It all started when a pup was on roof of a building. I dunno how that pup reached there and that too when it was my house’s roof. Well lets concentrate on actual story. The pup was too cute, and was much like a sweet puppy. It (i dunno whether “it” was male or female) was playing and jumping here and there. We were in house (me and my mother) and were able to see the pup playing, and were appreciating the small pup and the way it was playing. We were happy watching the pup play. It was much like a small kid who tries to run after everything and falls in between. Somehow he had got some ball and was rolling it here and there. It all seemed very sweet and soothing.

Suddenly something happened and the pup started falling off the roof !!! May be it slipped off the roof. We could see the pup falling off the roof from our window and could not do anything. In that small duration of time many thoughts crossed our mind. We were feeling very sorry for the pup and were outrageous for the roof (how come it let the pup slip off, how roof turned to be so slippery). We could see the ball hitting the ground and that scene just hit our minds. We were very sorry and were feeling too much pain (as if someone whom we know is going to die). We were feeling so helpless and were hopeless for it. The pup was falling and after each instant of time we were feeling more and more helpless and sorry for the kid(the small pup).

But as is said, “Jako rakhe saaiyaan, Maar sake na koi”. Somehow a vulture came and caught the pup. Though she was wounded herself but still she came to help the poor, little, sweet pup. She caught it and came to our window. We were shocked to see this. for an instant we were totally blank. Suddenly we realized we must let them in, and treat them. So I quickly opened the window and vulture helped pup to enter home and then we called vulture in too. We did some treatment of vulture and in the mean time vulture was caring the pup. It was so touching moment. I mean first, the vulture herself was wounded and still came to help the pup and second, when we were doing treatment of vulture, she was caring the pup. At that instant of time I felt so much respect for that mother (also for my mom). The pup was also feeling the mother care of vulture and was responding with love to vulture. I was able to see the universal nature of mother in front of my eyes. It was all so sweet and mesmerizing. A small happy family of mom and kid.

But then came a b**** , well no I am not slanging. Original mother of pup came. So she was female dog i.e. b****. Well back to story. She came and asked for her child. Here came the twist. The vulture refused to give the pup. She had a bond built with pup and was unwilling to giver her child (thats what she thought). I was frozen, I mean I could see everything just with my naked eyes and I was unable to decide what to do. Both mothers were right in their position and were unwilling to leave the small pup. A fight was about to start between the two.

But then, the third mom present in room came to rescue, my mother. She told vulture mom, to leave the pup because they are not of same race and she could not nurture the pup well. Though it was hard to let the vulture realize this, you know mother’s heart, but my mother is also not someone else (when she start teaching someone, she can’t stop) . Well somehow my mother was able to make her realize that the pup should be given to original mom.

But again a twist. The pup had seen an instance of mother in vulture. It (pup) was unwilling to leave the vulture mom. I was so touched by this that I started feeling dry and soaked from inside. So I went to have a glass of water :P. But when I came the scene of room was changed. The vulture was now holding the pup tightly as if trying to hurt the pup. I couldn’t understand what happened. I went to vulture and asked what is she doing and told to leave the pup. She left the pup and the pup ran to original mom. Then the vulture turned towards me and said: “Thats what I was doing. Had I not tried to show the kid that I am hurting it, it won’t have left me”, and I could see tears in her eyes falling. It was so like in HD that I could see the tear drop clearly and the vulture wiping it off with her wings. Well at that instant of time one more thought came to my mind: “From when vulture started watching movies!”.
I thought to give a “Jaadu ki Jhappi” to vulture but before that she fled away of window. Leaving me in disdain. I couldn’t understand what just happened. It was like something drilling me from inside. I hugged my mother and felt her care.

Later in evening when I was roaming outside, I saw the same female dog playing with that vulture. The vulture was looking very low and female dog was trying hard to make her happy. She was passing the ball to vulture (the same ball with which pup was playing on my roof). It just made me realize that “Love is everywhere”, we just need to open our eyes, and then I opened my eyes.
Well it was a nice Dream !!!!!!!
