.

THE TALE OF AN ORPHAN

 

 

 

O ne day Armaan woke up from sleep . He heard some noise from the outside farm. It belongs to the neighboring farmer karma singh. He used to come to meet Armaan’s uncle sometimes. But his sole purpose of coming to their house is to borrow money. People very well knew that Armaan faces many problems in his uncles house, however he did not show it to anyone.

Armaan used to sit at terrace of  the house watching the stars in cold breeze. He get to know from somewhere that those who die, becomes stars after dying. He just sit at one corner, near the tank of water, and just searching for his parents. He usually sits there to find the stars  in which he could see his parents and  could tell them about how uncle and aunty treats their children and discriminates him. He often woke up from sleep having a dream of his parents coming towards him and hugs him tightly.

AUNTY: Armaan, woke up. How much sleep did you need? Woke up now. Wake up and quickly prepare breakfast for Surya (uncle’s son).

ARMAAN: Ok, aunty.

AUNTY: yes. Do it fast, or else you know what could happen with you.

ARMAAN:  yes…. Aunty I…. knew it.

Usually this word comes from Armaan s mouth. The fear to being bitten forces his to shut his mouth and follow the order. But the fact is how a 10 years old body could kill his thoughts, desires, freedom for a long time.

Surya: hey you, where are my clothes which I have given you to wash yesterday.

ARMAAN:  Oo…..I forget to wash them. I am sorry.

Surya: Sorry ! Did I wear your sorry to school.huh’’!! wait I will tell this to mamma.

Armaan: please… , don’t do that she would beat me.

Surya : so what you are our slave. And slaves are meant to be beaten for their faults.

After this he told his mother about this. Then without knowing the fault his aunts beat her in spite of having another uniform in the almirah. The fault of food burn was given to Armaan also.

 

It was month of December; a sense of winter was seemed to be fell all around in the environment. Armaan was asked to leave the room and made to sleep in the verandah as some guests were coming to uncle’s house and they needed some room. From that day for several weeks of December in the cold. Until, a boy named Akshay have entered his life. Akshay had just shifted to his neighboring house with his family. He found Armaan sleeping in cold and was suffering from high fever.

He got a blanket for him and took him to his room to make him sleep comfortably. But, Armaan knew that in the morning he knew he had to get up early to again be engaged in his daily chores. In the morning he could not got up due to a deep dream that he was watching in the warm room of Akshay . When Armaan got up from sleep he thanked Akshay and befriended him. Armaan told him that how his uncle and his family treat him. Akshay offered him to leave his uncle and start to live with him.

Akshay’s father was very rich businessman, and Akshay was his only son and he couldn’t deny his request. So, akshay took Armaan with him and took him away from the hell. Armaan and Akshay goes to school, than college and in this way time passed. One day, Armaan get faint and fell down while going home from college.

Akshay quickly took him to near AK das hospital. It is very close from their college and look very near and high profiled hospital. Akshay was very sure that his friend might get a good and quick treatment there . so, he admitted him to the hospital.

The Doctor said that Armaan had a hole in his heart and needed a immediate surgery. Armaan don’t have much time and more delay could cost his life. Akshay said the doctor to start the surgery and and he was going to arrange the money. But the doctor told him to first to submit the money or they would not start the surgery. Akshay agreed and went home to take money from his father. But, his father is not there. He took money from the locker and went to the hospital. He submitted the money and went to see his friend. But the doctor said he is no more. They even said that in this world, money is more precious than life. Akshay could not think of anything else.

 He just wanted revenge from the hospital’s association. He went to court and put a case against the hospital A.K Das hospital. The Akshay’s lawyer got the proofs very fast as Akshay is not the only one who had lost someone due to the delay of money submission or can say the greed of money in the doctor. As a result of it , A.K das hospital was Fined a lot of money to all those for whose death the hospitals regiment is responsible and also the chairmen of AK das hospital was jailed for 20 years . As he had been found accused for rejecting the letters of people of complaint and ignoring the illegal practices of doctors. The doctors are like god to people and gods should not be greedy in nature.

In this way, Akshay get justice from his beloved friend Armaan and also gives us two ideas . One, is that “A true friend is always true” and also “all shining things were not gold”.
