Fishing..; More!

Generations2
I went for fishing for the first time! Just wanted to learn to throw the net and ensure, I can go and come back safe from the sea!
(I just want to go in the sea and come back; Thank you God for a safe trip!)
I went for fishing for the second time! Just wanted to catch few fishes and come back safe!
(I just want to catch few fishes, at least my wife and kids will be delighted! Thank you God for a safe trip; Thank you for those few fishes!)
I went for fishing for third time! Want to catch more fishes and come back..!
(Want to give fishes to my relatives & friends and surprise! Thank God!)

Are you just thinking only about one thing?

You wish to focus on one, right?! Continue reading Order to Order!

Reality is Reality!

PaulKalanidhiStoryMathubhumi

Read about Paul Kalanithi again; his story of realization of his life, through the negotiations with his death. Not read his book When Breath Becomes air…But that title says a lot.

I picked  Paul and his book during our usual chat with my wife and showed the above article from a malayalam news daily1.  During our conversation, I was browsing her mobile and stuck at a like mail to  her new blog ‘live like a tourist’. It forced me to have a look at it. To my shock ,  the topic was on the similar soul!

She did not notice that I was reading her mobile. After glancing through her blog, I told her that just now I read a similar topic (as Paul’s story)!.

She became curious….I showed her blog! She smiled..a smile with an unknown feeling!

What should we do?

It is not new! Today also read a news about the mishap of a girl in the brutal hands of <please fill>!

Also just now read a message from a friend saying …”this kind of events are repeating, only the names change. News papers and media celebrate for 3 days; people make noise in the social media and street for few days; slowly story and victims become memory!”

I think, not even ‘memory’! 😦

The causing hands are not cuffed; prolonged trial with all ethical and systematic judgement procedure! (Yes, we believe even if crimals escape, we should *not* punish innocent~)….it goes on!

If we were not there…!

Both boys were searching for talc for carom board.
Mama and papa were in chat at the dining. They were discussing about life!
However, Mama, suddenly provided guidance for boys:
“Go to your room, open the cupboard…middle row, above the drawer.”
Big boy could not find anything there “No Mama, nothing here other than some clothes”
Younger was just looking at the same place with more hopes!
(He saw Mama keeping it some where there grabbing it from him, when he was pouring the talc all over the bed in the morning 😉

What did he say?

Mama and Papa were very busy in talking. Serious topics about life!
Little boys were busy playing at the living room. They scattered only few toys around to make it difficult to walk!
Though mama was busy talking to papa, she was worried about the hard job of cleaning the living room. (It has become multiple times a day!)
She kept telling(or shouting!) “Boys, don’t make the place messy. Please keep the toys back after playing…..sklajsdladlhdfssklhfa”
Silence from boys.

ഏകാന്തത

അയാൾ അല്പനേരം കൂടി ആ പൂവിൽ തന്നെ നോക്കിയിരുന്നു…
*                   *                      *                         *

“പപ്പാ, പപ്പാ ദേണ്ടേ…..” രഘു ഞെട്ടിത്തിരിഞ്ഞു. മകന്‍! പട്ടിക്കുഞ്ഞിനൊപ്പം ഓടിക്കളിക്കുന്ന തന്റെ മകൻ! തലോടലിലെ വാല്‍സല്യം ശരിക്കറിഞ്ഞു വളരുന്ന കുട്ടി!
മീര ചായയുമായി വന്നു; ചൂടുള്ള നല്ല ചായ. ഒക്കത്തിരുന്ന കുഞ്ഞിനെ മടിയിലിരുത്തി അവൾ പുല്‍ത്തകിടിയില്‍ ഇരുന്നു.
ഇന്നലത്തെ പിണക്കം , അതിപ്പോഴും..അയാൾ അവളുടെ മുഖത്തേക്ക് ഒന്നു നോക്കി; അവളും അയാളെത്തന്നെ നോക്കിയിരിക്കുകയായിരുന്നു. ആ കണ്ണുകള്‍ എന്തെല്ലാമോ പറഞ്ഞ്, മെല്ലെ നനയാന്‍ തുടങ്ങുബ്ബോഴേക്കും മോൻ ഓടി തളര്‍ന്ന് വന്നടുത്തു വീണു.

“പപ്പാ, ഈ കൈശറു പങ്കര കടിയനാ…നമച്ചിവനെ കെറ്റിയിടാമേ…”
നിർത്തുകളില്ലാതെ അവൻ പലതും പറഞ്ഞു കൊണ്ടിരുന്നു. രഘു അവനെ തന്നോടടുപ്പിച്ചു.

“മീരേ, നമ്മളെന്തിനാ പിണങ്ങിയത്?”
“എന്താ രഘുവേട്ടാ നമ്മള്‍ പിണങ്ങിയോ, എപ്പൊ?”
അവരുടെ സ്നേഹം പുഞ്ചിരിയായി…

*                   *                      *                         *

കാറിന്റെ ഹോൺ ശബ്ദം കേട്ട് രഘു തിരിഞ്ഞു നോക്കി, പാർക്കിന്റെ അങ്ങേത്തലക്കല്‍ അതാ പ്രകാശ്. രഘു മെല്ലെ എഴുന്നേറ്റ് പ്രകാശിന്റെ അടുത്തേക്ക് നടന്നു.
“ഏകാന്തപഥികൻ കാറിലേക്ക് കയറിയാട്ടെ…” ഡോർ തുറന്ന് ചിരിച്ചുകൊണ്ടു പ്രകാശ് പറഞ്ഞു.
കാർ ആ പാർക്ക് വിട്ടകലുബ്ബോഴും ആ പൂവ് ഏകാന്തതയില്‍ തലയാട്ടിക്കൊണ്ടിരുന്നു.
