“Ma…you will be fine..trust me …”he held his mother’s frail hand and walked her to a cliff…
“Trust…..I do trust you my son-whole heartedly …but at this age all sorts of negative thoughts sabotage my joy…I want to trust but not blindly…have heard stories of pain n sorrow,specially people of my age…n remember my son…trust is like an eraser ..it gets smaller with each mistake…”she had yet to master the art of being diplomatic….she always called a spade a spade….even at the cost of hurting others…but here she actually was riven between trusting and not trusting……

He was slowly getting angry n restless….he had a plan…n he had to execute it today at any cost…..after all it was his wife’s desire……

“Now stop…this is the spot…..”……and he pushed her ……..she screamed …..he gave a different meaning to the word “visarjan “today on Ganesha Chaturthi

“I release you from all your fears….let’s do visarjana of your unfounded fears….go enjoy your life……..” and he gave another push to the swing…….she screamed again but it was the scream of ecstasy……….she was slowly getting over her fears……n enjoying the swing..,

He smiled as he recollected what his wife told him last night before sleeping….
“Mom looks so happy when she takes kids to the park….she tries to sit on the swings but it seems she is scared….she expressed a desire to enjoy these rides….I have tried enough..but I fail…only you can fulfil this dream of hers….let’s try to give her all the happiness that is in our capacity….”

and with one push he actually fulfilled the desire of two most beautiful women of his life……
