    It is a different colour .I have no words to explain it, but it is my favourite colour. Today is a festival eve. When I hear those sounds of crackers I feel adventurous I feel ecstatic when people visit my place, and provide sweets to us. This year none of them came… Muthu started recalling the past four years of Diwali.All the people in Chennai were celebrating the festival eve "Diwali" except muthu. He is a 10 years old with dark in complexion, thin, wrinkled eye. There is a line of sorrow always run through his face. People around him know the cause for his mysterious face. Muthu was unable run along the speed of the world .He has his own world decorated with colorful dreams .He is no more interested in mingling up with the surroundings. Even no one tried to disturb him. In his dream world, he always hear his mom calling him
    “Muthu come here my boy open your mouth” she feed her those diwali sweets.
    Muthu opened his mouth but he is an unluckiest boy, it was a mere dream.He heared a sound and recognised the voice its rather than Radhaama'a voice.She is the president of that orphanage
    “Muthu go and wear your clothes I have stitched those torn areas and ironed and kept it in your shelf, soon its time for us to celebrate Diwali”, Radhaama called him with concern..She is kind enough to all of the children in orphanage. He forced him to the real world.
    He was not interested in wearing those clothes .He thought not to hurt the feeling of Radhaama, so he reluctantly wore the cloth .If his mother is alive she would have at least purchased him a cheapest cloth put for sale in the nearby platform. He is a half orphan when she died. But whole-heartedly he felt his birth to be a misfortune and anathema when his father drop him in the nearby orphanage and got married. The news shattered him. He has no words to express his in depth feelings. The orphanage itself runs in a very weak in economical situation and Radhaama spend all her salary for the welfare of orphanage. Muthu’s friends Kumar called him and show him a colorful cracker outburst in the sky. Though muthu tried to conceal his tears before his friend ,but Kumar recognized the reason for the silence .He realized the mistake he has done.
    “Muthu I am extremely sorry da I haven’t mean it, I am terribly sorry da “
    “Its ok Kumar, I haven’t take it in a wrong way “
    Muthu moved with his stick provided by the government for physically challenged blind children.

    Let us celebrate our Diwali with those children and lend our hands for them and make the diwali a colorful diwali. They need is not sympathy but Love ….One and only love

    Dear Nalini,

    That was very nicely written...

    Yes, we all think of people above us and the amount they spend on the crackers and we try to imitate them, but we forget to look below and see the people who couldnt celebrate at all...

    Yes, we should try... at least to make a difference in one of their lives...

    Hi Vysan,

    Thank you for your appreciation. The above writing is my first scribble in English. I want to start my writing in an emotional and thought provoking one and so the concept strikes me and i started writing it. Please keep on encouraging me to pen down and come up with more interesting and emotional pieces.

    A very pleasant evening to you ish ma'am!

    The narrative was good! Yes, many are depressed because their parents were reckless about their lives. "What the society can do for them?"- has always been the question which i have asked myself!

    Many will to adopt. But how many families do agree with the same? According to me, the youngsters can take part in the same. I would like to quote my friend here. Her ambition in life is to raise an "orphanage" for kids. I think the idea should really be appreciated.

    Youngsters can come forward and do what ever small they can do for those who are in need!

    Regards

I pray lord almighty to guide your friend who have a wonderful heart and please keep on encouraging her for her worth ambition.Lets ,make the world with no orphanage and all of them are adopted by someone.

    nicely written, Nalini, which brought out the plight of 'impaired orphan' and also the plight of not enough funds to run those 'orphanges'.It is better to celebrate our festivites with such children and make them happy.sriniketan
