Behind every successful man ……

via Daily Prompt: Capable

She picked me up from the street. I don’t know who my parents were. She fed me, clothed me & gave me love. She worked hard, while I studied. As days rolled by, I grew young and she turned old.

“Retire and Relax, Nana”, I said.

“Not yet Munna” was her reply. “You are able to support me but still …..”

Few years rolled by and I earned my doctorate. When I broke this news, tears rolled down her cheeks. she was happy to see me in graduation attire.

“Never forget your humble beginning” She said looking into my eyes. “I can retire now. Till yesterday you were able to look after me. But with this cap today, you have become CAP-able”.

She smiled looking at me and it’s time you smile too šŸ™‚
