This tiny tale is a personification! A story of an otherwise inconsequential event in the busyness of day to day life. But when it is looked at from the point of view of an inanimate object, it brings out a certain intensity and meaning. In India, it is not uncommon for people to offer prayers their inanimate possessions like car, bike, house, and land etc. That said, many possessions stay with us for decades and become a part of who we are. The association of objects, first car or first watch etc. with memories is fascinating!
However, I am guilty of subjecting my possessions to apathy and carelessness. Especially the pen, the carrier of ink that help me create many of these tales. As I write this, I become more conscious above the lifeless life this these elements belong to, and hope that this tale inspires me to be more aware of my interactions with the objects around me.
