    Default My daughter sindhu.....a nice short story.....

    One of the best short stories I have ever read....Hope u would like it as well........ ....

    My daughter SINDU

    My wife called, 'How long will you be with that newspaper? Will you come
    here & make your darling daughter eat her food?’

    I tossed the paper away & rushed to the scene.
    My only daughter, Sindu, looked frightened; tears were welling up in her
    eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with curd rice.
    Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age.

    I cleared my throat & picked up the bowl. 'Sindu darling, why don't you
    take a few mouthful of this curd rice? Just for Dad's sake dear.
    Sindu softened a bit & wiped her tears with the back of her hands. 'Ok,
    Dad.. I will eat - not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this.
    But, you should...' Sindu hesitated. 'Dad, if I eat this entire curd
    rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?'

    'Promise'. I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with
    mine, & clinched the deal. Now I became a bit anxious.



    'Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!' was her demand.

    'Atrocious!' shouted my wife, 'A girl child having her head shaved off?
    Impossible!' 'Never in our family!' My mother rasped. 'She has been
    watching too much of TV. Our culture is getting totally spoiled with this
    TV programs!'

    'Sindu, darling, why don't you ask for something else? We’ll be sad
    seeing you with a clean-shaven head.' 'Please, Sindu, why don't you try
    to understand our feelings?' I tried to plead with her.

    'Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice'. Sindu
    was in tears. '& you promised to grant me whatever I ask for.
    Now, you are going back on your words. Was it not you who told me the
    story of King Harishchandra, its moral that we should honor our promises
    no matter what?'



    With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face & her eyes looked big
    & beautiful.
    On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch
    my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom. She turned around &
    waved.

    I waved back with a smile. Just then, a boy alighted from a car &
    shouted, 'Sinduja, please wait for me!'

    What struck me was the hairless head of that boy. 'May be, that is the
    in-stuff', I thought.

    'Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!' Without introducing
    herself, a lady got out of the car, & continued, 'that boy who is walking
    along with your daughter is my son Harish. He is suffering from...
    leukemia'.

    She paused to muffle her sobs. 'Harish could not attend the school for
    the whole of the last month. He lost all his hair due to the side effects
    of the chemotherapy. He refused to come back to school fearing the
    unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates. Sinduja visited him
    last week & promised him that she will take care of the teasing issue.

    But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of
    my son!
    Sir, you & your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your
    daughter..'

    I stood transfixed & then, I wept. 'My little Angel, you are teaching me
    how selfless real love is!'


    “The happiest people are not those who live on their own terms…………but are
    those who change their terms for the ones whom they love..



    KOI DEWANA KAHETA HAI KOI PAGAL SAMJTA HAI.....
    MAGAR DHARTI KI BECHANI KO BAS BADAL SAMJTA HAI...
    TU MUZE SE DURR KAISE,MAI TUZ SE DURR KAISA HU...
    YE TERA DIL SAMAJTA HAI YA MERE DIL SAMAJTA HAI..
