Here is my entry for this week’s #FridayFotoFIction

Burning Itch – The Piano

I was 6 when started accompanying mother to work; she was weak of tuberculosis, I helped her with daily chores.

The Madam was a Piano teacher, where we worked. She had a beautiful house Mother said she was very famous & many kids used to come for piano lessons there.

I loved the sound of Piano! I listened very carefully when she taught chords & notes. Once I even tried creating music reading her notes but she got so annoyed and closed the lid on my hands!

It pains every time I remember that day, but honestly, today if I am here it is all because of her. The more she snubbed my longing towards learning Piano, more I got determined to learn and excel in it. I dedicate my success to her.

We musicians should think beyond the social boundaries and do what we know best – Spread Love.

I played piano when I was five or six. Unfortunately, all I remember is a dark house and the metronome. I must not have musical talent. Cheers for you for taking a bad situation and turning it to the good!

Obsessivemom · September 4, 2017 at 12:12 am

Persistence is the way to success – nicely written. It is so easy to back off when one is snubbed. But only the ones who do not give up make something big out of their lives.

Rajlakshmi · September 4, 2017 at 1:38 am

Beautiful story. Indeed musicians should spread love instead of snubbing the students.

Ruchi Verma · September 4, 2017 at 2:00 am

I look this girl as an inspiration and we all should learn from negativity of others and make it positive

Akshata · September 4, 2017 at 5:24 am

Wow…Very well written…Monday positivity.. πŸ™‚

Mahak @babyandbeyondin · September 4, 2017 at 6:56 am

You know, when I read that the teacher slammed the lid shut on the author’s fingers, I thought this would be a tale of regret and lost dreams because of a tough teacher. I was pleasantly surprised to see the positive spin on it. Love it

    gleefulblogger · September 4, 2017 at 7:07 am

    Thank You so much, glad you liked it.

Roma · September 4, 2017 at 7:42 am

Good one Dipika. Beautifully conceived n woven.

Nice read. A positive thought on Monday!! Thank you for sharing!!

Varsh · September 4, 2017 at 8:46 am

Such a sweet and motivational story, Dipika. Melody doesn’t necessarily come to someone who has trained with the best. It is a quality that develops with pain and hard work.

Samarpita Mukherjee Sharma · September 4, 2017 at 8:56 am

Such a positive story. True, it is our detractors to whom we owe a large part of our successes – we might not have tried to win had we not been stopped from trying certain things!

Deepa · September 4, 2017 at 9:01 am

Beautiful story. I loved how you weaved a positivity in the tale. Love happy endings. πŸ™‚

Motivating story. The determination and confidence were quite amazing. I could feel the pain in your story.

Neha · September 4, 2017 at 9:12 am

Spread love indeed! Music and art cannot be bound by societal boundaries

Vinay Leo R. · September 4, 2017 at 9:21 am

It’s good that that act of despise spurred her toward determination πŸ™‚ Music must bring people together, not tear each other apart.

Ruby Singh · September 4, 2017 at 9:56 am

Do you play Piano ?

Iram · September 4, 2017 at 10:10 am

Mandavi Jaiswal · September 9, 2017 at 8:14 am

That is such a terrible thing to do, slam the lid on a child’s fingers. I hope she knows that you are a successful musician now. Life will teach her the lesson.
