Love, Hope & Care…

with 3 comments


Those of you who know me well, know there is a gardener inside me. Today was one of those days, when the gardener in me felt truly, abundantly happy…

What you see as an image of blooming flowers above, was one of the saplings that I had planted early winters this year. I hoped for a lush bloom, a garden full of flowers, covering the otherwise dusty environs of the Millennium City – Gurgaon – that I live in.

Not to be, not so easy.

One fine morning, I woke up to find most of these saplings all crushed and trampled down!  And from the looks of it, this havoc was caused by a stray dog, who must have dug deep into the rows of my plants in his gay mischief….

I was crestfallen…

In one corner, I saw nearly dead a small sapling. I was so dejected that I didn’t give it a second thought. And with a heavy heart, I got ready and drove off to office.

All through my drive, the dying sapling kept coming back in front of my eyes… Around lunch time, I started to feel quite uneasy… and then, I decided to drive back home. Once home, I dug this sapling out, which looked even more worse than morning and planted it in a mud-glass, most carefully, and said a silent prayer…

3 months today from that fateful day, with a hope against hope and a lot many prayers and care later, I saw this sapling blooming into a bunch of flowers! The gardener in me felt the same happiness that I get when I see my son growing every day… The hope, the love, the prayers and the care – they all paid off.

Happy to share with you…

As they said, looks like faith is still known to move mountains…

Love, Hope, Miracles…

Corrina and Michael Schumacher

“She would view breaking faith with the hope of a miracle a betrayal, little better than treachery”

Sometimes, on an otherwise mundane day of our lives, life brings to us stories of true love, of grit, hope and other such miracles of life. Today is one such day, when I came across the sentence quoted above. This was a family friend of the Schumachers, Corrina and Michael. He was echoing sentiments of Corrina, Michael’s wife, who is hoping for miracle. We all know the F1 champ is in coma since Dec 29, after suffering severe brain damage in a freak accident while skiing. Corrina, his wife for 23 years, is spending £10 million on a fully-equipped medical facility at their residence, in the hope that her husband can return home to recuperate, instead of being lodged in an ICU.

In the world full of ‘practical’ people, who prefer rational approach while dealing with such hope-without-hope situations, her belief, her companionship, her unflinching support to a near-lost husband is a rather relieving news. There is hope for hope, it seems!

Schumacher, our beloved champ, is in prayers of his millions of fans. I am adding Corrina’s faith too in my prayers. After all, didn’t someone say, ‘Miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong.’

Let’s add our faiths to hers; it is still known to move mountains…
