The Gold Coin

Vijay Shankar | 28-Feb-2017

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Rishi, who lived in the village of Naarangpur. He had a small family of 4 members with his father, mother and little sister Anju. He was very happy with life and never complained God about his poverty and lifestyle issue. His father worked at a tea stall and mother went in search of odd jobs like broom making, bangle factory etc. The two kids go to school daily and learn new things.

One day both the kids were coming back to home. Suddenly they saw a gold coin on the road.Rishu was amazed to see that coin and he thought God has gifted him with His blessings. They both took it to home and showed it to their parents but none of them believed that a gold coin can be just found lying on the road to them & left Rishi with his dreamy coin. But after a while when Rishi's father looked at the coin he came to know that it was actually a real gold coin. Rishi's parents were amazed but filled with a threat to sell it in the market. So they decided to keep it for a while and sell it after Holi. After Holi, his father thought to sell it to his friend Karan who generally goes to new town in a month. He thought he could get a good amount of money there. Therefore he gave that coin to Karan to sell it off. A true friend like Karan was the final hope of the family. Karan came to a city and looked for a good buyer and he found no men to buy that coin when Karan's boss came to know about the coin, He asked him to sell it to him as he had his wedding anniversary soon. Karan happily gave that coin to him and earned Rs 6000.After this Karan went his village & he gave that money to the family.Surprisingly Rishi's father gave Rs 1000 to him as a reward. After sometimes family started their own business of tea stall. The business went good and brought days of prosperity to the entire family. Rishi went Delhi for higher studies where he successfully passed B.Tech. Within 5 years after the degree, he made an engine that a famous car company was wanting. The company employed him as the Chief engineer of the firm. He called the entire family in the city and lived happily thereafter ever. Everything was normal until he got married to Chaya who was the daughter of Karan's boss. He was happy to see that what he desired had everything now. He started his own business afterwards and always took help in decision making from his father who was with a deep understanding of the market strategies. Rishi became successful in this business and his family was happy now.On the occasion of 35th anniversary of his Mother and Dad, he gifted them a similar gold coin he had in childhood with his parent’s name engraved on it with a letter which had the message,

“THANK YOU, MOM AND DAD, FOR HAVING ME WHAT WAS ALWAYS RIGHT FOR ME, SCOLDING ON MY WRONGS, MAKING SOLUTIONS TO MY PROBLEMS AND ALWAYS BEING MY BEST FRIEND, I LOVE YOU TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER.THIS GOLD COIN BRING ME WHERE I AM NOW AND ALWAYS ACHIEVED WHAT I DESIRED, I JUST WANT TO GIVE IT TO YOU WITH THE ONLY PROMISE NOT TO LIVE ME EVER ALONE, IN GOODS OR BADS, IN DARK OR LIGHT, IN PROS AND CONS LOVE YOU ...................................YOUR RISHI
