Special man in this Not So Special World



{ "Yes and No" are the short words, which need a long thought. Most of the things in life go Missing due to, either "No" said too early or "Yes" said too late.....}


Wednesday, June 30th, 4:40 AM, A man in his forties wakes up and checks on his watch if it has clicked 5. But, No, to his surprise it's still 20 minutes to 5 A.M. He thinks of taking 20 Minutes nap but his consciousness objected to do so(keeping day long work to be done, in mind).

Hence, Giving consent to his consciousness, He orders his body to stop Procrastination and gets up from his cozy bed. After performing other routine activities he goes to take bath. While taking bath he realises that Pain in his right Shoulder hurting him a lot and he wishes if his son helps him today in his work, it will be a great relief to him. But on the other hand he makes up his mind that he will not ask his son until his shoulder denies to perform further.

Suddenly shrill voice of his Wife destroys the realm of his thoughts.She asks him to make it hurry as Tea is getting Cold.

He comes out and heads to the cupboard placed in the bedroom, takes out a well washed but not so well ironed Shirt-Pant (which he uses while going to his work only) and to save electricity bill he prefers to get it iron once in a blue moon. He goes to the Dining Room. where his wife is waiting for him with Tea. She asks him about his shoulder whether its Still Paining.He tells her,with a smile on his face, that it's Perfectly fine and assures her that she should not worry about it.She nods her Head in affirmation.

Finally, He is all set to leave for his Work (to deliver stuff to the retail owners which he purchases in whole sale), Takes out his Vehicle( uses as carrier ), puts all the bags in order on the vehicle and Starts his Journey. Weather outside is bit pleasant as it's just 6 in the morning and Sun is still busy in playing hide and seek with Clouds, wind is acting against The Sun as it is not allowing him to put its best impact on the earth.

It's 7.30 A.M. and he has come back from the market but it seems that, still it will take 4-5 rounds more to cover all the shops. Sun is shining bright, Celebrating its Win over clouds and one can feel the impact of its heat falling on the body. Showing No Emotions at all he gets ready for the next round, Signs of determination are noticeable from his face.

He is perspiring by now (After completion of 4 rounds), asks a glass of water to his wife. She brings water in Stainless Steel glass.After drinking water he starts packing for the next round, He feels that his shoulder has started paining. It's NOT paining THAT hard But it has started....

He goes for the another round but this time he returns from middle of the way. It has become too Hot outside as Sun is shining on the head and moreover, his Shoulder has started paining at its peak (may be due to excessive work load). Many shops are still left to be covered and he thinks of exercising his next option i.e. to ask his Son for the remaining work.

Being a Father, he changes his mind , thinks to make it done by himself as in his perception boys of his son's age should play and have fun than work. But pain in his Shoulder doesn't allow him to go for his will. He calls his Son but he doesn't replies back as he(son) is busy in watching his favorite movie being telecast on the television. He again calls his Son and this time he(son) comes out, suspecting that his father surely gonna give him some work.

He says to his Son to deliver the things to some shops left, due to his shoulder pain but in reply back he(son) asks him if he can deliver it later and goes back to watch television without listening to the Answer of the Question asked.

He looks at the packed bags and touches his paining shoulder, Tears come into his eyes....


May be because things need to get deliver urgently, or
May be pain in his shoulder is intolerable, or
May be he thinks everyone treat him as Machine, or
May be because his Son did not listen to him, or
May be .................

when ever our parents ask or expect some help from us, we respond like this.
but after reading things like this, we realize (atleast I realize) what I have been doing from past so many years.
