* In life, sometimes I am nothing....


A close knit joint family decided to go for a picnic on the week end to a nearby beautiful Valley a midst a thick jungle.... The members were mostly young with full of energies and children including a small kid.... It was a cloudy day and heavy rains with flood warning was the forecast.... But the young members at the back of tons of enthusiasm never retreated.... They said, “It's nothing.... We will go ahead with our plan and enjoy the trip!” Thus they set off for the trip in their vehicle in the early morning hrs.... The plan was reach the place in an hour's time, spend time in the Valley till evening and return by night... And it was all the fun for a while….

Soon, it started raining cats and dogs and the visibility around became poor in no time.... The members said, “Let's continue.... It is more fun now!”  On the way, the vehicle gave way; a Tyre got punctured and the vehicle squarely came to a halt.... The members said, “It is nothing; all we have to do is change the Tyre!” With the required effort they completed the job in a short time.... And the journey continued.... Further down, a boulder fell down from the surrounding slope and blocked their way….The youngsters with their energies shifted the boulder to a side and moved on.... All the time, heroic activities indeed and nothing seemed to stop them! Thus went on the journey for another half hour….Thick jungle and hilly terrain around soon leading into the picturesque Valley....

Suddenly the small kid started crying….They immediately consoled the child.... The kid was cool for a while but again started the cry....

The members tried their best to cool the child by various means…. All the efforts soon failed, they were back to square again and the child continued the cry!  All the way, the mother was trying her best comforting the child!  Another half hour passed with the child crying intermittently....

Suddenly the mother said, “My child appears restless.... I can see the familiarity of home missing.... The jungle around is threatening.... The little one needs the comfort of home with the associated items and sounds around.... The unfamiliar issues around are making my baby sick! And no medical aid is around....No more staying here and let's get back home at the earliest!”

That's all....There was truly 'No Go' for all the energy around and all headed home in no time!
