This is a story about me. This is
a story of my life. It is a story around moments that fill me with optimism and
hope for the future. The beginning of the story dates back to over 23 years ago
when it all started and it continues for me ever since.
As I was growing up into
adulthood, I had always fashioned myself as a person who had dreamt of living life
to its fullest, a dream to live life on my terms, a life without boundaries, a
life without limits. As would any other young adult of my age think at that
time, I was quite sure of the fact that my dream can be fulfilled only alone
and not walking this life with someone else.
And so when I decided to get
hitched for the rest of my life, it was not as pleasant a thought for me as
anyone would imagine. But then, logic, love and common sense prevailed and the
wonderful thought of tying the knot and getting in to share a part of my life
with my lady love overshadowed every other thought at that time.
But life took its toll as the daily
grind for bread and butter snatched away the maximum time of my life and when
one such dull morning, as I was getting ready to go to work, my wife announced
the inevitable, I honestly had difficulty in getting that smile on my face to
please her. It was not as if I never wanted it, but when it did come, I had
assumed that another member to our household and it would be the end of my
Views change so fast and so does
our perspective. I remember the day, I was prancing away in front of the
operation theater when the nurse brought to me a tiny bundle of joy wrapped
around fully and put it in my open arms
I can’t imagine how the world changed for me the day I got my baby, my
beautiful princess, my first daughter. Her eyes were closed but I felt I could
look into her eyes and it was a moment which filled me with complete optimism.
I was a changed man altogether,
and then came more good news for me. God was far too benevolent for me, I
presume for He gave me two more beautiful angels very soon.
My home suddenly became heaven
for me. My three princesses, one after the other, as they grew up in my arms,
holding on their tiny fingers to mine, clinging on to my chest as I put them to
sleep, walking with me on the streets, demanding little insignificant things
that meant the world to them, learning from me and making me learn, I just
could not imagine life any better than this as time just flew before the two of
them grew up to be adults rubbing shoulders with Dad while the third one about
to venture into teen hood.
So, this story of optimism for
me, which started 23 years back, continues till date. My daughters, my life,
for whom I am their best friend, their idol, with whom they share everything,
bring in so much optimism for me that my whole life circles around them today.
As my angels have decided to
pursue their respective careers, I look into their eyes and am so content and
happy that it makes me feel so optimistic about their future, their life, which
is what my future is, my life is.
