seeds of conditioning….

fiction insights

The telephone rang.Gaurav, all of 6 years, lifted it. His father beckoned silently to him; “do not indicate I am there”….

The same father, who otherwise extolled him the virtues of honesty.

Gaurav experienced a conflict…

he was learning about the fickleness of life and the concepts that come into play there.

the seeds of conflict sown would stay with him for life…

    hmm, maybe the father’s idea of honesty is more practical and situational, something the 6 year old is yet to be exposed to…even Krishna extolled and implemented the practical truth…

    And, thanks for linking to my space! 🙂
