#AtoZChallenge – Letter U – The Torn Umbrella


“Grandpa, let’s have a walk in the rain with our umbrellas,” little Mihir eagerly requested.

In a few minutes, they were walking through the streets. Mihir noticed water seeping through a hole in his grandpa’s umbrella.

“Grandpa, your umbrella needs repair. It has started leaking.”

“It has been like this for quite some time, kid. Let it be so. I’ll not allow anyone to touch this,” he smiled and said.

“But why, Grandpa?”

“Because your grandma herself made this for me!”

Mihir smiled in awe. Memories of a beautiful summer shone in the radiant glow of his grandpa’s eyes.

This is my third year of participating in the A-to-Z blogging challenge and like last year, I hope to complete the challenge this year too. This post is written in response to the letter U.




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. Lovely! We hold on to the most random possessions just because of the memories they bring of a loved one. There is nothing more comforting than that, especially when you aren’t lucky to be around that person all the time.
