Sunder the only son in the family decided to sail against tides to make his fortune from his early age. He was encouraged and supported by the family. He left his hometown and went far place for higher studies and there after for job opportunities and was swift enough to grab the opportunities that came in his way. His usual answer to his family members was “I’m busy, will talk to you later” in all those busy years making himself. He was not taken to any family gatherings in the name of studies and giving space and later used it to his advantage and use to skip festivals and other functions.
He has been a loner by chance as well as by choice and one fine day he realized he missed something from inside. He made an attempts to get in touch with his family members. However, their family members too got busy in their own lives and he received what he gave them few years back. WE ARE BUSY, WE WILL CALL LATER.
It may be unintentional on either part but an invisible muddle crept into the cordial relationship among family members. Within few months, Sunder has noticed it and started to see the gap creating by the muddle.
Once day he decided to fix it and he went to home town by taking break from his work. The irony was, he can’t go to his own house because the house has been shifted and he was not sure of the route. His elderly father finally came to pick him.
Later in the day, the leather sofa is not allowing to sit the never seen guest at home whereas the shining Samsung refrigerator is suspicious about him. The dining table became slippery for the food plate while AC at home jetting hot air straight on his face.
Sunder waited for his sisters to come back from office, but the super busy sisters doesn’t have time for their boring brother. Mother kept some food on table and got busy in her chores whereas the father glued himself to the screen broadcasting debate on some trivial issues.
Sunder has been a loner. But for the first time he felt lonely amidst his own family members.
Are we living the life of Sunder? If given the chance, what best sunder could have been done?
