The Real Love
You might have read this but I thought, it would be nice to refresh our memories :

The Real Love

My Wife Navaz Called

How Long Will You Be With That Newspaper?

Will U Come Here And Make UR Darling Daughter Eat Her Food?

Husband Tossed The Paper Away And Rushed To The Scene

My Only Daughter Ava, Looked Frightened

Tears Were Welling Up In Her Eyes

In Front Of Her Was A Bowl Filled To its Brim With Curd Rice

Ava is A Nice Child, Very Intelligent For Her Age

I Cleared My Throat And Picked Up The Bowl

Ava, Darling, Why Dont U Take A Few Mouthful Of This Curd Rice?

Just For Dads Sake, Dear

Ava Softened A Bit And 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, U should... Ava Hesitated

Dad, if I Eat This Entire Curd Rice, Will U Give Me Whatever I Ask For?

Promise. I Covered The Pink Soft Hand Extended By My Daughter With Mine, And Clinched The Deal

Now I Became A Bit Anxious

Ava, Darling, U Shouldnt Insist On Getting A Computer Or Any Such Expensive Items

Dad Does Not Have That kind of Money Right now. Ok?

No, Dad. I Do Not Want Anything Expensive

Slowly And Painfully,She Finished Eating The Whole Quantity

I Was Silently Angry With My Wife And My Mother For Forcing My Child To Eat Something That She Detested

After The Ordeal Was Through, Ava Came To Me With Her Eyes Wide With Expectation

All Our Attention Was On Her

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 Television. Our Culture is Getting Totally Spoiled With These TV Programs!

Ava, Darling, Why Dont U Ask For Something Else?

We Will Be Sad Seeing U With A Clean-Shaven Head

Please, Ava, Why Dont U Try To Understand Our Feelings?

I Tried To Plead With Her

Dad, U Saw How Difficult It Was For Me To Eat That Curd Rice

Ava Was in Tears

And U Promised To Grant Me Whatever I Ask For

Now,U Are Going Back On UR Words

It Was Time For Me To Call The Shots

Our Promise Must Be Kept

Are U Out Of UR Mind? Chorused My Mother And Wife

No. If We Go Back On Our Promises She Will Never Learn To Honour Her Own

Ava, UR wish Will B Fulfilled

With Her Head Clean-Shaven, Ava Had A Round-Face, And Her Eyes Looked Big And Beautiful

On Monday Morning, I Dropped Her At Her School

It Was A Sight To Watch My Hairless Ava Walking Towards Her Classroom

She Turned Around And Waved.

I Waved Back With A Smile

Just Then, A Boy Alighted From A Car, And Shouted

Ava, Please Wait For Me

What Struck Me Was The Hairless Head Of That Boy

May Be, That Is The in-Stuff, I Thought

Sir, UR Daughter Ava is Great indeed!
Without introducing Herself, A Lady Got Out Of The Car

And Continued, That Boy Who is Walking Along With Ur Daughter is My Son Bomi.

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.

Ava Visited Him Last Week, And 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 And Your Wife Are Blessed To Have Such A Noble Soul As Your Daughter

I Stood Transfixed And Then, I Wept

My Little Angel, You Are Teaching Me How Selfless Real Love Is

The Happiest People On This Planet Are Not Those Who Live On Their Own Terms

But Are Those Who Change Their Terms For The Ones Whom They Love !
