It’s a Girl!

I still remember seeing him pray to Goddess Durga.

I was still in the womb then,

But I still remember him praying;

“may he be born with intelligence and health” he prayed.

I could hear the laughter of Goddess Durga then, he couldn’t.

My mother was taken care of very well,

I felt happy and lucky.

The small village in a corner of India, seemed like heaven then.

The doctor who tried seeing me through machines,

even she was a Goddess I guess.

“Please see that he is born with health”

he prayed to her.

She laughed out and also cried within herself.

She was really kind, I want to be like her one day.

I will be good, kind and a caring child.

I am sure my dad will be proud of me.

I started growing, so did my dad’s prayers.

‘All for my health’ I thought.

Little did I know he was going to be sad

and that he was going to leave me here

after the doctor says

“It’s a girl!”

Millions of girls born every year don’t even reach the school. Many are married off at an early age and the high aspirations of the girls are even bothered about. It is time to realise that girls are as good as boys. Let’s teach not just ourselves, but also the people working under us and the uneducated. Let them realise that the family and the nation will develop only when we strictly believe in “Beti Bachoa, Beti padao

This article by Book A Flower is dedicated to all the flowers of the nation, the daugthers; Written on the occassionn of National Girl Child Day.

A New Year : A New Ray of Hope

Not before long that we realised the year has started, it has already come to an end. New Year is right at the doorsteps now. Tonight, the whole world is going to celebrate the new year with pomp, fun and gifts. There is going to be a party in every nook and corner of the world. But in fact, what are we celebrating? The change of calender? The change of date? or ageing? None of these right! New year isn’t anything about the new ‘year’ in fact. It’s all about the ‘new’. Confused? Let us explain.

Failures, hatred, fights, disappointments, deaths we all have atleast a few of these during the past one year. Life is never perfect, and that my friend is the whole beauty of life. There are also many things that happened around the world that we hated. Be it the demonetisation or be it Trump’s historic win,  not everyone likes everything. The year has burdened us with too many things that probably left our hearts half-happy. And that is where the ‘new’ness comes to picture. New year is all about the new hopes to start afresh, new determinations to win, new dreams to live and new fortunes to trust upon. Come-what-may happens, life goes on; And every new year offers us a chance to live better and happier. So leave behind all the bad things that the past one year has shown and get ready to enter the new year with the widest possible smiles.

Happy New Year folks.
