Three kids were born with silver spoon in their mouth in a well-to -do family before independence. Their father was the eldest son of that family. He had two younger brothers. Though they were all married, but they were in the joint family as house divided can’t stand. They had a business of agriculture as well as money lender. The family was reputed and well known in that premises. Elder brother would see all financial matters of the joint business and home. All of sudden, he was found dead due to fever. The family was shocked by his death. His kids were very small. So, the responsibility of family would come on their uncles. But they weren’t as wise as their elder brother. There were droughts and floods in that decade alternately. So, their financial strength collapsed and it was out of their control. They would mod gage their lands for overcoming their financial crises. Their elder brother’s family wasn’t aware of this financial matter. When the kids of the family were grown enough, they asked for their shares in the property to stand self-reliance. Their uncles were also puzzled due to mounting burden of loan. So, they decided to give their share in the land by hiding the secrete of loan on their land. When the sons of elder brother started their own business independently. The money lenders would come to them for repayment of interest and loan. The cat was out of bag. The family was shocked. But there was no other solution except either they should return the loan with interest or hand over the mod gage land to them. It was of no use of crying over spilt milk. They could not return the amount; hence money lender took over their land. Since beggars could not be choosers. So, family came on road. They had left very few acres land for survival. Half a loaf is better than none. So, they were happy with it.
God helps those who help themselves. Fortunately, one of the uncles and his wife from the parent family were dead due to his bad habits who already sold his maximum property. He had no baby. Therefore, his nephew got his property by rule. It was an ounce of protection worth pound of cure. Meanwhile, younger son in the family passed the school board examination. The ship in the harbor is safe, but that’s not, what ship is for?. He decided to leave his birth place for the welfare of his family. He wasn’t be good farmer as his elder brother. He handed over his land to his elder brother and moved to town where was doing job in some private bank. He had some financial support from the land from his elder brother. So, he was happy with family. He paid more attention on education of his children. He had four sons and two daughters. All is well that ends well. All his children got good education and some of them were serving in bank and in government services. They moved from their town to districts as well as to big cities.
The youngest son of the family was working in central government office. He would move from one city another city in his service period. He had a elder daughter and son. He settled in orange city just before his retirement. His daughter was a software engineer in some reputed company in Pune. She got married with an engineer in the city. They were happy with their lovely daughter. After few years, his younger son was also an engineer. He had job in Bengaluru. Their parent would stay either with son or daughter frequently, otherwise they would stay in the orange city. The parent was very happy by achievements of kids. They were enjoying their real life after prolog struggle. Their children would also take care of them.
Parent decided to find match bride for their son just like their son -in -law. Good things happen with those who wait. They cracked the mission. Their daughter in-law was also software engineer. She was also from orange city and working at Pune. After marriage, she changed her work place from Pune to Bengaluru.
Appearance can be deceptive. They seemed to be very happy in their life. Their parent was also happy by looking the happiness of members of the family. They just shared their daily activities as if both were happy with their job and workplace. When they would see back their history of family from village to town, town to city and city metropolitan city. They thought that their father had taken the right decision of leaving their ancestor birth place, otherwise they would have to live that miserable life.
The mother of kids was very much happy. She was proud of her son-in-law and daughter -in-law too. She had faith in son and his wife. Her son was also aware of her attachment with him. He was in dual mind of taking some hard decision. Get out, when going is good. One day he dared to tell his mother that he had got job in very big multinational company in United Kingdom. The sand below the legs of the mother passed away by hearing that shocking news. She was deeply shocked by that news. He told his mother that he would serve there only for few years, but his mother wasn’t agreed with the words of his son. He promised her that he would come back after few years. She wanted right from the beginning that his son and daughter would stay near to her. But circumstances took away her kids from her place to far for their future. A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ship is for ?. Therefore, his father saw him eye to eye. Though the mother wanted that her kids should remain at stone’s throw, but her kids were going away from her for making their career. when her son bit the bullet to go abroad with his wife. His mother was extremely unhappy as it was a knee jerk reaction. She behaved very rudely with her son and daughter-in-law before they flew over seven oceans. Any how her son would manage his mother as time passed. He would remain connected daily by video call either before he would go to office or after come back from office. He was an apple of parent’s eyes. His father was also shocked but couldn’t expressed his feelings. Even though he was not agreeing with the decision of his son, but he could not say anything. He was of the opinion that his son shouldn’t carry any burden on his head while serving at new destination. He absolutely kept his mouth shut.
Father whose son was in abroad started to review the history of his family. His father was born with silver spoon in his mouth. But nature lifted the blessing of his father when he was baby. Whole family faced thereafter financial crises due incapable leadership of their uncles. They kept the family in dark to face the worst days of their life. Anyhow, He managed the situation by shifting himself from his birthplace to town. He could only provide the minimum platform to his kids. His kids later found the way to come out of the situation. They slightly could build rigid platform for their kids. When this platform provided to them, they could march to metropolitan cities. When his son found comfortable platform for him. he flew away abroad. What would happen with coming offspring of his family in the future. He would be no more to see it?
