...MATTER OF PRIDE, Continued



Even though he was feeling very angry at Chintoo, he said in a gentle voice. “What are you doing here, Chintoo?” 

Chintoo was tongue-tied, “Dad, …I ..I was...” he stammered. 

“No ….that mouse.,” Chintoo again stammered. 

Now he would surely get a scolding, he feared. But surprisingly, his father did not scold him. 

Instead he smiled and took him inside his room. Everything was disorganized in the room. 

Chintoo’s father sat down on a sofa. Than he said to Chintoo, “It is not good to spy on someone.” 

“I am sorry, papa. I would repeat this mistake again. But please tell me, how did the mouse disappear?” asked Chintoo. 

Now he had become bold at his father’s gentle treatment towards him. 

“Promise that you would not tell this to anyone?” his father laid the condition. 

“I promise, papa,” Chintoo replied with innocence, “Do you know why a thing appears?” his father asked and thereafter, replied too himself, “It appears when light bounces off an object and reaches our eyes. If light could pass through an object we would be unable to see it. It becomes invisible.” 

“It means that will disappear,” Chintoo’s mouth opened with astonishment. 

“Yes, that is how the mouse got disappeared. I applied a cream on its body due to which it had become invisible,” his father said. 

“You have made a wonderful thing. Now I can become invisible and frighten mummy,” said Chintoo. 

“No son, remember, you have promised that you would not disclose this secret to anyone,” his father reminded him. 

“No son, remember, you have promised that you would not disclose this secret to anyone,” his father reminded him. “I have made it for some special purpose.” 

“Special purpose? Have you made the cream to use it against the enemies?” asked Chintoo.

“Yes son, you have become very wise. Now go and do your work,” said Chintoo’s father.

“But father, I want to apply the cream just for once. I promise that I would not go anywhere,” Chintoo almost begged out of patience.

“No, you should not even think of it,” replied Chintoo’s Father. His voice grew hard.

“But why papa?” asked Chintoo.

“Because it is very poisonous, anyone who uses it even once would have skin burnt. He may even die,” said Colonel Aman.

“Then it is very harmful. You should throw it away,” Chintoo said with fear.

“No son, I have to fulfill a mission. This is the product of years of hard work. I have to use it against the enemies of mankind,” said the colonel selflessly with a clear ambition in his voice.

“And those who are brave are not afraid of dying for their country,” his father tried to make him understand the importance of something above materialism.

Chintoo’s eyes opened up.

‘You were right, dad. It as a matter of pride to sacrifice for your country,’ thought Chintoo.

Chintoo’s face glowed with pride. ‘If my dad could sacrifice himself for the country, at least I can bear the pain of separation,’ he though and his tears dissolved in the glow of his face.
