On a fine evening the wife was very happy and was about to make coffee in the kitchen…the husband was having a nice time too-having come home early that day and the evening that planned ahead was wow..garam garam moong ke bhajiye,corns and hot coffee…to make it perfect was the rains…perfect perfect evening once could ask for,right ?
Oh boy! But whatever you wish for and plan for doesn’t come to your way just like that…isn’t it ? I can see lot of nodding in agreement there…yeah yeah I know you’ ve been there too ! Sigh, so the fine evening turned out to be so-not-very-fine one…oh how ?
No! we didn’t get any visitors at home intruding “our-solace-time”..not even any phone call made that time a boring time where either of the partner is looking here and there..surfing the channels may be..flipping the freshly arrived Femina…and thinking when will the person at other end will disconnect-which neither of the partners could do since it’s your relative or someone whom you can’t say no at that moment !
So nothing of this sorts happened…but what happened was totally unexpected and new for me indeed !
I burnt my own fingers..left hand…by doing a really stupid thing that I could’ve done in my life…since I was making coffee I had boiled some water for that and forgot that it was the same container which had HOT water…and I gripped that container with my bare hands ! Oooooooooooooooooooo my god ! Such a pain it is…for almost an hour I just could not don anything but cry and hold my fingers in the water….my god I’m telling you it’s deadliest pain ever,really !
Oh yes, this was my first time to get burnt with the hot water utensil or any other type…ya now it’s pretty much better…at least it doesn’t hurt..only that my middle finger has this blister which looks bad 😦
Okay the whole episode just made me think of one thing which I dread of…just holding that hot water pot made me make hue and cry for such a long time…what with those who have to suffer the burn on their entire body ? Specially who are burnt on purpose ? How could somebody do this to some living being ? It hurts so much..those of you have a similar experience like mine must know to what I mean by HURT..I know it’s a very very small word for the pain that I’m talking about…
I wish people would think more humanly and stop being monsters to the mankind…I also truly agree with the old adage…’only when you step into others’ shoes is when you know what the shoe bite means’
I wish all those who are suffering and struggling to recover from this pain..a good luck and hug !
I feel sad..there is nothing you can do about it … nothing you can do the rewind..erase the incident..I’m really feeling helpless for those !
