It was a quiet Wednesday afternoon in the RAJDHANI TRAIN. It is on the way back from INDORE – MADHYAPRADESH, INDIA. The train journey started from Bhopal and end at Bangalore in some 26 Hours duration. I got a call from my better half.
Let us listen to what I heard & said:
Better Half: “Do you know what happened today?”
I was curious and anxious as I was away from home for a week’s time.
Better Half: “It was a great sight to watch”
Me: Tell me what.
Better Half: “Our younger son (Studying LKG) got down from the bus with a “GOLDMEDAL” on his tender shoulders”
I could hear: The hidden ecstasy in her voice: The pride of being the mother: The perfection his SON could achieve.
And of course, I was really felt very happy that my better half excited with our SON’s achievement in young age. After that his brother (My elder son) also shared his excitement and happiness.
Then my son himself in his childish voice told me like this: “I got GOLDMEDAL in running race. I have come first and all the classmates came second. That is why I got the GOLDMEDAL. My friend got SILVER and other Friend got other medal. My teacher gave me the MEDAL”
After hearing all these things, I could not wait any more to see the medal.
Moreover, it was a coincidence that I have been awarded in the blog and my son getting “GOLDMEDAL”
The difference is that I got it without hard work. My son got the Medal with the hard work by running those yards with the vision.
