FOOD FOR THE SOUL



Sleep vacated its abode from his eyes and mind after the ghastly accident. The very thought of mobile motors haunted his soul and spirit.  He stared at his amputated leg with tear-bathed face. Influxes of visitors disturbed him.  No word of sympathy or empathy cheered him. Silent sobbing disturbed the calm of his room. The visuals of his age-mates in teens making merriment in games pierced his mind. But his beloved class-teacher’s arrival blew a soft breeze into his bleeding heart. “You have been selected in the National team for the scholastic contest abroad”. Her words were ‘Food for his Soul.’
