The Come Back....

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.


The night was dark and the wind cold . Looking out of the window a million thoughts flashed through her mind .

How things change . And people too . Agreements turn over into disagreements . Slowly giving way for indifferences to crop up .

It all seems beautiful till we come up to an age . To recognize to realize to interpret to understand . Unannounced a time comes when we start acknowledging those fine lines between actions and words .
When closer ones travel farther away and farther ones come close.
The woolen clothes in her body weren’t giving her warmth . 

When a heart turns cold , things can’t warm it up .

Numerous times he repeated the same thing . This is how it is and this is how it’s meant to be .

But she never agreed . Being the fighter , the rebel she couldn’t just sit quite . Accepting things as it was . She knew if it wasn’t working out then it’s our responsibility to make it work . 

Unfortunately who understands that . Putting the blame on luck or fate everyone escapes . Through a safe narrow path . Leaving us alone in hot noon or heavy rain .

And that’s when we get it . That’s the moment which speaks to us . Keeps us awake till late in the night .

When everyone goes to sleep a dreamer wakes up .

Same happened with her . Her aspirations didn’t let her keep down . It forced her , it coerced her , it compelled her to take that one step towards life . Her dream life 

She knew he must be angry . How mad he must be at her . Maybe he can’t even withstand her for a single minute . But she will try . At least once . To pacify him . To let him go off all those piled up qualms .

The sun had already risen radiating sunlight around .  She opened her eyes finding herself in a new day .

And the train was nearing it’s  destination  . One of his favorite songs played in from somewhere among the passengers , may be from someone’s mobile phone . “ Tumko dekha toh , yeh khayal aya “ aah …she started missing him like anything now . The rest thirty minutes seemed more than the past years of separation .

How desperate she was . To hug him , to feel his warmth . To tell him that she cared for him much more than anybody else .

Reaching near the door steps she quietly kept her luggage down . Taking small silent careful steps she ventured inside .
Finding him seated on the rocking chair , she was assured nothing has changed . With closed eyes he was listening to old melodious Hindi film songs .

Lightly she put down the CDs she had brought for him on the table . Taking extra care not to disturb him she went behind his back . Putting her hands around his neck she said in a very low voice “ I am sorry “ .

His eyes opened in an instance . Taken aback by the sudden utterance he turned around . He couldn’t believe his eyes . Yes , she was standing in front of his eyes right there . Just right there.

Words trickled down speaking through their eyes expressing uncountable emotions evincing unspoken utterance .

After all a daughter is every father’s gem and father her best man .

  9. Medicalroots.Com – Growth Plate Injuries
    The growth plate, also known as the epiphyseal plate or physis, is the area of growing tissue near the end of the long bones in children and adolescents. Each long bone has at least two growth plates: one at each end. The growth plate determines the future length and shape of the mature bone. When growth is complete--sometime during adolescence--the growth plates close and are replaced by solid bone.
    Who Gets Growth Plate Injuries?
    These injuries occur in children and adolescents. The growth plate is the weakest area of the growing skeleton, weaker than the nearby ligaments and tendons that connect bones to other bones and muscles. In a growing child, a serious injury to a joint is more likely to damage a growth plate than the ligaments that stabilize the joint. An injury that would cause a sprain in an adult can be associated with a growth plate injury in a child.
    Injuries to the growth plate are fractures. They comprise 15 percent of all childhood fractures. They occur twice as often in boys as in girls, with the greatest incidence among 14- to 16-year-old boys and 11- to 13-year-old girls. Older girls experience these fractures less often because their bodies mature at an earlier age than boys. As a result, their bones finish growing sooner, and their growth plates are replaced by stronger, solid bone.
    How Are Growth Plate Fractures Diagnosed?
    After learning how the injury occurred and examining the child, the doctor will use x rays to determine the type of fracture and decide on a treatment plan. Because growth plates have not yet hardened into solid bone, they don't show on x rays. Instead, they appear as gaps between the shaft of a long bone, called the metaphysis, and the end of the bone, called the epiphysis. Because injuries to the growth plate may be hard to see on x ray, an x ray of the noninjured side of the body may be taken so the two sides can be compared. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which is another way of looking at bone, provides useful information on the appearance of the growth plate. In some cases, other diagnostic tests, such as computed tomography (CT) or ultrasound, will be used.
