Helping Hand

Yesterday it happened, when me with my Mom was there on The Railway Station to See Off my sister.

Everything was happening at its customized manner like,

Train still stood on the platform even after clock surpassed 10 mins from its Scheduled Departure Time, everyone bidding farewell to their near and dear ones, few of them giving instructions about not to take eatables from Strangers and all.

we too performed our well practiced rituals and train started moving, we were waving hands to say BYE-BYE.

Suddenly a Family comprises of three members (Mom, Dad and their Daughter) came out of nowhere and was Struggling to catch the Running Train.....

Daughter Screamed " Dad, get into any bogey !!!! " and she got into one of the compartments.

Her Father followed the same but in one of the another Compartments.

But still her Mother was running with the fast moving train and tried to get into it but failed.. did not quit.. recovered herself and tried again.. (running with moving train and having 2 luggages & one handbag in hands is not a easy task)

She slipped twice and recovered herself, finally managed to make her way into it..

But at a small cost, Her Handbag !!!

{ Trio would be thinking at that time, if few things could have left undone, they could have caught train easily, they must have realized the value of time by that time But above all they must be wishing that everyone of them boarded train safely and her Mother would be thinking about her Handbag only-things which were in the bag, how will she manage to get duplicates of the documents, if any...

we together with many other people on the platform reached near the spot  where handbag fallen, were waiting for the train to pass by to collect the handbag so that we could  contact them if we get any details regarding their whereabouts..... }

Suddenly Train Stopped and Cloud  of  thoughts got disappeared...

We all were thinking that any of them would have pulled the Chain and started looking down at the handbag lying there in the space between platform and track...

All were looking at each others faces and don't know from where I Got the Guts n bent down to pull that Handbag Out...

Me bent down on my knees, my head touching train's outer shell, trying to reach to the handbag.. but couldn't reach.. had to go bit more deeper..

And my Mother was screaming, " Aman !!! Don't do that " she was about to cry..

But i could not concentrate on her voice and pushed myself a bit deeper.. this time My head got stuck between train and platform.. for a while i got bit scared... what if train starts Running...

Recovered my self and tried to reach the handbag still fell apprx 30-35 centimeter short.. i asked for for something so that i can pull that out... someone gave me a small hammer and reminded me to make it hurry as train was about to RUN... i again went down n with the help of that Hammer tried to pull handbag out.. this time i reached...

As soon as i withdrew my head out of that space.. train started to move again.. i tried Pulling that handbag, it got stuck in one of the small taps installed over there for tracks washing purposes....

My Mom was Screaming at her loud.. as it was quite obvious for a Mother.. whose Son is putting himself in danger for the Strangers...

finally i pulled out the handbag.. and RAN as fast as i could.... fastest i have ever Ran...

Reached to the Compartment which her father Boarded and handed over handbag to him....

His happiness cannot be defined in words...

As i was coming back to my Mom, everyone was praising me and was giving me blessings, few said, "what a bravery... !!!! "

But My Mom, almost tears in her eyes, held me and hugged me hard. As if i have returned from a long Journey... and told me one thing " Promise me you will not do anything like this in future... we want you.. not this selfish world around us, you are our evrything... what if.....     " and she cried...

I dont know i was right or wrong...

did good or bad,,,

but from the very next time .. i will think about my parents and then for anyone else...

I AM SORRY Mom and Dad.. I Love you both more than my Life....

With Love
