Gulping down his sob seemed more difficult with the passage of time.. The eye bags seemed burdened holding the swallow-en eye balls …The agitation of leaving his mother alone, kept pricking his mind.But the thought of a prosperous future that promised a lively living for him and his family healed the wound.Tears rolled down the cheeks as limiting them within his own self now seemed impossible..
Studying abroad in one of the eminent universities of England was not less than a dream come true.Especially for a villager like him where being a matriculate was considered of an achievement par excellence. The time ran as fast as it could
The moment to leave for the ardour journey finally arrived.
The cab stood right across the gate.Gathering his mother around his arms he escorted his mother to the door step.With a graceful kiss on his forehead she boarded his son into the vehicle..
He sat and leaned on the cab’s window.Every word uttered from her lips carried blessings for her son for a safe and sound journey.The car’s ignition marked his leave.She stood on the door step unless the taxi drove him away and became a small speck of horizon.
