A realisation on the way!!

Filed under: Relationships — Celia Rexselin @ 12:33 am

Saturdays are always troublesome as I don’t have the pleasure of MRTS trains and have to rely on buses or Sub urban trains.. This saturday too, I hurried to work and went to the ever crowded Guindy station.

The train was as usual crowded and I struggled to get to the other side footboard. By the time I made myself comfortable, the train had reached TNagar. A sudden rush of adrenaline went into my brains as I saw the huge crowd getting into the train.

A group of women got into our already crowded compartment and contributed to the sigh I heard from all directions.. Then I saw that young woman.

She would have been at the max 19. She was beautiful, cuddly and I could tell from seeing here that she is a newly married woman and carrying. She seemed to have morning sickness and was standing with her hand resting on an elderly lady (that was her mother which I found out later).

After two stations, we heard a sudden yell. One lady had started yelling at the young girl. The woman had puked all over the lady’s sari and was almost going to faint. We people had no other option than to watch the whole thing. The mother came to rescue and was saying sorry but the other lady didn’t seem to listen or stop yelling.

Just then, someone offered water to the mother. She took some of it and poured it on the lady’s sari and washed it with her hands… People who had turned their heads in disgust started seeing with astonishment at what the mother is doing. It was cleanly done and soon one lady gave place to the young girl who by that time, was almost unconscious. The mother held her close to her bosom and sat on the place..

I could see that the girl getting comfortable and she started sleeping. As I was watching the scene I thought…..

Its great to be with one’s mother….. and Its divine to be a mother…

  5. @nanyaar:
    Yup!! Pity that some don’t think of theirs in their old age.

    Thanks 🙂

    I have come closer to one more .. in bible. No one has greater love than this–a man laying down his life for his friends.

    Don’t get to see this very often…

    🙂 You won’t believe.. Once I got back home, I went and hugged my mother.
