this pic reminds me of one of my childhood incident.
I guess I must have been 4 or 5 .mmm may be 6 at that time , and I loved visiting my grandparents house. Well mostly because of the mysterious ' store' house there. It was a dark and gloomy kind of place , with a small vent in the wall high above that allowed light inside.Even today I wonder that how does that place keeps on upgrading things in it, every time I visit it , I have something new to discover.You can guess that I wasnt allowed to enter that room , well that's what made it 'mysterious' right ?
Ok, It was a nice sunny afternoon , when I went on my treasure hunt ,when every one was sleeping.And right when I entered , You bet , I saw a Beautiful glass container on one of the higher shelves of the store.
And my heart skipped a beat , and my mind stared making its plans on how to reach the self up. I had to reach it some how. I had to take the Glass container. It was so beautiful . It had to have something really really Very beautiful in it. Well ,that why it was kept up there,out of the reach of every one.I started brain storming. I had to leave no trace of my visit here. It had to be clean as possible, like always.After giving up all the plans ( which were next to perfect, not perfect) I decided to climb up the shelf it self to reach there.
And then it happened , just when I had picked up the container , I slipped . And then down went I , smashing two things together , the container ,and a few of my bones I guess. I shouted for help .,and the rest is history . Do I really need to tell you what happened after that ??
And the worst part ? The container was empty!!!!
Damn all my efforts were in vain. Plus the scolding and the pain , were the cherry on the icing.
'the forbidden fruit is not always sweet'
Thats what I learnt that day . Since then I make It a point not to be tempted by the forbidden fruit.
And believe me, I have been successful In it , well almost
