WHEN DO I COME OUT OF THIS COCOON?


  • “My knee has a specific problem. It's not allowing me to walk fast as well as go up and down the stairs. Especially coming down is a big pain. Others have already started noticing this and are pointing me out at odd places. I feel bad for getting into this problem in this age itself. It appears, God is not kind to me!”  
  • “Me too worried now a days because of a similar nuisance with me. Of late, my shoulder and right hand are creating a problem and I'm not able to lift loads like earlier. I'm forced to handle lighter loads in a different fashion. None of my colleagues have this type of problem. It appears, God is not kind to me!” 
  • “You may not know.. The other day, I had to travel by City Bus. I somehow boarded one at——— but getting off at our Stop in a short time looked almost impossible. I got down slowly at the next Terminus Stop and then walked back home. Truly pathetic situation.. I'm put down once for all. It appears, God is not kind to me!” 
  • “I too faced a similar situation last Sunday. That day, I purchased a few items from our Market and as I started walking towards the Bus Stop carrying the same, suddenly the right shoulder gave way and I could no more carry the stuff on that side. It was hectic to carry that load in the other hand, travel in the bus all along singly and reach home. Very difficult to get on like this. It appears, God is not kind to me!” 
  • “We got to do something here. But you see, I already sought the Medical Advice and I was told to go slow in life along with a routine treatment. Means in coming years, I've got to live with the problem and I can never do many activities. Presently everything is in a mess. And no one understand's my difficulty. It appears, God is not kind to me!” 
  • “I agree that we can't do much here. It seems I'm the only person among my colleagues having this peculiar problem. Every one else is happily going around with their full freedom of movement. Truly a bad situation.. It appears, God is not kind to me!” 
Feeling dull and helpless, the two friends of early fifties finished their works and as they were returning home silently with the dullness continuing in their minds, they could see a smart well dressed man in wheel chair overtaking them being helped by an elderly well-wisher cum care taker.
  • The man appeared to be in his late twenties with a neatly shaven face, well groomed hair and a pleasant smile was seen happily chit-chatting with the well-wisher smiling in between to which the elderly too was responding with all warmth at the back of a partially paralyzed right hand and right leg. The two moved on thus gracefully towards their destination and soon were totally out of sight!
