Happily Tired

Happily tired

Me:  “Baba, I am tired”, I would say to my father when I was a school girl.

He: “What is your age? And you are tired…” He would say.

Me: “Yes Baba, I am tired.”

He: “Are you happily tired?”

Me: “Yes, I think so.”

He: “Excellent. Let us read one more science chapter. You must write an essay too.”

i would then bite my own words and get into action.

He died four year ago. Just tired. Not happily tired. Clinical depression had made him very tired.


I want to live. Die. Happily tired. Inshallah.


About Deepika Sahu

I earn my living through writing stories, editing what other people write (in simple terms I am a journalist). I dream of opening a cafeteria in the mountains, owning a beach home on the shores of Bay of Bengal... but right now, they all seem like wild dreams.. A gypsy at heart --- am passionate about life, music, words, cooking for people I love, soaking in the lashing rain and just looking at the changing colours of the sky.... And I am a great fan of the Indian Railways and I long to travel in First Class AC coupe across India.....with my man
