A Tom&Jerry Story! (Tom: A 12yr boy; Jerry: A 5yr boy)
Luckily the car is in workshop!
So…a cool evening, a nice walk with papa and mama; Tom and Jerry were enjoying the walk in the green and the bright red sun above!
Tom was walking with Mama, Jerry and Papa were running ahead and playing!
But, at times, technology is a nuisance – papa got a call – his friend!
As usual, papa walked the talk!
Jerry: “….papa….enough..” (He pinched Papa!)
Papa stared at Jerry!
Jerry felt sad, so as papa! Papa decided to wind up.
Papa:”…ok Joy…will meet you tommorrow…ok, good night!”
Papa usually uses good night at the end with close friends just for fun.
But, ‘good night’ during the evening is not fun for Jerry….
Jerry (with all his English knowledge and looking at papa very seriously!): “…papa…what makes you to say ‘good night’, when it is ‘good morning’?….”
Papa looked at Jerry, Jerry continued his serious look. He was waiting for papa’s answer!
Papa: “…what? good morning…? let me check with mama and Tom…”
Papa ran towards mama and tom. Jerry followed.
Papa: “…someone is thinking evening is morning!…”
Jerry: “…someone is thinking now with all the light is good night!!..”
Tom started with science and facts….Mama sensed a long class on earth, sun and solar system!!! Mama quickly intervened…;)
Mama: “….both are right!!!”
“…What????” Papa, Tom and Jerry shouted together! 😉
Mama will have some magic like this always!!
“…For my jerry, when the light is there it is morning…so its ok and correct. For Papa, he says it for fun!…”
Tom could not tolerate the wrong postulates against scientific facts!
Papa:”…hey Tom, now you join me for a short run…let Jerry be with Mama…”
Papa came up with that offer at the right time….! Science class postponed! 😉
Tom joined Papa; Jerry with Mama continued the walk!
Papa saw one very old condemned van on the roadside.
Papa became spiritual (all of sudden!) 😉
Papa: “Tom, do you know what is life?”
Tom got shocked! What happened to Papa!
Tom: “…Papa, are you ok…you want water….?”
Tom:”…ok…ok….tell me what is life?”
Papa:”Life is like this van! Once it was new, people drove it carefully with a lot of love…Later it carried many people, so many places and made people happy. Later, it started losing breath to carry people ….and slowly, it became old and useless! Finally….none wants to take care and dumped here. Now it’s engine is lost, no tyres, all the wiring is stolen, no seats, and only the rusted shell remains!
We are also like that…when we came, we showered happiness around. People cared us with a lot of love and affection. Later we grow and take responsibilities to care others and also enjoy happiness from newcomers. We make things for others, in that run…we forget the reality of old age! Finally, we also become a burden for others….then….then…”
Papa did not want to push that much….He simply stopped and asked Tom…
Papa:”…ok….by the way…did you understand anything…?”
Papa:”Then tell me….what is life?…”
Papa became a teacher! 😉
Tom gave a very calm look to Papa and said…
Tom: “…New, Medium, Old!”
Papa cannot get anything more enlightening! He smiled, Tom also smiled!
Yards behind…Mama and Jerry were still playing, laughing and enjoying the red sun!
