Saturday morning my first thing as I wake up early at 9 is to pick up phone and fix up an appointment with my dentist. The beautiful cavity around my jaw area had made my rich dentist even richer. Anyways this Saturday also I got an appointment and I was there in his clinic at 11:30 sharp. To say few words about my dentist it should really start with his age. Doc was about 65 and he had 38 years of experience with him. Smart at his age, perfectly maintained body and a yogic face he has. This Doc has 2 daughters one settled abroad and one another minting Doctor. This day my appointed started with Doc drilling down into my teeth and speaking softly about general topics just to keep me engaged and letting no time for me to realize that my tooth was getting drilled.
This clinic was attached with his home, so on a usual Saturday as doc worked on my teeth I could hear and lady speaking to her maid and sometimes over phone happily speaking, sometimes angry, I visualized and understood her to be Doc’s wife and that was correct. This Saturday, shortly after doc started to work on my teeth I could hear a little girl crying and shouting aloud and the lady trying to console her. My doc smiled at me and said it’s my grand daughter down from Singapore her parents left her here for schools. Thus she misses her parents and cries when she wakes up after a nap.
Saying this he continued to mix silver to fill in my cavity. But I could still hear those conversations from inside. Lady saying ‘ Beta if you cry like this we will send u back and ur parents will put u in Singapore school where friends are monsters and teachers beat u badly’ I thought after this the little girl would compromise but no she shouted even harshly may be she had imagined going to monster school. Like this consoling, making reasons to console her went on for another 15 min and finally Lady gave up saying do wat ever I wont listen to your cry after this conversation I could hear baby crying for another 10 min suddenly in sweet little voice baby said ‘ Naani, baby crying no’ she repeated these words again and again after this I could here lady saying ‘my baby, my little girl’ and some kissing sounds.
In all this I couldn’t stop imagining how beautiful the baby may be and how elegant the women may be. By this time my doc had finished with my teeth and after paying him I requested him to see this grand daughter. He took me in and for my astonishment the baby was very very cute than that I could imagine.
In this little incident I realized one thing we all try to over react and over act until we know somebody is there to care for us but the moment we realize no body cares we start picking up with life. This tendency of human is not stopped after childhood its carried to adulthood. With this thoughts I left the clinic smiling and with beautiful image of little girl with me :) .
