Some people don’t believe in God and always question him. Most of us define God as the one who has created this universe , the one who has created us and try to find him. But we never realise our creator is around us, the one who make sure that we always smile, the one who sacrifice so much for us to make sure our lives become a perfect one. She is the one who has created us , our mothers.
My mother sacrificed her life for me, for her family. But still I see her in my dreams, alive and always inspiring me to move ahead in life by overcoming all the difficulties. I know she is watching me from heaven and guiding me in the right direction through one or the other way.
You can’t deny the fact that Mothers are epitome of sacrifice. Sometimes A son can go wrong but a mother is never wrong!
Hats off to all the mothers of the world. Make her feel special every day so that you don’t regret later!
Happy Mother’s day to all !
Set It to Rights-Daily Prompt
My mother was suffering from Kidney failure for over 5 years. Her agony and pain was very deep and regular dialysis was breaking her day by day. She was fighting each and every day to bring smiles on our faces because she knew that our happiness was to see her alive. I remember those nights when she was not able to sleep because of her pain.
I remember those days when she felt better. Right in the morning, she cooked delicious breakfast for me and saw me to the gate and always waited on the door when I came back from college. Those days have gone, now I don’t see my mother waiting on the door but she is watching me from above. She was admitted in the hospital for a minor operation of fistula for her water dialysis .
It was over a month and I visited her twice as my exams were going on. My father hid all the complexities happening with her, from us. And when she was about to give up on life support system , my father finally told us. It came as a shock, the unbearable grief. She was on life support system for over 4 days and when I finally touched her feet in the ICU , two hours later she died. It was like a final farewell she wanted from me to leave this painful world. My father told me she was asking for me in her last days.
I know I cannot bring her back to set things right for her, for us but one thing I definitely want to do, to say final good bye to her with her ears listening and her eyes watching me. Maybe in the dreams I can say that but actually she is always alive in my dreams, when I am sleeping. I will always remember her sacrifice. Your life is so precious and you do not realize it until someone sacrifices for you.

Hello Friend, Life sometimes become very difficult to lead. When you are happy and things are going in your way, you want to enjoy every moment of it and you don’t want that moment to pass. But my dear friend, happiness is a very rare commodity which do not last eternally. Bad time will also come and will shake you from the inside very badly but you are not suppose to give up. One of the greatest Roman philosopher, Cicero had rightly said, “Whoever is brave is a man of great soul”. You should follow his words, you should learn from the words of greats, you should learn from the nature, the earth and the sky. You should be like water in difficult times and flow like a river on rough, and difficult path very smoothly. Like water, transform yourself into ice in extreme cold and in extreme summer, transform yourself into vapor to reach the sky and come back on earth in the form of rain to slake the thirst of livings. In short, you should learn to mould yourself according to the difficult situations like water and face every difficult situation with courage. You should learn to become tough like earth who had seen the worst days of her life, from being a ball of fire to a ball of ice but she never complained about that and at the same time she sacrificed every day to see you alive. My dear friend life is very short , do not panic in difficult times, face every difficulty with courage. Life is like a war and you are suppose to fight it till the end , till your last breath. So be a Warrior! “How well he fell asleep! Like some proud river, widening towards the sea, Calmly and grandly, silently and deep, Life joined eternity.” -Samuel .T. Coleridge with love and support, piyush
It has been one whole year, completely dry without a post. It is like roaming around in a desert seeing nothing to get inspiration for writing. You become numb and you are not able to feel anything around you which a hopeful soul can see very easily. You are like stuck in between the scattered stars above you and the beautiful drops of water on the grass, shining below your eyes. These elements , these omens of nature are crying out for you to wake you up from this dreadful dream and make you embrace the mother nature once again who has never abandoned you. It is only you who had given up on her many times.
Your life is so full of reasons to ignore everything around you because most of the time you are involved in some kind of chase to achieve something which you have always dreamed of. If you are not able to achieve that ,you end up with nothing . You have given up everything to achieve that personal goal and in the end you get nothing. This makes you numb and selfish and you are not able to see the world beyond you. Success never comes in your way all the time. You really need to continue with your hard work and at the same time connect yourself with others. Try to think beyond yourself, surrender yourself to the nature and it will automatically heal you and will guide you towards a happier path.
We should try to understand that heaven is not a place but a feeling when we do something for others . Writing is one such activity which is selfless . A writer always find one or the other way or reason to write and he is always hopeful. He is a selfless person and he inspires his readers, share their grief , help them to understand things and motivate them to move ahead in spite of many falls.
Words are like bones and flesh without life. A writer is an Alchemist who transform them, gives them life to bring changes in the life of its readers.
I hope this year is going to be full of inspirational chapters for all of us because that is more important than the results or success !
