It was more than a year and he had made his way, considerably, up to the kid. He helped the ladies in the house as well, which made him more trustworthy. He would help the mistress to play the kid, get him ready for his school. He helped all in such a way that he soon became a family member for the landlord. But he could just observe him and do no more. On more than one occasion he got the chance to run away with the kid but running away with the kid out of the bungalow was still a distant dream for him.
He was near the kid and always talked to him. But one day such dawned that as he had taken a drastic decision of stealing to keep himself alive, this day too was a fortune-turning one. He met the kid once.
“My Little Master, how are you?”
“I am fine Uncle. How are you?”
“Well, God has not done anything good for me.”
“Please don’t say so. He takes care of all of us, and of this entire universe. He will do some good to you too. I am sure.”
“But I don’t think that is happening with me.”
“You are blaming Him I think. And that’s not a good.”
“I don’t think I am blaming Him. I am just expressing that luck is not on my part these days.”
“Never blame the days that are bestowed on you by Him. These days are a chance given to you in the form of life to do well to others. So never blame a day. If your days are good, they will give you happiness. On the other hand, the bad days give you the experiences that no bookish knowledge will give you. Experience is the best teacher, but its fees are too high, they say.
If your days are worst still, they teach you a lesson how to act in this world. And if the days are best for you, as are mine presently, they give you lifetime memories. So never blame Him neither the human life given to you by Him, which is all but rare.”
The entire talk by the especially kid looked over his age. It opened Janardan’s eyes. He forgot that he had come there with a wicked thought in mind. It was such a sin that would have hardly been forgiven by anyone. It was the second time in his life that he was taking a decision that would prove to be a turning point in his life. He again decided to tread the path of honesty till his last breath. Such a positive attitude made him feel lighter. His untainted mind made him bold to take on the world.
