A Surprise Visit To Home

He felt very refreshed when he saw his village from the back seat of the moving jeep. Nothing has changed. Same streets, same shops, same temple, same masjid and the same orthodox people. But those were the reasons for him to fall in love with his village again and again. Though he enjoyed his city life, he missed his village deep inside. Many random memories waved through his mind as the cool breeze of air mildly hit his face.

Without making any noise, he opened the gate of his house, after all it was a surprise visit. He wanted to cherish that moment, capture the precious expressions of his family members. After making sure that there was no one in the garden, he moved towards the door bell. He rang the bell twice. Nobody responded. To his surprise, the door was slightly open. He felt little puzzled to see no one around and the door left open. He entered the living room and saw something really amazing.

The living room which earlier had 4 wooden chairs, an old television with never ending complaints and his mother’s handmade flowers hanging on the wall, is now seen with a beautiful sofa set, a home theatre and a lovely family picture framed on the wall. The whole interior is painted with mild blue colour which added to brightness of the house. Mesmerized at the view, he moved inside. Bedroom, which had only mattresses earlier now has a beautifully designed wooden bed. He could not believe his eyes. He wondered why no body told him about this change!!. And from where all these money came???

He gave a loud call to his mother. "Maa.." There was no reply. Expecting her in the kitchen, he moved forward. Now the settings in kitchen was yet more fantastic. It was equipped with every single thing that his mother used to wish for.

He was confused over this drastic change. "Did I enter into a wrong house?" He doubted.

He came home without a phone call just to surprise them. But as of now he was the surprised soul. He badly wanted to see his parents and his younger sister.

He took out his phone and dialed his mother to know where they are. "Afterall what's happening over here?"

Huh ? ?

It rang inside the house. He looked around to find the phone. But he could not figure it out. It rang louder. It rang very close to his ear. Even more louder……

Suddenly some one shook him from behind…

"Hey, this is the last stop. Get down”.

He woke up from his dream. It was his own phone ringing from inside the pocket. And interestingly, it was his mother calling.

He did not reply the call.

He got down from the jeep and realised, he had missed his place which was two stops behind.

He collected the luggage and started walking towards his home.

…. Thinking “Will my dream ever come true?"
