An Evening in Summer

Standing in my balcony with a coffee in my hand, I can see Sharma uncle’s kids playing on their terrace. Now I want to enlighten you all with a sweet incident that happened yesterday around this time. 

It was around 5 PM. Weather was good as cloud cover was there on the entire sky. As I was passing by the road, I saw two kids playing merrily on the opposite side of road near a wholesale store. I then realized that these two kids belong to my colony only and are Sharma Uncle’s kids. Renuka who is 8 years old is the elder sister of Pawan who is 6 years old.  Suddenly I saw Pawan fighting with Renuka over a chocolate that he wanted to have from the wholesale store. Renuka told him that she wasn’t having that much money to buy that chocolate. She also gave him the option to buy another candy from the store but he was stubborn on getting that chocolate only. Then I saw Pawan getting angry and out of his anger he threw stone on the glass door of refrigerator and it fell down. This made shop owner very angry and he started scolding Pawan. Seeing this I started going to help kids but then at that moment I saw a very beautiful scene. Renuka ran towards home and then returned with her Piggy bank within a minute. She said sorry to the shop owner, opened her Piggy bank then and there only and offered all of the money that was inside it to the shop owner. Then in tears she told the shop owner not to scold her brother and take all the money. She also told him to scold her if he want to. Then she went to console her brother who weeping very badly. Seeing all this shop owner’s temper went down, he smiled and asked Renuka to keep all the money, praised her of her maturity and gave Pawan his favorite chocolate too. While returing back home, Pawan asked for forgiveness from Renuka and at the same time he promised her that he will always obey her and will never do anything that will put her in trouble again. Then they both shared the chocolate and went home happily as if nothing happened. 

That’s the beauty of childhood. A child always looks at the situation with a positive mindset. That moment I also drew a conclusion that the brother-sister relationship is the most beautiful and pure relationship to ever exist in this world. Also after seeing all this, I realized the importance of such lessons in a student’s life. These real life experiences not only make a person a better version of himself but also teaches him how to live in this world with dignity and respect. These morals can never be taught in any school. This shows how much important a summer vacation is in a student’s life.

A Trip

It’s the last day of college. It’s been wonderful four years that everyone have spent while doing mechanical engineering here in Roorkee. Rohan, Sumit and Vikram who have been best friends since day one of college are promising each other that after six months, they will go on a trip to Kasol. After that, all three parted their ways and made a way to their next destination. 

Rohan now works in an automobile company in Delhi, Sumit is working in government sector in Bangalore and Vikram is pursuing MBA from a college in Mumbai. They all are eagerly waiting for their trip. Almost regularly, they share their excitement about the trip while chatting with one another.

After six months, three friends meet in Chandigarh at about 6 AM from where they have decided to go on a road trip. They all greet each other and then started their three day trip. After covering around 50 km, they stopped for buying some snacks. All of a sudden, they see a fast approaching car hits a woman crossing the road. All three rushed towards woman and then took her to the hospital. 

On reaching hospital, Sumit completes all the formalities while Rohan and Vikram can be seen taking care of woman. Doctor arrives and after checking on woman says, “Lady has been hit very badly on head and needs to be operated ASAP” to which Rohan says, “Doctor, Please prepare for operation without any delay. I will pay all the required fee amount”. After about an hour, doctor performs the operation successfully but the woman still remains unconscious. All three friends sleep in hospital only that night. 

Next day at about 11 AM, woman awakens. All three became very happy. Woman on seeing them started crying and told them that it was her son’s birthday yesterday and she was going to temple to pray for her son’s good health. Then she told them that she remains alone here as her son lives in Delhi with her daughter-in-law. She went on telling them how her son refused to take her along with him and how he doesn’t pick up her call. On hearing this, Vikram says, ” Don’t worry Aunty, you now have three more sons. You can call us whenever you want to. Also we will come to meet you at regular intervals.” Rohan also offered her to come with him but she refused as she didn’t wanted to leave her hometown in the hope that her son will come to see her someday. 

Next evening at about 5 PM, she got discharged from hospital. They dropped her home and explained her neighbour on how and when to give the medicine. They also gave her their phone number and asked her to call them in case of any problem. Next early morning as they were leaving, woman said, ” Beta, thank you so much for everything. I don’t know how I will repay you. Also your trip got spoiled because of me” to which Rohan said, ” Who told you our trip got spoiled? We spent all three days with our mother and that’s the most beautiful thing that can happen on a trip.” Then they hugged her and started their back home journey with a satisfaction that couldn’t have came from any other trip.
