In conversation with Lord Ganesha

A door opened with a bang; it was Miya, who came home after school.

“Hey! Miya, What’s wrong with you dear? How was your day today?” her mother asked.

“Nothing mom I am tired, I want to take some rest”, saying this she entered her room.

Miya is a high school student, energetic and an all-rounder. Just about a month ago she was made the head girl of the school. All her teachers always appreciated her for the great efforts she put in studies, as well as the way she performed her duties as the head girl of the school. But today she was upset and her mother understood that she is worried about something.

“Well! Dear I’ll be waiting for you, we will have some snacks after an hour”, Mom thought not to disturb Miya now; later on she may discuss the matter with her.

Miya was gadget savvy and used the technology efficiently for her work to shine best. She switched on her laptop and saw a message and startled to receive it from Ganesha .
SpeakingGanesha -Short Story- MeenalSonal

Miya : “Lord Ganesha! How come you are here?”

Ganesha :“Why, can’t, I have an account? I am also hi-tech now- a- day’s as you all people say a lot on Internet. I also sign up to talk and check every one’s status.”

Miya : “Oh wow! I can’t believe it. But Ganesha, I will not chat with you I am angry up on you”.

Ganesha : “Me ! What’s the matter? What have I done?”

Miya : “You don’t know what happened in school today. You are Lord and omnipresent, isn't it”.

Ganesha  :“Aha! I was there, but you tell me what have I done?”

Miya : “My science project was not selected for the inter-school competition.I was not able to believe it.How come my project was rejected”.

Ganesha : “But ,how am I responsible for that, I am no way connected to your project.”

Miya : “Why my project was not selected even after praying to you a lot. You are God and my friend too, you can do anything you wish to.”

Ganesha : “Yes Miya I am there with you always.”

Miya : “Then why my project was rejected?”

Ganesha : “Look, Miya it’s you who have to put all your efforts on your project, and if selectors did not find it up to the mark then you need to look out for the reason behind it; because it’s the hard work that only pays. I can only help those who really work hard with true spirit. Just sit and analyze that what has gone wrong this time.”

Now Miya understood that after becoming the head girl her way of looking at things changed, she became a bit over confident and started thinking that she can achieve anything in life as till date she did not faced the failures.

Ganesha : “Miya, just remember one thing in life, that our success should not desist us from going still further in life.

 Suddenly the laptop screen went blank due to low battery and Miya heard her mother calling for snacks. Miya was amused whether it was Ganesha who really chatted with her or just an imagination.

“Determination should never be less, even if one reaches on top.”
