Udaan #FridayFotoFiction

This time I thought I should experiment with what I write. Only time will tell, how I fair in it. 🙂 But of course, all my stories will remain to give out a thought, urging you to ponder on it. 🙂 Hope you enjoy, Udaan – a wordarry inspired by this week’s #FridayFotoFiction prompt.

*Beep Beep* The alarm went off at 4 am.

Renu woke up in a frenzy. Ensuring to not make much noise, so Ammi doesn’t wake up.

It was time to go to work and nothing excited her as much as her work did.

Renu quickly got ready and dashed off before the day break. Being the captain, she wanted to be early.

Renu made the flight announcements and even gave the weather updates and anecdotes about the flight. She wanted to make sure, every passenger enjoyed their journey.

“Ladies & Gentlemen, we are taking off into the clear blue sky!” she smiled as the flight took off.

“Kya kar rahi hain Renu? You’ll be late to school again.” Shouted Ammi, dragging her, off the empty flight that had crashed in the village 2 months ago.

“Ammi, main pilot banungi na?” “Tu Jo Chahe Who Banegi Renu” said Ammi tearing up.

An Afterthought by OpinionatedMua

Dreams that every girl has as a child slowly changes as she grows up and somehow becomes more limited. From ‘I want to be an astronaut, a pilot, a scientist’ to ‘I want to find a prince charming, a good husband and have a good life”. Nothing wrong in wanting a good life and a good husband, but the dream to achieve something more, somehow dwindles away. I strongly believe it’s the parents who can change things for he kids and urge them to be much more. Just because they are girls, the ultimate need not be marriage and kids, unless of course she chooses it herself.

  1. I agree with you, Akshata. However, I’d add though often it’s a girl’s dreams which don’t find wings, at times there are boys too, who are not allowed to pursue their dreams under family pressure. Girls we know but the situation with boys exists today as well. Sometiemes, the boys are given an ultimatum to carry on with the family business. I hope each one gets to pursue their dreams.

  2. That is such a wonderful take on the prompt. Everyone is allowed to dream but yes be it boys or girls they should be allowed to try them.out atleast once before giving up. Though now girls are progressing in various sectors of life.

  3. This is quite an interesting take on the prompt. Hopefully we can create a world where girls won’t have to think twice about their choices. Thanks for participating in #FridayFotoFiction.
