After schooling, comes the most awaited and essential part of a student’s life, i.e., college life. Remember how we entered school for the first time? Crying and yelling not to go inside but were dragged away from our parents for a few hours. It turned to be a jail for us back then but slowly the friends we made there and the teachers made us feel like home and then home seemed boring. The last day of school and yet again, we were in tears; tears of departure from each other. Yes, even I cried but then I later realised that all the tears which did flow were real but from whom I cried, they weren’t real. The friends I made were double faced (few were exceptions as still date we share an amazing bond). I cursed myself for making such friends but then I thought, “abhi toh college baki hai, for sure I’ll find some good friends and make amazing memories.”
Then the day came, I stepped into my college for the first time and things turned out pretty well. I made some good friends and life was smooth going, enjoyed every bit of college life and then slowly things started changing. Groups started forming.  I started feeling left out because I was left out. The ones I considered being my close and good friends, started walking off and keeping secrets from me. Well, then it broke me down into little pieces, away from family and then now being treated in such a way that made me feel like I’m unwanted.

It was then I decided to keep myself away from them, detach away and let them be happy. I can find my happiness in other things around. I do have some very special friends and they’ll never leave my side and I’m happy for that. Who would want to be surrounded by fake and double faced so-called-friends? Of course not me anymore; that’s not my cup of tea anymore. I’d rather prefer a single shot of vodka over that cup of tea and be happy with my little and compact group of friends. I do have some amazing friends and super amazing seniors at college and even I can list them but I won’t. I would keep it to myself. 
We learn a lot as we grow up and these were small yet very meaningful lessons for me. At least the ones who consider me close to them don’t approach me only in their needs but stand by my side when I’m in need of some help.

From my first cry to my first word, from my first step to my first fall, from those dirty diaper changes to choosing my regular dresses; you’ve done them all. Remember how I always used to hide behind dad when you scolded me and tell all those secrets to granny which I was warned not to tell and then laugh like a new born baby. From that red anger filled face to that lovely smiling face, from those ears pulling to that warm hugs; I’ve seen them all. A mother is the one to hold your hand when you walk and lift you up when you fall, To see you get into your teenage and let you enjoy your life but still be by your side as a support when you feel that everyone has left you alone, and finally see you become an adult and take up all the responsibilities but still being by your side as a friend with whom you can share your talks and everything. Being a single mother is a difficult task but you never failed in being one and never did ever let us feel the absence of dad. It’s difficult for you…

तू है मेरी प्यारी माँ।

Every mother is a special person, a super woman. She is a person without whom a family remains incomplete. She is the one to teach us the good values and scold us for things so that we can improve ourselves. She is the one to make us understand when we are wrong and correct us. She’ll be the guiding light when we are stuck in the dark hour of our life. When everyone leaves your side, a mother will always be by your side. There would be time when she’ll be angry and she’ll shout but you know, there love hidden in that scolding of hers.  Mummy, you were always there with me when I needed someone. Even when everyone left me all alone, you stood by me and helped me recover. The day I was born, you were the happiest person. With tears in your eyes and a big smile on your face, you held me in your hands. Seeing the new born me, you cried and smiled. That was a memorable day for you and for me as well. Having a mother like you is the best gift anyone can have and you are the most precious gif…
