A fortnight before the summer break, we stopped taking
I interest in studies. Everyone of us made an ambitious plan to ‘ visit some place or the other. But man proposes and God I disposes. On the very first day, my mother slipped in the I jdtchen and broke her ankle. Her whole leg was plastered and she was advised bed rest for three weeks. I had to prepare ) tea and cook food for the whole family. My friends came to enquire about her health and I had to serve them as well. I kept company with my mother, told her stories and tried to make Sir happy in every possible manner. My mother could not stand the moist air of the cooler and so, I had to perspire along with her. It was not easy to prepare her bed, serve her food and change her clothes. As no male member could help, I had to bear the burden. Whenever she was to be carried to the bathroom, I had to be very careful about the plaster on her leg.
Three weeks were over. We had to carry her to the hospital to get the plaster cut. There was a long line of patients as we had to wait in the verandah, sitting on the wooden bench. It was a really trying time for all the patients in the hospital. The patients were crying with pain. Some were being taken on the stretchers while others could walk only with great difficulty. The doctor told us that plaster was to be put on once again. I wish that it would have been my leg so that I could get bed for rest for whole day !
My friends wrote from Kashmir that they were having nice time. My friends described the pleasant weather and their trekking experience from Pehalgam to Glacier. I wished that I could fly like a bird and join them. One of my aunts came all the way from Mumbai to enquire about the health of my mother. Her youngerlliri was also with her. So, I had to look after not only my mother and members of our family but also my aunt and her naughty son.
Therefore, I had to look after my mother, my family and my guests during the summer vacation.
