Lying on the hospital bed Manish was counting his each and every breath, actually his last breaths. His lungs were badly damaged due to Covid.
His family was really worried about his deteriorating health. After suffering with Covid for more than a month the day has come when he will be discharged. With doctor's day and night dedication and support, Manish got a new life. Before leaving he held doctor's both the hands in gratitude and that very moment he felt like it was better to be died than seeing the SCAR on doctor's left elbow.
Manish was very much familiar with that SCAR because that reminds him about his reckless mistake from his youth, when he along with his friends raped an orphan girl, who was working in a guest house of Nainital. His eyes got blurred and the Dr said- Forget the past and live the new life.
On a foggy winter morning, while my shivering hands were holding the coffee cup and I was gazing at the first morning of Dehdarun. I saw u in red shawl in a small store, u were busy in bargaining with the shop keeper and in between moving away your small unamanagable hairs from your face.
Even after all these years, I still reminisced that morning every now and then, even when my office desk is pilled up with urgent files or while Im driving back home, I keep humming the song from the radio of that store and remember our journey. Trip to Dehradun was my best holiday ever because I met you wife.
Happy 25th Anniversary. Let's relive the holiday again...
How about find a inner peace in the crowd of life... How about leave everything and take a fresh start... How about recollect all the memories of past life... How about face all those backstubbers once again, this time not with broken heart but with all the courage... How about rejoicing all the happy moments of past when in pain... How about we can do all those impossible things once in our lifetime... Just think how about it would be???
