In a CCD with my Daughter
by Prafulla Sahu
Bookmark and Share
 

I used to feed my daughter
From a country makeshift food stall,
While paying the bill
I boasted of the tinkling coins.
Today
My daughter took me to a  cafe
Paid a currency note of high Deno for a sip
of cold coffee.
 
I felt
Refreshingly cool….
boasting, receding
In the ebb of time.
She  never forgot Dhenkanal Vada*
And I won’t forget the coffee
As it descended not from a son’s purse.

I felt a bit sorry for wasteful extravaganza,
But how long a father will stick to economics
To steal children’s smiles
From the Café Coffee Day of life?

I feel refreshingly well off
A cup of coffee has enough of life.


*Dhenkanal Vada - Vada a tiffin item, very famous in Dhenkanal of Odisha.
CCD -  Café Coffee Day
