    That wooden table

    When they newly got married, the massive wooden charming table also entered to that all new family with the charming bride. They both got familiar to the new environment with each passing day and unknowingly became an inseparable organ.from gossip to gathering, from amusement to celebrations,from entertainment to emotional ventilation,witnessed all pros and cons even all highs and lows. All that long waiting for some one. Felt the longing of hungry stomach and the craving heart.
    With the sloughing span of time that table became the most favorite place for the children. From homework to assignments everything seems more feasible over the colossal heart of that table and unknowingly that table became the treasurer of infinite memories etched over it's masculine chest and tortuous veins. From sharing foods to sharing emotions ,from kicking off an argument to finding solutions.lt was the only active witness of everything.Consequently that table became the part and parcel of that family.

    Now situation being changed with the strong swirling waves of time.Straightaway everything changed, from changing interior to changing mindset .Just like it is the Supreme reality that one can't run away from that.which is imperative to sustain the life. Now the table became old and lost its charm by appearance only still trying to serve the same as before to keep pace with the changing time and changing people. Eventually, the family decided to change that old furniture as time has elapsed. However, the wife denied as it was the only memory of her parents which was still with her as she grew old and has seen all ups and downs .Where her children wanted for a new sophisticated one. With that all bafflement it was finally decided to replace only the wooden plate by a gleaming glass panel. It was suitable for all. Now the charming black glass replaced that wooden plate. But, the pillars kept unchanged thinking of its durability and reliability to hold that delicate glass panel.

    Now, the innercore of that wooden pillar smiling inside and thinking that, even if the time has changed everything with the growing age ,still I haven't changed my soul towards my owing responsibilities ,just like people get retired officially after completion of the stipulated time period.Alas!they kept abandoned by everyone. Still, their dedication remains unchanged .cause, they are irreplaceable and their presence is irrefutable never and ever!
