Waiting...



"God, please help me, my parents don't understand me;give them some wisdom",the innocent girl prayed and hoped soon things will change. 

That never really happened; she had to struggle to be  as they wanted her,and married the man of their choice. 

She hoped things will soon change;her husband would value her feelings rather than being concerned only with himself. 

Years passed by and things hardly changed. 

Stars had not  changed their positions, at the time of her birth, for no reason;she was destined to be named, 'Prateeksha'.


 

P.S : 'Prateeksha' in Sanskrit means waiting.
