A poem about the wisdom of knowing when to hold on and when to let go!
A tiny rill was once born
On the cliff of a mountain high
Which towered up with craggy peaks
And reached up to the sky
The rill began its descent downward
As it was meant to do
And as it trudged its rocky path
Lo behold, it grew and grew
First a rill and then a brook
Soon it became a stream
It raced away from where it was born
All to chase a dream
The mountain watched it grow apace
Its crags suffering many a mighty blow
It stopped the clouds with its tall peaks
So the stream with the rain could grow
At last the stream reached the plain
Now a river with a path to make
The mountain knew it would never be back
Its heart beginning to break
The river now had a single goal
To find the sea wide and blue
Far behind, the mountain watched
All its dreams come true
The river found its sea at last
And was lost in its embrace
‘Go my child “, smiled the mountain green ‘May you be blest with God`s grace
“No longer can I keep pace with you. You have grown long and wide From afar though I rejoice in you Your very being is my pride”
I asked the mountain, “ Does it hurt To let your little rill go?”
“Children have to find themselves”, it smiled
Its tears beginning to flow
“Tis but the natural order of things And it will always be so
WISDOM LIES NOT IN HOLDING ON BUT KNOWING WHEN TO LET GO.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
