The Teacher – Flash Fiction Writing

When her first son was born everyone celebrated. Her mother-in-law couldn’t contain her happiness over the grandson. Mridula herself got the special treatment which she had never experienced earlier.

Two more sons later, she thought their family looked complete – a happy family. Relatives always had said – “Your future is secured, you have three sons to look after you”. There wasn’t anyone who didn’t pamper her sons.

Life is a game of light and dark. Dark clouds hovered over her life twenty years later when the old couple found themselves out in the streets without a roof on their heads. The sons had thrown them out from their own property.

Today this tiny room in the slum is their home and she’s the ‘teacherji’ for the slum’s children and their mothers. She encouraged the mothers to be independent so that no one had to depend on their children later in life.

    The harsh truth which parents need to realise- stop considering your children as the insurance in life. Nice take Tina
