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.

  1. Bahut accha motivational likha hai, hume kisi bhi baat se positive hi bahar nikalna hoga tabhi success karengey
    Aapki story se yehi kitne acche se samney aaya ????

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Wow what a positive end to that story. When you snub someone you push him to excell, that happens in reality. Thanks for linking up with #FridayFotoFiction

  5. 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

  6. 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.

    1. Wuhu Natz…. I was waiting for your comment so eagerly. Thank You soooooo much to motivate me write stories. ??

  7. This is such an inspiring short story, Dipika! Some people just restrict themselves to share their knowledge with others and that’s where they fail in life. It’s always wonderful to share your gift with others. Beautifully penned! 🙂

  8. Another fabulous piece of fiction from you. Few lines speak volume wherein many pages couldn’t convey the right message. I loved this short and crisp post of yours.

  9. You’ve woven in the message beautifully in this short lovely story 🙂 Music and going against the odds is a perfect blend to motivate us to reach our goals and realise our dreams.
