All were set to happen because the vacation had started. The schools would remain shut for the next week. A 7 year old kid was relieved to take a break from routine and so was his father from his work.
The father-son duo complemented each other in most of their day-to-day activities. The dad was an early riser from bed while the son was a late riser. The dad cared more about stuff while the son cared less. The dad was religious while the son wasn’t. The son cared only to stand beside his dad during all religious ceremonies.
The festival carnival began with much fun-fair. The dad wanted to visit a religious center that day. He derived his strength from the faith and belief of his religion. The son derived his strength from a non-religious belief system.
The dad didn’t give any choice. He dragged the kid to his place of worship. The crowd and the brief spell of rain ensured chaos in the area. The rain stopped but the chaos didn’t. The dad lost his grip on his son’s hand, yet still continuing his focus on his pursuit to witness the religious idol and pray.
The son was lost in the crowd and couldn’t find any known faces. Tears rolled down and the dusty cheeks were wiped not to stop the tears but to pave the way for more tears.
The dad’s eyes were glued to look out for the idol while the son’s eyes were rolled everywhere to look out for the dad.
Both were looking for something. That something which is perceived higher by both of them in their individualistic ways. The truth is that both were lost and desperately wanted to find something that could comfort them.
The rain stopped but the tears didn’t. The dad was starting to get view of the idol and his iris of the eyes widened to tell the world that he was ecstatic. Just then, the son caught that restlessness of the dad and he ran towards his dad to hold his hand. Ecstasy followed the kid.
As soon as the rain stopped, the clouds paved way for the sun rays to pierce the sky and reach the ground. The grumpy sunflowers turned to the sun to gather their ecstasy.
All happened in a short span of time with the day ending bright.
