My Childhood

Konkani Original : Sanjiv Verenkar
English Translation :  Prof. Prakash Thali

When I looked at
My small daughter Sneha
pedaling on the cycle
With her tiny feet
My poor childhood
Came back to life
so vivid
There was an occasion
when i saw the grandson of landlord
going round and round
on his cycle in the backyard
I had started elbowing
My mother’ sides
While on her waist
What pains my mother
might have suffered
At that particular time?
Today, I wonder.
