Another Charm in a Swarm: ShortStory #StorytellersBloghop

Sneha peeped outside the window fitted with rusted rods running horizontally across its width. She saw a little girl holding her mother's hand, heading very fast towards the other end. "She seems new to this place," thought Sneha.

"Sneha, it's your turn now. Take this bag, and don't return it until it's full. Be careful with the station master." shouted a shrill voice. Once again, it's a new search, a search for little things from a hullabaloo of things lying hither and thither. 

Sneha, a little one of 9 years old, was left on the railway platform 2 years ago. Her caretaker always forced her to extend her limits. She has targets to meet, and the food she got depended on her search. Luck is not easy, though; extreme searches were her fate. She heard the cries of the baby beside a railway station drinking water tap. Nobody knew who left her there and where she came from. But Sneha recognized her as she saw her running behind her mother an hour ago. She thought, "Another little one abandoned by her family. I hope her luck takes her in good hands."

Book Review: Mom Says You Need to be Strong by Aditi Gupta

 A mother is the backbone of a child who teaches kids the valuable lessons of life. The role of a mother in raising the child is very crucial as the learnings she imparts to the child are ingrained deep in the child's mind.

Today, we bring you from our bookshelf "Mom Says You Need to Be Strong," which speaks about the lessons from a mother to her children irrespective of age. A teenager finds solace in a mom; a toddler needs the cuddle from the mom to feel safe, and youngsters search for answers for their indecisive minds in their mom. So, mom is there for all, irrespective of what age you grow.
