The Son

The old couple were amazed at the sight before their eyes. The dining table was full of their favorite dishes and desserts. They smiled at each other and tucked into the delectable treat. The couple realized that they could not thank Raju enough. Since the young man had come into their home a few weeks back, he had seen to all their needs. Their love for Raju was so much that they started calling him son.

But they were sad that their only son did not bother to call them. Sometimes, there is more to life than blood, they pondered.



I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!

  1. I think there are many things to life that’s more than blood. Happy that they realized it, and accepted it. Sometimes, the efforts of such people go unnoticed and unappreciated because people look for blood, color, religion and so on and so forth.
