So after months, I finally won #FridayFotoFiction. Woohhooo! It was unbelievable really and totally unexpected. I had set out thinking I would get better at telling stories and winning it sure felt I had made progress. Read my story She Knows that won, also read Rahul (who won twice ;)) stories while you are at it. 🙂 Here is my take for this week’s prompt – As You Sow, So You Reap. Hope you enjoy this wordarry.
As You Sow, So You Reap #FridayFotoFiction
“It will be just like your college days, I promise. You’ll make new friends and even have time to reread all your favourite novels.”
“Sunitha, why? Why do I deserve this” sobbed Vini, “Why at this age?”
Vini had turned 60 yesterday and this was the gift her son decided to give her. A permanent stay at a high end Vrudhashram in Mussorie.
Sunitha hugged Vini as she shed a tear herself. Inspite of working in the Vrudhashram for 5 years, she still couldn’t stop herself from crying everytime a new entrant came there.
“Vini, you have soo much life to live yet. I understand your pain but trust me you’ll love it here.”
Heartbroken Vini opened the door of her room and stood shocked gaping at the wall.
Vini’s mother smiled at her from the picture as if mocking her.
Life had come a full circle.
An Afterthought by OpinionatedMua
Karma as they say it comes a full circle. What your kids see you do, will also make them want to do the same to you. Parents are a core part of who you are and who you become. They have taken care of you throughout their lives. Then why is it that it becomes a job to look after your parents? They will get difficult and their thoughts won’t match yours, but it sure doesn’t mean you should not live with them. Sometimes you have to be the grown up and take care. Love them for who they are, exactly the way you expect them to love you for who you are. As You Sow, So You Reap is a proverb that holds good for soo many things in life. Do good to get good back.
