Aditi Lahiry (Category-Short Story) (A Diamond Is Forever | Certificate of Excellence)

While cleaning the cupboard, a
diary slipped from Neela’s hands.
She opened the diary and read the name . Seema’s name was
written on the top. As she continued , to open the diary
further , she found a huge collection of Poetry written by
her mother. As , she rushed to
show it to her mother. Her mother
felt awkward and said ” please keep it away dear”. Seema , had always hidden her inner talent , as she was married in an orthodox family. She soon realised that no one will help her to pursue her dream. Neela was unaware of her
mother’s hidden talent.
She left the diary , reluctantly that day.
Next month , on Seema’s fiftieth
Birthday,Neela gifted her mother
an anthology of poetry with the
title ” A Diamond is Forever”, the title of one of her mother’s poem.
Seema was greatly impressed by
this gesture of her daughter.
Tears of happiness rolled down her cheeks as she declared ” This is the best gift that I ever received.”
