The Moment of my Lifetime

I had a small conversation on phone with my friend yesterday when he suddenly asked me “What did you have for lunch?” I was not able to recollect what I had for lunch just 30 minutes ago. I thought I was so doomed. Later I recollected and told him what I ate. However, the lunch problem is solved. Then, I later started thinking why my brain did not respond to me properly while I was trying so hard to re-visit my memory to know what I had for lunch. The most surprising factor is that I had lunch just 30 minutes before having a call with him. I became a little more curious and I started to think about memories.

Memories are cool, isn’t it? I love memories. Our memories provide us happiness, sadness, anger and almost all the emotions of the world. Memories are very important. It’s been 2 years since my father had an acute stroke in his brain which made him lose all his memories. It’s been almost 3 to 4 months for him to recollect all his memories and identify me. Every day before leaving to work, I still remember me asking my name to him. However, I am happy now and forever grateful to God that he had recovered from the illness and he is leading a normal life like everyone now. One incident happened in the hospital which I wanted to share with all of you at this moment. It was the 5th day since my father got bed ridden in the hospital. I was allowed to visit my father only twice a day as he was getting medicated in the Critical Care Unit. The nurse came and called me in. On reaching the room, I saw my father with all the life supporting paraphernalia. It was difficult for him to recognize anyone meeting him other than my mother. Then, the doctor pointed his hand towards me and asked my father to recognize me. My father wasn’t able to recognize me initially. Hiding my tears, I smiled. A storm raged and hit my heart at that time, but somehow I managed to pretend before everyone showing them that I am completely fine. My father’s friends and my mother were standing beside me. I still remember standing still watching that moment. Someone told my name to the doctor. I know that my name is the hardest name on Earth and no one has ever spelled it right the first time. However, fortunately or unfortunately – I don’t know, the doctor did spell my name successfully in the first attempt. On hearing my name, my father started smiling and the sound of his mild laughter reached my ears. I have never seen anyone smile on hearing my name. It was the first time. All the hardships that I have ever faced in my life can never be matched to that one moment. I call it ‘The Moment of my Lifetime’.

Life is all about making memories. Make sure you create more and more happy moments in life. For now, picture the happiest moment of your life in your mind and spread beautiful positive vibes wherever you go. Good Luck !

Just for the fun of Writing

Its June of 2020 already…
I have no plans other than just thinking…
I know I can write on anything…
But what should I write…
Numerous thoughts start clogging my mind…
People always dream big…
So, do I…
Life always have something or the other to teach us…
In the end, all that is left for us are our memories…
Memories trigger emotions, and –
Believe Me…
Emotions are powerful, aren’t they?
The Struggles in Life either teach us to win or lose…
Either you choose to never give up and keep trying till you win,
Or choose to give up on your dreams…
The choice is yours…
Let me tell you why I have written these lines:
“Just for the fun of Writing”

Night Sky

Everywhere I see…
White dots all above me !!!
The stars stay quiet in the silence of the night.
All that I wish to see on Earth now is dark:
Our Sun has gone to rest for the day.
The memories of the day flashed in my mind.
Did I forget to smile ???
I don’t know…
Is the sky – nothing, but an empty space ???
My soul failed to give me an answer…
Who will answer me ???
