Today is the death anniversary of Shonaya. Now she is not in this world , still her soul is in our home. Her thinking , her soul and her emotions all stays in the heart of my daughter.
I still remember that day when Shonaya and I both worked together as Engineers. Both of us were good friends. Both of us talked with each other for long hours. We loved each other and took a decision to spend whole life together.
One day when I was going to introduce Shonaya with my parents suddenly we heard a cry of baby and this voice was coming from a dustbin , it was a 2 – 3 months girl child. She was shivering because of cold. Not a single relative of that girl was there and she was crying a lot. Shonaya took her in lap and that girl stopped weeping and we went to the police station to file a report. In the whole process of filing the report in police station that girl was in the lap of Shonaya. We felt that girl was feeling safe in the lap of Shonaya and Shonaya felt attatched with that girl. Police officer sent that girl in orphanage.
After giving many advertisements no relative of that girl came to get her and she started living in an orphanage but Shonaya was not able to forget that girl. All-time Shonaya thinking about her.She took a decision to adopt that girl. She discussed that matter with me but I was not agreeing with her decision because I knew that my parents will never accept that girl even me also. Shonaya didn’t want to understand my parent s and I .Her aim was only to give a best life of that girl and Shonaya didn’t want to see that girl in orphanage so she adopted that girls without my consent and I broke all relationship with Shonaya.
Now in office we both are just strangers. We met with each other daily and talked about some projects, some office work and then we changed our direction .She was very happy after broken our relationship because now she is with her daughter and she thought that if today that person can’t understand my feelings and my thinking then how can that person understand me in whole life .
Now only one person is in her life which is her daughter. She wanted to give all happiness to her daughter. She was not angry with me but my angriness and hate continuously increasing for her . One day I went in the marriage party of one of my colleagues. I saw a baby girl in a nice frock and she was looking so beautiful. She is running towards my side.Suddenly I took her in my lap and when I turned I saw that Shonaya is standing in front of me and that girl was the daughter of Shonaya which she adopted before two years. Really in all that hate I forget how these two year passed away. It was really very shocking for me to see Shonaya and her daughter in my Lap.For a moment I forgot all matters and just thought about one thing if that day this beautiful girl were not adopted by Shonaya then now she is living in a orphanage and now I am feeling guilty about my decisions that I had took before two years.
It was also very amazing for me that in this crowd she came towards only in my side because she is the daughter of Shonaya and I am the love of Shonaya and that’s why her also. Because of that girl I broke all relationship with Shonaya and I started hate with Shonaya and today just because of that girl I am feeling that some love is still remaining between us. Today I am feeling all lacking only in myself.Today really I understand Shonaya just because of her daughter and now I want to accept her daughter .
Suddenly Shonaya call her daughter but she refused to come in the lap of her mother because she wanted to spend some time with me. All this is very uneasy for Shonaya . Than I said sorry Shonaya . Shonaya gloating me and it was very difficult to understand what is happening with us. Now we both were standing together just because of her daughter . That lovely moment we spent only and only because of her daughter .
After some time Shonaya forgive me for each and every thing that I had done with her and we get married. After our marriage we lived a very beautiful life with our daughter .Now Shonaya is not with us but our daughter is same as Shonaya. She is encouraging the people to adopt the child so that no any child lives his life in orphanage. Now I feeling that she is really daughter of Shonaya.
