THE PINK FROCK (STORY)

Child labour is a crime. Isn’t this line very familiar? But for this little girl, Dhanya, this line was baseless. Eldest among her three siblings, this 8 year old, fatherless girl, knew only one thing, sunrise means getting up and going to Aunty’s house to do all the household works. 

Aunty was a good task master, merciless, with her motto that she is paying money, so all the servants have to work, whatever the situation maybe.

Evening this tired girl used to come home, to see her siblings waiting for the leftovers, given by Aunty. Her sick, fragile mother also worked in many houses to make their ends meet.

Journey was tough, but the spark of happiness in Dhanya’s life was the showroom nearby, where she use to go to see the mannequiens wearing beautiful frocks. And among the frocks, a pink frock was her love. She used to dream, that wearing it she reaches to the fairy land and the world’s best things are at her disposal. This dream was the only happiness in her life and she use to long for that frock. Her heart, her soul, her wishes, her desire became that frock.

One day, as she was staring at the frock, a big car stopped in front of her and a pretty girl of her age, along with her mother walked in the showroom. Suddenly Dhanya saw the salesman changing the manniquein into another frock. She sat on the floor, her heart sank, realising that the girl has bought her dream frock. Her only happiness was going away forever.

The next moment, she could see the girl, wearing that frock and coming out. Tears of desire, tears of hollowness, tears of lost dream… flowed uncontrollably.

Sobbing, she looked at the frock, to bid her last farewell, but what she saw, was that girl struggling to take out the frock strucked in the barbed wire, near her car.

Her mother screamed,” Oh, the frock is torn, how can my princess wear a torn frock, come lets go and get the best frock from the showroom.”

They went in, and the princess came out wearing the best frock. Her mother saw Dhanya standing, simply gave that frock to her and walked away.

Till now Dhanya was crying, but with the dream frock in her hand, she was blank, numb… So much of happiness was beyond her imagination. But the next moment, her self-esteem started arguing with her mind. She thought, ” Did they give the frock because they thought I am a beggar? I didn’t beg, I can never beg! God, I asked from you, but I didn’t ask them. I work hard to earn a meal, I am not a beggar.” The pride, the self-respect of a child was hurt.

Her mother who was witnessing everything, since long, read her mind. She hugged her daughter and said,” They didn’t think anything about you… actually they gave it because they didn’t want it, you got it because you deserved it. You are not a begger, you are the fortunate one and fortune chooses their own way to reach the deserving one. So don’t doubt, it’s all yours.”

Tears rolled over Dhanya’s cheek…the stream could reveal her whimpering…her soul wailed to breathe a respite…she was happy, very happy.

Her mother darned the frock.The frock was again as good as new. Who says princess are different?? Dhanya in that frock was looking every inch a princess, a fairy, an angel.

Make your wish, your desire, so big that it comes running to you. Have the courage to dream, the starting point of achievement is your dream, your desire.

  1. Reminds me of The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho. … yes the wonder works… I am just doing my exercise over my extra sensory perception to call through full moon from my terrace … it worked. .. I had several such trysts n rendezvous with my calls… Pink frock is a beautifully story enriched with wisdom to get thru… it inspires n stimulates souls… but my way of comments…. I am yet to be done… wait for other pending comments. …

  2. Children are born to live and bloom freely but our society suppresses the desires and wishes of the blooming buds by sending them to work at their very tender age and deprive them from their rights.
    Nice story.

  3. I would classify it’s genre as a work of fiction & inspiration & would be scrounging upon THE ALCHEMIST-Paulo Coelho (PC) very indiscriminately in this comment….and yes few of my usual songs…. Things which captivates a reader is derivative of participations on ecstasy, fast moving plot, humor, satire, passion, doubtfulness or emotions…& repertoire for rest few may be a liking for history, facts, philosophy, scientific developments, inspirational works or fiction having blended inputs and sometimes a real attainment story. In my surveillance your blog’s palate seems to be mostly sodden into emotions & blues, but after a long spell you could come with virtuous story having no hues of despondency ….(And yes what Shahrukh Khan says, IF PICTURE HAS NO HAPPIES ENDINGS THENS PICTURE ABHI BAAKI HAE DOST. HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/0MPq88Nas9o” https://youtu.be/0MPq88Nas9o )….and you have thrived benevolently to impart us a good communiqué as well. THIS IS IN SOME WAY A PRÉCIS OF THE ALCHEMIST … great saga served in newfangled manner….on LOVE, HEART, SOUL, DREAM, COSMOS, DESTINY, BLESSINGS, FEARS, FAILURES, LIFE…….

    In legal parlance child labor is a crime & the motive behind this deployment in the developing & third world economies is to curb the cost of commerce, laws thus fails to impede such profiteering activities. And yet somewhere …NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, EVERY PERSON ON THE EARTH PLAYS A CENTRAL ROLE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. AND NORMALLY HE DOESN’T KNOW IT (PC)….(no bounds limited) therefore in a small hamlet amongst downtrodden and oppressed families someone always have STARS IN THEIR EYES AND FIRE IN THEIR BELLIES. Yes that’s the cosmic conspiracy to pay dividends for their karma or rewriting of an entirely new destiny or simply placebo effect on belief system…..believing oneself fuels us to reach zenith. PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE, AT ANY TIME IN THEIR LIVES, OF DOING WHAT THEY DREAM OF (PC).

    Dhanya had a vision, an obsession unperturbed amidst any distractions… ( HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/BkBMqyxvBk8” https://youtu.be/BkBMqyxvBk8 HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/tZdIjIwkXYk” https://youtu.be/tZdIjIwkXYk HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/J5Xzjg78ZWg” https://youtu.be/J5Xzjg78ZWg HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/lmmWgYO2154” https://youtu.be/lmmWgYO2154 …. & so is wisdom enshrined in MADHUSHALA) one should be beguiled to such propensity for his endeavor so that everything catapults him into the right trajectory. IT IS SAID THAT ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE HAPPY HAVE GOD WITHIN THEM (PC)….girl was happy to see her dress each day…. WHEN EACH DAY IS THE SAME AS THE NEXT, IT’S BECAUSE PEOPLE FAIL TO RECOGNIZE THE GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN THEIR LIVES EVERY DAY THAT THE SUN RISES (PC)….and this little girl had her own custom to see sunshine daily….. Despite her bleak chances to overcome withering monotonous conditions, purchasing ability, while working under exploited merciless surroundings, yet she dreamt of her happiness. IT’S THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING A DREAM COME TRUE THAT MAKES LIFE INTERESTING (PC). The dream was her love & a source to boost herself to pinnacle (and means was a dress to be a fairy where the world could offer her the best….eventually a success significantly connoted…a child’s own dream own love or obsession would appear to hover around simpler things as compared to grownups) …her heart was pulsating for the pursuit of attaining the dress only & yet despite her impediments & infirmities she didn’t stopped listening to her heart…. YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO ESCAPE FROM YOUR HEART. SO IT’S BETTER TO LISTEN TO WHAT IT HAS TO SAY (PC)….. And so it was a dream to gaze at her aspirations (dress), which kindled her to see another day & another day, till she could finally succeed (wear) in it somehow…. It’s a success story.

    Love is thus that mystic firewood & love can be for anything & I say it’s bilateral only even then…. & (PC) says THIS IS WHAT WE CALL LOVE. WHEN YOU ARE LOVED, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IN CREATION. WHEN YOU ARE LOVED, THERE’S NO NEED AT ALL TO UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENING, BECAUSE EVERYTHING HAPPENS WITHIN YOU. So, Love has been epitomized as dress and if we see true love, then it knows no metes & bounds, consequently dress (love) finds DHANYA (lover)…how beautiful it’s to imagine dress too falling in love with DHANYA …..the dress reciprocated its love too, I LOVE YOU BECAUSE THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE CONSPIRED TO HELP ME FIND YOU (PC)….we read how dress got torn & was darned to adorn DHANYA ONLY…….this was simply a conspiracy…DHANYA loved the dress & reciprocating DRESS too loved her……this song will guide how to love & what ALMIGHTY CONSPIRES BY ALLOCATING WHERE YOUR SHARE OF LOVE IS song supports (PC)… HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/HKuINNJDys4” https://youtu.be/HKuINNJDys4 .

    I DON’T LIVE IN EITHER MY PAST OR MY FUTURE. I AM INTERESTED ONLY IN THE PRESENT. IF YOU CAN CONCENTRATE ALWAYS ON THE PRESENT, YOU WILL BE A HAPPY MAN. LIFE WILL BE A PARTY FOR YOU, A GRAND FESTIVAL; BECAUSE LIFE IS THE MOMENT WE ARE LIVING NOW (PC)….the girl was happy with her daily present till her dress was on the mannequin…she erred for a while by wailing & whimpering to know about her future…. (1)AT A CERTAIN POINT IN OUR LIVES, WE LOSE CONTROL OF WHAT’S HAPPENING TO US, AND OUR LIVES BECOME CONTROLLED BY FATE. THAT’S THE WORLD’S GREATEST LIE. (2)EVERYONE ON EARTH HAS A TREASURE THAT AWAITS HIM. (3)GOD ONLY RARELY REVEALS THE FUTURE. WHEN HE DOES SO, IT IS FOR ONE REASON: IT’S A FUTURE THAT WAS WRITTEN SO AS TO BE ALTERED (PC)…..yet now it was the time for the DRESS to activate with ALMIGHTY’S conspiracy to give her happiness in her future transforming into the then present life……. AND, WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING, ALL THE UNIVERSE CONSPIRES IN HELPING YOU TO ACHIEVE IT (PC)…. And one day her dress is into wrong domain, but how it could happen…..rewriting immediately started…. WE ARE THE TRAVELLERS ON A COSMIC JOURNEY, STARDUST, SWIRLING AND DANCING EDDIES AND WHIRLPOOLS OF INFINITY (PC)…. yes it was a whirl then in the eternity conspiring to make two lovers one in unison. AND WHEN TWO SUCH PEOPLE ENCOUNTER EACH OTHER, AND THEIR EYES MEET, THE PAST AND THE FUTURE BECOME UNIMPORTANT. THERE IS ONLY THAT MOMENT, AND THE INCREDIBLE CERTAINTY THAT EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY ONE HAND ONLY. IT IS THE HAND THAT EVOKES LOVE, AND CREATES A TWIN SOUL FOR EVERY PERSON IN THE WORLD. WITHOUT SUCH LOVE, ONE’S DREAMS WOULD HAVE NO MEANING (PC).….THE DHANYA & THE DRESS made for each other or finding your happiness & destiny is like you becoming a part of actual pairing… AND WHEN YOU CAN’T GO BACK, YOU HAVE TO WORRY ONLY ABOUT THE BEST WAY OF MOVING FORWARD (PC)…..she moved with her might, yet frozen….though not mentioned but is left for our wisdom & obvious speculations… THERE IS ONLY ONE THING THAT MAKES A DREAM IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE: THE FEAR OF FAILURE (PC)….she might have failed from her purchasing capacities but not as a deserving soul, she loved to see it, to feel wonders of wearing it…..THEIR CHEMISTRY WAS PERFECT…. & she was standing beside her love going away and she remained a spectator for the love to come back to her (the love still for the torn dress….) DON’T THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE LEFT BEHIND. THE ALCHEMIST SAID TO THE BOY AS THEY BEGAN TO RIDE ACROSS THE SANDS OF DESERT. IF WHAT ONE FINDS IS MADE OF PURE MATTER, IT WILL NEVER SPOIL. AND ONE CAN ALWAYS COME BACK. IF WHAT YOU HAD FOUND WAS ONLY A MOMENT OF LIGHT, LIKE THE EXPLOSION OF A STAR, YOU WOULD FIND NOTHING ON YOUR RETURN (PC)……actually it was a pairing switched by humans earlier & rectified by COSMOS later. Beautiful lines have been then written by blogger…YOU ARE THE FORTUNATE ONE AND FORTUNE CHOOSES THEIR OWN WAY TO REACH THE DESERVING ONE, SO DON’T DOUBT, IT’S ALL YOURS ……it’s like a divine motherly prophecy and with adjunct ingrained divinity.

    In last, beautiful lines of wisdom has been etched by blogger…. MAKE YOUR WISH, YOUR DESIRE, SO BIG THAT IT COMES RUNNING TO YOU. HAVE THE COURAGE TO DREAM, THE STARTING POINT OF ACHIEVEMENT IS YOUR DREAM, YOUR DESIRE….. And (PC) says WHY DO WE HAVE TO LISTEN TO OUR HEARTS? THE BOY ASKED. BECAUSE, WHEREVER YOUR HEART IS, THAT IS WHERE YOU WILL FIND YOUR TREASURE. Dreaming develops the propensity to have courage….just synchronize your hearts.

    Yes Gods do come to rescue then…..we need to spread our wings to fly… DON’T GIVE INTO YOUR FEARS. IF YOU DO, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO TALK TO YOUR HEART (PC)…. TELL YOUR HEART THAT THE FEAR OF SUFFERING IS WORSE THAN THE SUFFERING ITSELF. AND THAT NO HEART HAS EVER SUFFERED WHEN IT GOES IN SEARCH OF ITS DREAMS, BECAUSE EVERY SECOND OF THE SEARCH IS A SECOND’S ENCOUNTER WITH GOD AND WITH ETERNITY….. (PC)…REMEMBER THAT WHEREVER YOUR HEART IS, THERE YOU WILL FIND YOUR TREASURE (PC). So actually He conspires to let you not fall down from there, then if your intentions are pure….you then simply soar up & higher……so stand up, get geared up, walk graciously & listen to inspiring call… HYPERLINK “https://youtu.be/LvVIz1pkQ1k” https://youtu.be/LvVIz1pkQ1k MAKING OF DECISION WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF THE THINGS. WHEN SOMEONE MAKES A DECISION, HE IS REALLY DIVING INTO A STRONG CURRENT THAT WILL CARRY HIM TO PLACES HE HAD NEVER DREAMED OF WHEN HE FIRST MADE THE DECISION (PC).
