Innocent minds.

            “Anu, mummy is going to buy a new bicycle for Bittoo.” Akhil murmured to his elder sister as they lay in their bed, trying to sleep in the stifling heat.

            “Sshh! Akhil, we have been through this before, haven’t we, now? He is her son, he is entitled to it, to her love, her attention.” Anu rebuked her brother, knowing fully well her words would have no effect on his innocent   mind.

             Everything that Bittoo had — a mother, her love for him, the  indulgence — brought about a wave of envy in Akhil’s young mind; a fact that his sister could do nothing about, except encourage him to grow up and accept the harsh realities of life without a mother of their own.
