|Me with my Mumma|
with emotions. I want to let you know, how u have shaped my life, but I am not
getting any words to express my feelings. Yes, Mumma, I know, only off late I have
started expressing to you that how important you are to me, but I keep
wondering, haven’t I taken you for granted for most of the earlier years. I never
sat and expressed to you, how you made me what I am today. All those early
years of my life, I never told you, what you meant to me. I know, if I start
writing all those instances where you instilled in me the values of my life,
this letter would be a never-ending one.
Standard. You probably would have forgotten this as one of my mischievous
activity, but I have never forgotten the same. Rather this incident drives one
of my values of my life today.
study. So, not knowing an answer to a question in examination never happened in
childhood. It was 3rd Standard annual examination. During all the test
papers, I felt too lazy to write the complete answers and just left all the
answers incomplete. Since I knew all the answers, I narrated the answers to one
of my friend Shobha sitting next to me.
option other than pay the price for my laziness. I had scored hardly 35, 40, 45
on an average out of 100 in all the papers and Shobha stood at 3rd
rank with 80, 85, 90 etc. I knew Mumma that you would scold me for the poor
results of mine.
corrected all the low marks and rewrote there 90, 95, 98 etc. and after doing
the total, and wrote ‘First Rank’ there.
understood that I have lied to you. You asked me to accompany you to meet my
class teacher, but I made excuses for not being able to come.
actual marks. You know Mumma, when you went, what I did ? For the first time in
my life, I did Pooja on my own and prayed to God that my class-teacher should
validate my corrected marks. But, obviously, the truth had to come out.
But you also said one thing: “You should not have lied, however bad marks you
got.” I was just 7 year old, probably could not understand much at that point
of time. When I grew up, I understood your message Mumma, you wanted to convey
to me that It is absolutely alright to fail in life, but it is not good to be
dishonest to one’s own conscience and to the loved ones.
failed so many times in my life, had so many low points in life, but your
lesson has stayed with me Mumma. I believe that success and failures are part
of our lives. I believe in giving my best (unlike my childhood), and even if
the results are not as per my expectations, I remember your lesson Mumma that I
need to handle myself in failures as well. You taught me Mumma that I can never
afford to be dishonest towards my own conscience. You also taught me that by
accepting the failures gracefully and being ready to learn the lessons out of
it would ultimately fetch me success.
and taught me. But there are so many incidences in life, where I have picked up
so many things from you.
never told you, let me tell you today: You are the angel of my life. I want to
be born to you in every forthcoming lives. I am very selfish Mumma, I want you to
be there always for me.
