Tried Fiction storywriting for the first time, I hope, I do justice with the theme 🙂
The story starts with a couple welcoming home a cute baby girl, her eyes- twinkling & wide open, They named her Binita. Binita was a bright and humble girl, who always had spread charm wherever she went. Other than being good in Academics, She sang well and loved to get absorbed in books. Her Father was a farmer and her mother used to help him in fields and took care of household chores. They wanted Binita to be a Doctor, while she wanted to be a Singer which she never told her parents. She lost her parents when she was 14 and her relatives married her to Aakav from a Zameendar family. Binita has lost all her hopes & interest in sudies and in singing too. Aakav’s little sister and their father were his family, he used to take care of his sister like his mother did, he had lost her when he was a lad. Binita wasn’t as charming or lively as she earlier used to be. One day she found few books in the house and read them all in a couple of days, which Aakav noticed and got some more books for her in a beautifully wraped box for her. She had opened it and got a note saying- “Dear Binita, why don’t you complete your studies and fulfill your parents’ dream”. Her eyes welled up reading the note, she decided to complete her stuties, and she did that by excelling in all subjects, cracked the entrance exam but, life is not always fair, Aakav left for heven and his father wanted his little daughter Chaaya, to get settled and wanted to get her married at the earliest. Binita knew that Chaaya wants to study further. Binita got to know about a Library built by Aakav, the membership cards were made free of cost, He had built this library recently for Binita. Binita assured her Father in law that she will take care of Chaaya and get her married once she will be an adult. Binita discovered new things about herself, she built beautiful bond with Chaaya. Now she wanted to do something for both of them, and built a small school with her FIL’s help. Now she manages the school, takes care of Chaaya and other children like her, who wants to study. Her FIL too left for heven leaving everything in Binita’s name. Few years down the line Chaaya became a doctor and went abroad leaving Binita with the school and her loneliness to haunt her every single day. Binita is still as humble as her name says. She is feeling like an orphan and blank again like she was, when she was 14.
It was really difficult to plot a story on volatile life in less than 600 words. I tried my best to portray a story within the word limit. Hope you like the story as much as I enjoyed writing the same.
