I have been craving to write about something since a long time but never something really holds my mind for a long time. And on 1st January ’19, something happened ; although a very small and casual happening but for me it’s a reminder to something which we miss to hold in our daily lives.
I was travelling back to my city that day and I was about to meet my father at the platform. We were going to board different trains after that. So basically, going in different directions later. We met at the platform itself and had few conversations in short span of time. When the time came to depart our ways, he handed over a packet of biscuits. I saw that he managed to meet me but feeling guilty that he did not brought anything for me. That moment is unforgettable when I felt that I am still a little kid in front of him. We always know that we would remain the same kids to our parents, but instances as such are big reminder for this truth. I told him that I will get my meal and I have sufficient stuff with me. But for him, it was not sufficient. He kept it in my bag saying that you take it with tea, keep it because you usually get hungry after few hours. And then, he left.
Leaving away from our loved and dear ones we sometimes don’t realize their emotions and feelings. They always keep the first image of ours in their eyes and live by that. Our needs will be same in their eyes forever. When it comes to parents, for them however old and efficient we become, our needs and necessities will be same in their eyes as they have seen us while growing into adults. We grow in our heads, but they remain the same in their emotions.
Certain feelings and incidents are very personal, but they are always worth sharing.
