On that bed I see my mother...

Mother closes her eyes, still breathing and she is calm…But now others are restless…

She is on a bed…she moves her eyes restlessly…Why she is restless? Yes, no one looks at her…
A lady comes out of a kitchen carrying a lunch pack and she loudly calls, “where are you Robin, come down immediately, you are getting late, you are going to miss your bus...come down my son.” “I am coming mom”…a boyish voice fills the room. An old lady on bed turns her face to...wards the room, from where the boy answered. And there, young boy comes out tucking his shirt…adjusting the neck tie and yells at his mother, “Come on mother…just see, today also you made me late, it’s your fault…Mama, you must understand, you need to wake me up at least, half an hour in advance…It’s okay…thank God, I woke up…” Before she could say anything…that boy grabs the lunch box from her hand and rush outside.

A man comes out from another room, holding in one hand a coffee mug and in another a news paper and uninterestedly ask “why so much of commotion, for God sake ,why you all make so much of noise, oh! I can never get a peace in this house…what the hell is going on.” Expectantly, not getting any answer, he digs himself to huge sofa with no appetite for any answer. From his expression it appears that he is least interested in getting any response.

It’s so silent in that house; but lady on bed is restless…why she is restless? Yes, no one notices her …

After half an hour, the man is at the porch, with a middle age woman, his wife, he gets into the car and the customary glance of ritualistic affection provides a visual delight of heavenly bonds.
In this house a happy family resides. And in this house a lady on bed is restless…why she is restless? No one feels her …
The old lady on bed is restless…No one looks at her…No one notices her…No one feels her…

The lady closes her eyes, still breathing and she is calm…But now others are restless…

On that bed, I see my mother…
