Suman was looking at her daughter when she realized her left hand stopped throbbing, she kept on moving her fingers to re-assure if its for true – her pain is gone at last.

Beaming pan stained teeth, she brushed her fingers to Komal’s cheeks and gave her a motherly kiss. Komal immediately braced her in tight hug – “Maa, teri beti aaj doctor ban gayi!”*

Suman could not control her tears, happily called all her sisters – “Dekho meri bitiya daactor ban gayi”**

She took stethoscope & degree from Komal’s hands and kept in her diety’s feet, “I was waiting for this day since ages, today you proved them wrong – you are not like me & will never be

Mother, you once told me if we really want something in life; whole universe conspires to make it happen! Your determination made me accomplish our dream, I will always be daughter of Suman didi of Kamathipura.

Such a beautiful story Dipika. Unfortunately few will want to be doctors if the current violence and criminal charges on doctors continue.

    gleefulblogger · August 30, 2017 at 9:02 am

    Thank You so much Amrita, it’s beautiful stream of choice. Respect to those who are true to their art of saving lives.
    Sad on the part of administration that such assaults take place.

This is a lovely story of grit and determination but I couldn’t see the connection with the photo prompt.

    gleefulblogger · September 4, 2017 at 6:26 am

    Thank you for stopping by & reading, for me the prompt featured as an old lady who could not relent her desire to get educated & live a better life from what she is today. But with her daughter’s upbringing she could teach her to see beyond the surroundings and grow. That’s why the mother is life’s best teacher. Thank You

upasna · September 4, 2017 at 6:33 am

A story that celebrates Motherhood and determination. #MyFriendAlexa #BioscopeReads

Ashwini Dodani · September 4, 2017 at 8:42 am

Beautiful. Passion, Achievements and support keeps us going. Also, a Mother’s Blessings are undefinable. Definitely a short and good read 🙂

Varsh · September 4, 2017 at 8:51 am

Beautiful story, darling. 👌 The universe conspires for the ones who really want something to happen and try for it.

Novemberschild · September 4, 2017 at 12:00 pm

Life is the best teacher, just as it is. It is the toughest teacher. It won’t tolerate slothfulness for long. It’s always throwing some difficult problem your way and then seeing what you will do with it. Life awakens the joy in creative expression and knowledge. The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well. No matter what happens, life goes on and we have to go along with it to survive, No matter how many times you fail, you have to pick yourself up and Move on.

Shalu Sharma Rathod · September 4, 2017 at 12:34 pm

It is sad that people get labelled for the background from which they come from. Stories like these – fiction as well as the million of real ones are so inspiring for everyone.

    gleefulblogger · September 4, 2017 at 4:53 pm

    Thank You so much

Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan · September 4, 2017 at 1:56 pm

An amazing theme… loved this story.

Aseem Rastogi · September 4, 2017 at 3:28 pm

Quite an inspirational story. Just goes to show that if one has the will power to achieve something, then nothing is impossible.

Ramya drozario · September 4, 2017 at 4:36 pm

Lovely post. This makes me want to try something similar… A flash fiction post of sorts. Good luck with this month. 🙂

    Thank You so much for reading, yes please do and when you start call upon me too for participation.

arv · September 4, 2017 at 5:51 pm

Your post reminded me of a book “the secret” which also has the same concept- if you really want it, the world will conspire to make it happen. lovely write up!

priyanka vermani · September 4, 2017 at 7:35 pm

Lovely post Dipika.. I too believed in the concept of “if you truly want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.
