Memories....across cities




PIND DADAN KHAN
Many decades ago in the bylanes of a small town , the tricycle meant a lot to him and his two elder brothers.They were almost the same age and size,born only a year apart from each other,and hence no one played the big brother but they were more of friends.The colourful tricycle was a gift from their maternal uncle who lived in Rawalpindi -the big city where big people went to work.

SHIMLA
A few decades later,when he was a dad, at the peak of his career,he did try to find time to choose toys for his daughter,but the hilly terrain of his home prevented him from buying her a cycle.Time went on,she grew up...

CHANDIGARH
Several decades later as he buys a sophisticated looking baby-scooter(that's what they are called now) from a swanky mall for his toddler granddaughter,he is reminded of a lot.A home lost decades back ,whose memories are now dull but dear,brothers/friends who grew up and apart and are now dead.He relives the joy of sharing a toy and his seven-decades old heart reminisces fondly....

This is a true story about me,dad and sonee....
