He made them proud..

He had only seen poverty. While his father was a daily wage labourer, his mother worked from house to house washing dishes. But despite their struggles, they tried to ensure that they could educate him so that he had a better life. They always felt that – In their dreams they sleep with the moon.

As luck would have it, their son got a scholarship. Post his education, within the first year of joining an MNC, he made sure that his parents were out of the misery they had lived in. He had made them proud after all. While others did a lot of yada, yada, yada about taking care of parents, he made sure he actually did.

When he was a child he couldn’t ever dream of having a debit card. But now he was making sure that anyone could access the banking system.

“After days of rain, it’s a delight to see the sun shining in all its glory. It would have been beautiful if we had our children with us today.” Gloria couldn’t help but remember the days gone by.

The Robinson’s always made it a point to spend their weekends in their garden. While the children played on the rides, the parents discussed about everything under the sun. It was a lovely way for the family to bond together.

Once the children left for university and then got jobs, the times spent in the garden became nothing but a distant memory.
