To my Dad….
Really sorry for making it too late.. laziness you know.. 😛
That very day, I read one of my friend’s status on Facebook ,”Santas really don’t exist.Its either your parents or your elder brother/sister.” No doubt, he was 100% right, but so what if they are our parents, we just care about the gifts and not who it was and where he came from…
I too got one of my costliest, precious and best gift that evening…from my dad, my new cell phone Nokia X6, worth 14,550 bucks!!
I can’t believe, it all happened so damn easily.
Friday,24th December,it as 8’o clock and I was still on bed. Dad comes,” Which cell phone do you want?”. Me totally shocked, how all of a sudden , right in the morning before I could open my eyes, was it possible.It took a nanosecond to check if I was dreaming. And Dad was standing right next to my bed and Mom along with him. I said, ” Nokia N8″. Yeah, I know it’s too costly, but I knew they were just teasing me and would never get me a cell phone other than.. kiddie.. Micromax !! So, I didn’t mind saying NokiaN8. Then Dad, moving out of my room to the living room,'” check out its price on net and let me know. “I still couldn’t believe whatever was happening, I checked the price on net immediately and told him,” 25,000 bucks”.
“Check out another.”
“There is Nokia c6,”18,ooo, and there are many Dad, I need to go to the showroom and check out the other models.”
I knew its all gonna go in vain.. this searching and stuff, but still I was loving it, maybe because I still had some hope or maybe we were talking about my urgently needed gadget.
“They are too costly, I wont give you anything other than Micromax. Whats wrong about it? It has same features and is cheap as well.”
Here we go, All hopes trashed, I jumped back to my bed, put myself inside the blanket and shouted,”Nothing other than Nokia, and Micromax.. N.E.V.E.R.”
“Then forget it, If you are stubborn, so am I, Micromax, or else buy whatever you want when you will earn for yourself.”
😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦
In the evening, at 3.40 p.m ,Dad hadn’t returned yet from shopping, me worried, called him.” Where are you?”
“We are in The Mobile Store, checking out cell phones for you, which one did you say you wanted?”
I didn’t know what to speak,” a…Nokia c6-01″
The salesman prompted behind him,” This model hasn’t come to India yet and it wont be launched here.”
Dad,”Do one thing I gotta leave tomorrow, so you come with your mom and get the cell.”
😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Now, I was sure I am going to get a cell phone. Dad reached home at six in the evening.
Me,”Dad, I want to buy it in your presence, with you.”
“Okay then, get ready let’s get you a cell phone, I have to do the packing also.”
Oh My God, I can’t express how I was feeling that very moment, as if my whole started malfunctioning. high pulse rate, happiness, smile that I couldn’t hide..,everything around me was appearing extremely beautiful ..blah blah….I am gonna get my cell phone..
Reached Nokia Priority Dealer, checked out the cell phone and finally made the payment for Nokia X6.
Dad,”If you lose it or misuse, forget the cell forever, you know why things are taken away from you, you don’t care about them properly.”
“Dad, I promise you wont get a single chance to scold me for this cellphone.”
Now I had my cell phone but the thoughts were exactly opposite of the thoughts that I had before owning it.
Why did he get me such a costly cel phone?
Will I be able to take care of it properly?
I am so bad,my dad had to give up for me.Obviously he loves me so much that he didn’t mind giving it,but me,I don’t love him as much as he does, that’s why I stuck to Nokia…
All these emotions brought tears in my eyes, which I really had to hide…I didnt want the cell phone any more….I loved my dad, It was so hard to enjoy the moment of getting what you wanted…It was more of …what I had realised.
Thanks Dad..I know will never-never be able to pay back you for whatever you have done, you do and will do…but I love.. ❤ ❤
EEEWWWW… too emotional…. 😛
