The dream…

When he married her she was very young and he had a decent job. Both were not even graduates. Within 9 years of marriage they had 3 daughters. Birth of daughters, and when it’s three of them, is often a topic of discussion, sometimes pity & sometime ridicule too. But they accepted their gifts from God with gratefulness & listened to their hearts. Never did any of them ever regret that they were girls & carried out their responsibilities to the best of their abilities. And both of them had one common dream for the three of them – to educate them well & also to bring them up to be good human-beings.

In spite of all odds, trials & tribulations & many sacrifices, they managed to educate the three of them. The older two are post graduates & have jobs as per their qualifications while the younger one is ready to join them soon. He was happy that he could educate them more than what he could in life. He and his wife now feel happy & contented to see one part of their dream come true. The remaining part of their dream is in-process!

He is my Deuta (my father) and she is my Maa.

And my dream is to fulfill their dreams & always keep them smiling & happy. 🙂

  1. This was beautiful. We are so lucky to have parents whi have strived to give us the best in life. Not everyone is that fortunate esp considering the unfortunate truth that despite the growth and advancement having a girl child in certain societies is still talked about! We are two sisters and my mom were three sisters 🙂 🙂 and we all our living the dreams our parents saw for us!

  2. Kudos to your parents for having such clear thinking. May their dreams-in-progress also come true soon.

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
