A Tale of 2 Water Droplets

Once upon a time in a distant land, lived 2 droplets of water…leading a contended life on a leaf…


But little did they realize of the impending danger that awaited them… One fine day…. a voice from the sky spoke up to the droplets….that they had exceeded their time on the leaf…

Listening to this voice…the water droplets shuddered…they had as a matter of fact developed an attachment to the leaf…the leaf provided all semblances of comfort to the water droplets

One water droplet immediately protested and decided to stay put. Nothing doing it muttered… The leaf is all I have… Attempts to convince this droplet to move on, simply proved futile.

Giving up finally on his colleague…The other droplet with a heavy and apprehensive heart….. decided to move on, not knowing what lay in store for it…

It meandered its way through the dense foliage… only to be picked up by a gentle stream.The stream danced its way along with gay abandon through various slopes, and merged into the OCEAN!!


It was a homecoming for the water droplet, who decided to forego the comfort of the leaf…

The water droplet which decided to cling onto the leaf….met it’s fate in a forest fire!!

Do the readers find any co relation of these water droplets to human life interactions/instances??

Views/observations invited….

A dreamer, who from a window seat of a rail bogey, enjoys staring at the infinite plain lands, re-living images captured by the eyes, amused by a dogs yawn and its trot.. moved by a cows gaze and fascinated by the trail of army ants kissing each other to glory... I am not sure if slow n steady wins the race.. there is no race if you ask me....but certainly slow and steady has its own grace...

  1. Can very well relate this to man too. He is always hesitant to venture out of his comfort zone, for the fear of the unknown. Isn’t it,? The one who is courageous can get more than he desired for!
