Friday Fiction- Parents

Friday Fiction Challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff

14 December 2018

Parents

What we couldn’t afford in childhood, so we wanted to give every opportunity to our children to pursue their hobby. 

They said music, we ran for the musical instruments.

They showed interest in DIY, we hurried for the toolkit.

They said computer we bought it.

They said world trotting; we were ready with the globe and maps.

Our son joined navy at 18 and daughter got married as soon as she finished studies.

We were left with all the items to look after.

Don’t have the heart to sell them.

Just have a good laugh when we are all together.

Friday Fictioneers-4 JULY 2014/ Revenge

Posted on

One comment, in fact, a story from my friend ‘Eric Elagan’ impressed me so much that I’m reblogging my own post with his story so readers can enjoy.
” After winning the bloody Kalinga War, the Maurya Emperor Asoka was devastated by the carnage he wrought. Wrecked by remorse he embraced Buddha’s teachings. But he did something else that poets and scholars overlooked.
‘Raise a statue in my likeness,’ he said. ‘And place it in a spot where animals will defecate on my likeness and the lowliest creepers will violate my body. And this will be just. Let history say, behold the Great Asoka who has humbled himself to such treatment in the public’s eye, as atonement for his terrible sins. That will be my lesson well-learned for eternity.’

Revenge

The muck, moss and pigeon poop on the statue made me feel sorry for the king whose statue it was.

He must have had a false notion that coming generations will remember and revere him as all arrogant egoists have.

Guide told me how he burdened his subjects with excessive taxes to raise funds for his statue and tortured people who could not pay. Many died of poverty, hard work and starvation.

I am sure they were reborn as pigeons.

Now they were taking revenge by pooping on his statue as he could not harm them, except giving them a glare.

( I love helpful criticism.)

Better Deal

“Why me, didn’t I deserve a better deal’, I always whined, whenever I thought life is depriving me.

Parents and siblings always tried to show me the brighter side of everything with, ‘God loves you more.’

Today my slice of bread was not whole so’ less butter’ it meant.

I moaned.

Mother laughed, ‘it’s not my fault, and you were late so you get what is left.

Father intervened, ‘ it has a heart in it. What a lucky girl! , the mother has given you her heart.’

Siblings pounced on it.

Now we all had a piece of mother’s heart.

Unforgettable Bath

He should have gone home straight after completing his job, as was arranged.

But, he decided to look around, envying the way these super rich lived.

What attracted him most was a, magnificent bathroom fitted with facilities beyond his imagination.

A well stocked bar! This was irresistible.

What he needed, he assured himself, was a luxurious bath and a good stiff drink. Bottle in one hand he immersed himself in the bathtub filled with lukewarm water and fragrant salts, and switched on the music.

Slowly he drifted into a heavenly sleep.

Morning found the poor fellow surrounded by the policemen.

 

Friday Fiction- Justice delayed…

Justice Delayed…

Justice delayed is justice denied.

The victim had evidences, witnesses, public and media sympathy and strong belief on the judiciary.

The accused had money, power and a shrewd lawyer who stretched the case so long that he had enough time to buy witnesses, destroy evidences and build proof that he was not present at the place of crime.

Public sympathy died after initial candle march and few days mourning and media lost interest as it thrives on TRP.

Victim lost the case, belief on the judiciary and hope.

Without hope died victim’s soul.

Only body is waiting for the actual burial.

Vengeance Spree

‘Can you see the horses talking in human voice?’

‘There is nothing you drunken fool and after one bottle even stones talk to you. ‘She switched off the light and was gone.

They came near haughtily, ‘we are ghost of horses you killed either take either to revenge or for meat.’

‘I can’t even dream of that, I love horses,’ I stammered.

‘You human beings are not reliable; you’ll not shy away from eating even human beings if starving.’

’I can’t even dream of it. ‘I was shaking.

‘Better not.’ They said menacingly, ‘we are on a vengeance spree tonight.’

 

 

Friday Fictioneers- Tradition

Friday Fictioneer hosted by Rochelle Wisoff– My friend gives us a photo prompt every week alongwith finest of stories and here I take whole week just to understand what is it all about and what and how to write a story in just 100 words.

TRADITION

She comes to India from Netherlands to learn music with her huge western Cello.

She finds it embarrassing and uncomfortable to sit on the chair  while her Guru sits on the floor.

She collaborated with her friend to make an Indian version of it, smaller in size than its western counterpart so she can sit on the floor with her guru.

She had no clue that her life will take a new turn. She finds her love, got married and makes India her home.

She is a fine example of Indian Guru Shishya ( Teacher and desciple)tradition.

ROOFLESS

 

 

‘Be grateful for the roof on your head, millions lives without one and had to survive scorching heat, rains, flood and rough weather. ‘ Mother said.

 ‘Ha! I was destined to be your child and have one on my head. I’m blessed to find shelter under you both.’

 ‘We are not rich; no one knows what will happen one day so always be thankful for whatever you have got.’

 I learned the hard way.

Sudden demise of father made us vacant the government accommodation we were occupying.

Till we got another shelter, we were roofless for few hours.

Scars

Ruby has to cross the lonely footbridge daily on her way to school. She goes and returns with friends, and still mother never forgets to remind her strictly to never pass the bridge alone. Though their colony is very safe, security guards are posted everywhere.

Ruby wonders why mother is so scared. She asks mother.

Mother looks in her eyes. She is so young and innocent; she will not understand it now.

Once mother made a mistake of crossing a footbridge all alone when she was young.

Mother still shivers.

Time heals all wounds but some scars never fade away.

 

 

 

Friday Fictioneers- SHOPPING MALL?

Posted on

Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochellewisofffields

SHOPPING MALL?

This is the biggest shopping mall but with a difference.

Don’t get mislead by the closed shutters.

Behind them are stocks of various types of weapons.

They are to be sold to terrorists and developing countries to fight their neighboring countries over border disputes.

One thing is sure, however greedy these suppliers may be but no one can blame them for being biased.

They supply weapons without discrimination.

This is how they become richer and powerful and developing countries become poorer by purchasing weapons to gain power over their neighboring countries without thinking about their own important issues of development.
