The last week has been a bit painful. I aggravated my wrist injury. I guess there were some ligaments strained. I will have to spot a splint over my right hand for a month. It had been a bit of inconvenience for the first one week. The load you had been giving to the right hand had to be distributed to the left. Even the basic human functions such as bathing and eating were becoming a chore. Anyways things are getting better.
My dad belongs to the old school of thought when it comes to spending and saving- Save as much as you can and spend as little as possible. This species are on the verge of extinction now. Thanks to higher income, people develop an itch when they don’t spend.
While I were doing my college, dad developed a passion with farming. With the little space we had, he did a vegetable garden. He went to different places to get the seeds and other technical necessities. I used to get pissed of at this. It was difficult to get the pocket money out of him. But he had no problems in spending on his garden.
During those years of rebellion, I used to question his actions. The trees failing to produce anything became a good weapon for me to jeer at him. The mango trees used to grow with much foliage but with no signs of produce.
A few weeks back they did flower and mangos have sprouted in numbers. When I look at them, I see the pointlessness in the years of rebellion. But then you’ll have to pass through all phases of your lives!
