maa...... the baby cries for milk
the baby is my grandson. son of my son,
my daughterinlaw says to my son please do something,
get me some milk,the new born baby is crying in hunger,
ok dear, calm the baby for just one hour till 5am,only we could buy milk.
my son said dad, could you go and wait near milk parlour and get the milk when it opens.
without saying a word i took a small bag and moved out. as i kept walking i began to think of my dad and tears rolled
over my eyes, thinking of my teen age in 1970 s.
my dad used to call me raj, he said raj wake up and go and get milk, there will be a long que,
dad i am feeling sleepy,it is sunday let me sleep till seven, no raj you can sleep after buying the milk, if it is in village we
can get fresh milk in early morning and at evening, but in city we have to depend on the bottle milk the state is providing,
even we could get by other sources which only enables in central of the city.
oh dad with your short lecture my sleep has gone away,wait i will wash my face and go and get the bottle milk,but you or
mom should not scold me for eating the butter in bottle lid.
you naughthy run its getting late,
my mom says,why you always scold our son, he will understand when his age comes,
yes now- in my fifties i think about my parents and their love for me,i can do nothing, while only tears rolls from my eyes.
now in 2015 s we can get variety of milk brands in polythene packs, but i always prefer the best quality.
the milk parlour opens and i got the milk for my grandson.
there is a saying in tamil, the crying baby will only get milk and now also i am crying not for milk for myloving parents.
