckily, it was just too slow. The driver said 'wait for a while' but ignoring the advice of the driver, both got down. It was a good coincidence and experience, mother and child completed their journey safely.

Old Woman: Story #06

An old woman lived in a village far from the city, she had two daughters.  She worked hard all her life, raising daughters and marrying them both with all her earnings.  The eldest daughter was married to a shopkeeper selling rain protection items, while the younger daughter’s husband worked as a washerman.

Sunny
Sunny

There were two special conditions in the conditions, one sunny and the other rainy.  On a sunny day the old lady used to worry about her elder daughter, “It is such a nice weather, the sun is blooming. Why would anyone buy a raincoat in such a situation? People have no problem, the elder daughter’s husband’s shop will be closed.”  ”  The more she thought about the rain and the eldest daughter, the more sad she became and eventually started crying.  Similarly, when the clouds came and it started raining, she used to worry about her little daughter, “How will her wet clothes dry now? Her job is to clean the clothes and iron them. Her job is to stop.  So what will she earn and what will she eat?”  In this way, whether it was sunny or heavy rain, in both the circumstances, she used to get very sad and started shedding tears.  Her neighbors also got tired of her condition and named ‘the weeping old lady’.

Rain
Rain

No one said anything nor gave any suggestion, but a thought came automatically in the mind of the old lady that ‘meet some saint’.  The old lady made up her mind and met a saint.  She was curious to know why she is always crying!  When the old lady told her confusion to the saint, he started laughing.  Said, “There is no need for you to cry now. I will show you the way to be happy.”  Immense reverence for the saint had already made a place in the old lady’s mind.  She sat down in front of the saint with folded hands with both her hands.  The saint said, “Now you don’t have to worry, only one small change is to be made that now you have to think in reverse. On a sunny day you have to think of your little daughter that her actions will go well and those who are rainy day has to think about the elder daughter that her shop will run well.”  Eventually the old lady understood things.  After meeting the saint, no matter what the weather was, she was not seen crying but smiling.  Now for the people she became a ‘smiling old lady’ instead of a ‘weeping old lady’.

While coming home on the weekend evening, there was a discussion between Ramesh and Umesh that tomorrow morning the farm house near the city would move.  The main thing was that entry is allowed for common people also with certain conditions.  The special thing in those points is not to pluck the flowers, but to let them bloom for the sake of beauty and fragrance.  In a matter of words, the day passed, both of them reached their respective homes.  After some rest after dinner, Ramesh got engrossed in online work and could not remember when midnight had passed.  The thing was that in the morning he has to go there with Umesh, where is different and new.  His work was completed at two o’clock in the night and got satisfaction and after sending a message to Umesh to come late in the morning, he slept.

Fog

Umesh had slept at the right time in the night, so early morning on Sunday his eyes opened and after some time he looked at his mobile and got a message from Ramesh along with other messages.  Thinking of seven o’clock in the morning, it was decided that after two hours we would go.  Ramesh had not yet woken up due to late start of rest and holiday.  There is almost silence on the streets and roads due to the holiday in office and school.  It is not today that children are going to school and the sounds of bicycle bells.  It is winter and when Ramesh looked outside at nine o’clock in the day, he found that there was no trace of sunshine.  Due to dense fog, some distance is not clear even further and the road is wet without rain.  Due to lack of favorable conditions, even normal work becomes difficult but necessary tasks are definitely done.

  After the station and outside the window kept observing various scenes such as outside the city where the soil appeared in its colors in the empty space, greenery was seen in the places full of crops. The mustard field with the specialty was different from others and attractive because of its yellow flowers, it looked as if someone had spread a yellow sheet in the green fields. On the ridges of the field, small and big trees stand like guards, with their branches as poles.

I left home at 07:18, by roadways bus at 09:16 from one bus stand to another, by auto rickshaw at 09:21 to railway station, at 09:24 to platform and at 09:25 to platform 3 Arrived at. I received berth number 30 of compartment number AB1 of the train at 09:57. Train started at 09:58 and TT came at 10:01 and confirmed the seat after checking the ticket.

After the station and outside the window kept observing various scenes such as outside the city where the soil appeared in its colors in the empty space, greenery was seen in the places full of crops. The mustard field with the specialty was different from others and attractive because of its yellow flowers, it looked as if someone had spread a yellow sheet in the green fields. On the ridges of the field, small and big trees stand like guards, with their branches as poles.
 

My eyes went to two big trees standing on two different sides of a puddle, on which were sitting many white herons, flying and coming to each other tree. Suddenly I remembered the time of my childhood when we used to make and fly paper airplanes, which would fly from one house to another and when they were returned by childhood friends, they would fly back.

  A duck was floating in the water at some distance from the railway tracks and a wave was forming behind it like the smoke behind a rocket flying in the sky. The shadow of the tree started to twinkle in the mirror and it became a new style of design. Exciting freelancing forms of blue, dark green and sky blue. Due to the angle of the sun being less than forty-five degrees, its shadow longer than the object started drawing pictures on the compartment of the train, which were entering the way of the players and registering their presence.

After sunset, darkness began to wrap around the trees, the near view becoming distant and blurry. People welcomed the arrival of night with lights, a variety of resources adorned the roadside and homes. I covered 520 kms of my 987 kms journey, spending most of the day time watching nature comfortably outside the house.

If seen, there are no big farms in the city, due to which there are scenes like outside, then in the pictures. Too many houses and too wide roads, little space for greenery such as a divider in the middle of a road or vacant space on both sides.

There is a very old tree especially at a crossroads, it also appears from people’s telling and seeing. The storms, rains and winds have damaged it, but the forest department officer has stopped from harming this tree in any way. Even though the paths were made differently, but for years this tree is standing there with its natural environment.

Vehicles are running in the distance, it seems as if the stars are running on the ground! Everyone in the rail compartment is awake and the situation is telling that everyone hiding in the dark is sleeping till the next day. For a while the train stopped at a place where the bushes were mixed in the color of the night. In the presence of fireflies, the flowers of the forest were visible with the color of the leaves becoming the center of attraction.

After nine o’clock in the night my co-travellers started preparing to sleep, I also thought that after midnight, at two o’clock, I have to get down from the train at the designated place, then I went to sleep. I opened my eyes at two o’clock in the night and checked my mobile and found that the station where I have left for is about to come. After getting off the train, stayed in the waiting room of the station for some time, took lukewarm water and tea from the canteen stall. I found the time before dawn in the present atmosphere with the coming news of dawn and finished my journey by reaching my designated place at dawn with the aroma of dawn in the air.

Story #02: Stroll

A man went out for a walk outside the house in an open environment. The rough sides of unpaved roads and trails made by people’s traffic and farmers’ vehicles. Green fields on one side and water flowing in the river on the other, making the air soft. The cold sun rose and suddenly dark clouds covered the sky. There was an old man guarding the crop in that deserted place, who gave him a place to stay in the rain. It was raining and the two were talking. It was ten o’clock in the day and there was no umbrella to go out. It was time for breakfast and he was hungry. It was a good coincidence that the old man shared and ate his breakfast, which satisfied both.

Away from home
Away from home

Time is not always the same, change has to be supported by all because nature operates on its own. The direction of the wind changed and the weather changed, then the sun came out, in which the smell of earth was still left. Greeted at the time of meeting, now it’s time to bid farewell. The one who was there stayed there and the one who came left for his appointed place. The far away object is not visible and even if it is visible it is blurry. There was no such determination while leaving the house, but by looking at it, he had come a long way. People were waiting at his house that when will he come back? It was Sunday and the children were also at home among those waiting. Although everything was known through the mobile call, still the wait remains.

He was walking on his way back, eyes looking for some special plant which is not in his garden. He brought with him two such plants which give flowers and fruits after the rainy season. There was some fatigue but got the experience of living in some other environment outside. On reaching the destination, the journey of one and the wait of the other was completed.

He had left home by train to meet his known relative. The railway station was a short distance away, so reached on foot, it was a pleasant morning. Received the ticket from the first ticket booking counter of the eleventh station of the latter station. They had left after seeing the time and the train was also running on its scheduled time, due to which the train came in a while. The journey began, a distance of about five kilometers between each station, at each station the old passengers disembarked and the new ones boarded.

The children in the train compartment were excited to see the toy seller on the platform. Although there are toys in homes too, yet new toys are bought by the Guardian at the choice of the children. There were many people selling essential goods and food items such as those selling ripe bananas and those selling roasted peanuts. One of the features of the food sellers was to provide an additional nature friendly pouch with their belongings and a polite request to ‘collect the peels in these bags to facilitate cleaning for the sweepers’.

In the journey, some unfamiliar people shared their views and behaved like good human beings. They also listened to them and admired each other’s actions, like a familiar person. At the seventh station of the journey, a friend of his age boarded in his compartment. Meeting him yielded a Bachelor class classmate, reminiscent of old memories. Went alone but there was a happy coincidence, new people met, old people met and the journey became pleasant. Those who met him also invited the new acquaintance to meet with their contact number.

He got off the platform from the train at his destination station on time, was about to meet and go ahead, doing bye-bye with distant hand gestures. The roads outside the station were shaded with trees to give shade to the wanderer. In no time, she covered a short distance on foot and came close to her from afar and hugged her.
