A tale from yore

A mythological tale,

It may be from days of yore,

But oh my! What relevance it holds even in today’s time,

A story of grit, determination and perseverance,

Come one! Come all!

Hear me retell a tale from yore,

Of a little boy not more than five,

His provoking step-mother,

Ensured he was refused a seat on his darling father’s lap,

Dejected he was at first,

But didn’t let that get better of him.

With single minded dedication,

Started he a rigorous penance in the hope of sitting on his father’s lap,

Pleased with his prayers,

God appeared in front of him,

And not only was he granted a place on his father’s lap,

He ruled their kingdom for many, many years to come,

Was also bestowed a place for eternity,

In the skies,

As the Pole Star for everyone to look upto,

And that’s the story of Dhruva,

An embodiment of grit, determination and perseverance.

Last year we had to write a piece involving Woman as a theme, so in essence we had to write a piece involving Man as a theme. For rules please refer here. You may read about Dhruva here. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
