Seeing mother’s love and kindness the tears gradually turned into the smile.

It was 2008 when I used to study in 8th class. The syllabus was quite tough and the competition was more. So, a lot of students used to take coaching at that time. I was one of them. I used to go coaching after school which was far away from my house. The coaching center was around 4.5 kilometers. Therefore, I used to go by cycle. At that time, we would go far places either by bus or by bicycles. We don’t have smartphones also at that time. My coaching would end at 4:30 p.m. and I would reach home by 5:00 p.m.

But after the summer vacations, there was the huge pileup syllabus and we had very less time. So, our professor decided to take extra classes. Our extra classes took place on weekend. So, it was Saturday when I when for my math’s extra class. I was on my way returning home when the wind started blowing very fast. It looked like a storm was approaching. The wind was strong enough to move the tires of my bicycle. Suddenly I lost my balance over the bicycle and I fell. I got injured on elbows and knees.

Accompanied by the storm it started raining heavily. I like to dance and roam around on the bicycle. Because I love to get the wet in rain. But at that time, I was injured and my bicycle was not working. Soon I got wet completely and the wind was in its huge rush. Therefore, I started getting colder. I was shivering out of the cold.

It was 6:00 p.m. and it was dawn. The evening was turning into night gradually. My home was 2 kilometers still away from where I was. And the way was in between sand, mud, and woods. It was not a completely built tar coal road.

I was having a lot of fun in the rain. But the rain started becoming more heavy and fast. It was 7:00 p.m. now. It was a stormy night. Also, my bicycle was not working. Somehow, I managed to repair my bicycle but it gains got struck into a swamp. The whole way turned into the swamp due to rains. The mud got to stick to the tire of bicycle and it was not moving even an inch. I was not able to understand that what should I do?

If I left the bicycle there only and rushed to my home, then my mom would scold me a lot that I left my bicycle there only. I was also afraid that my bag including my books and stationary all will become wet so I should move as faster as I can.

So, I decided to do something. As my bicycle was not moving even a single inch I pick my bicycle and somehow managed to keep it safe under a huge banyan tree and headed towards my home. In my mind, I was still frightened. As I was approaching my home, my clothes and my bag were completely wet and had stains of mud on them. I was scared that my mom would reprimand me a lot.

As I was reaching home, I saw my mom was holding an umbrella and was looking for me. She had searched me in the neighboring localities but haven’t found me. She was tensed. When I reached near my mom I rushed towards her and hugged her tightly. She hugged be back and I began sobbing hardly. Mom said to me, “Don’t worry. I will buy you the new bag, new clothes, and new books. I will also give your bicycle to a mechanic to repair it.”

After listening all this my tears turned into a very big smile. This was the best smile that I ever had. I never found that smile on my face.

The sky was sobbing and beaming along with me. I don’t know when will that rain happen again. That day my mom’s love was more than the amount of water that poured in rain.
