Mum !!!

‘And where exactly do you think you are going?’

‘My evening walk?’

‘But, where are you heading? How long will you keep drifting? I’m getting older by the second’.

‘O maa! Not now…I don’t know whats written, do I?…. I’ll be back in an hour’.

‘Huh! But you chose to drift, didn’t you? You quit to find new paths!…..You knew what was written then? You just knew you were in a stalemate, didn’t you?’

‘NO, I didn’t know!…nor did I have any illusions…I just followed my heart’.

‘Huh! You don’t have the luxury, girl…Dreams are better at bedtime. Don’t chase an illusion. You will only fall flat with a void too tough to handle alone’.

‘Maa, I don’t know about my dreams or what I am in for. And the recession isn’t helping either! The thing I’m sure about is, that, I came back for you….Bye..will be back in an hour…keep the dough ready’.

  1. Ah… So you did manage to come up with something. 🙂

    Mums are tailor-made to fret and worry. *sigh*

    That’s what makes them all the more endearing. 🙂

    Peace.

  10. Nice fiction as always vinnie. The deep significance of walk as life and a mothers worry for the child was put very neatly. Unless I read more into it then was required. 🙂

    BTW, I wrote something about mothers as well. But I know you’ll be there shortly. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Velu

  12. we had gone for dinner @ mainland china ‘n there was this mothers’ day card with some ‘hungry hippo’ offer – these darn folks try to sell food thru’ mothers’ day senti!! n u talk of recession 🙂 life, u know, is ironic to its chromosome, what we make of it… business, the vision!

    i aint quite these mamma day, pappa day kinda lad ‘n so mom gave me a u-know-what-forget-it look, (both of us had seen that card n looked at each other) i managed a silly grin n she said.. “i know, remembering 14th feb itself takes lot of GB from ur head-disk!!” 🙂

    but ya… what wud be life if these cares n concerns aint there… dough wud lose its taste 🙂
