Wandering for the Radio
 
 
He is a village man. Actually he has no respect to his village and there’s culture. He always prefers the city which is seven kilometers from the village. He always uses the private bus service to go to the city. For every thing he used to go to the city even for a small need. His mind always says to him that city is your destiny. Leave here as soon as possible.
His great wish is to bring a new FM hand radio. Because at that time every one in his class room have a new brand FM radio. He gathers enough money for the FM radio from his parents, balance collection of shopping, by selling old news papers from his home and in all types he can. One morning he became ready as planned on yester day. He took his carry bag and went to the bus stand. He saw good bus and he get in. His mind is in a great anxiety for the new FM radio. The bust started and as his dreams also.
After half hour he reached in the city. He went to a shop where he always saw the bundle of the FM radio previous weeks. It was two weeks before he went to the city. He thought what a change occurs in between these days. All the film posters changed, all the advertisements changed and everywhere there is feeling of change and variety.
He again cursed his old village.
It is actually busy in the city due to the Christmas celebrations. Our hero don’t notice about that all. He went to a shop ask for the radio. The shop owner eagerly searches for a radio. He found some old and bad covers of the radio. Shop owner disappointedly return and say sorry to him and said about the busy selling on the Christmas holy days. Our hero’s face just worried and he again went to another store. But there also he can’t found one. Within one hour he covered all the stores of that city area. He disappointed completely and went back to the bus stand. His face is horizontal to the earth that every one can make a doubt. He caught a bus to the village and his mind is full with sad and angry to himself and his mind’s decisions. At last he reached his village. He saw a friend but he doesn’t give face to him. His friend makes a wish and goes away. He just laughs at him and walk. He is hungry with the angry. So he decided to use the money which he collected for the radio. He saw an old café with a small store. He went inside and order for a tea and some snacks. The bearer gave it to him. He saw the store is an old electronic shop. He saw one cover with a picture of a radio. His mind started to thinking and dreaming. After the food he gave money for the owner. He asked about the old cover. The shop owner became happy and said it is an old village model radio and price is also cheap. If you like I will give it with a half price. He became happy and he gave money from his old valet and gave it to the owner. The owner takes the radio and wipes it with a cloth to remove the dust and check it for the working.
Yeah it is working. He took it and went to home. Then he whispered to his mind the village is also good.
