Far away in a small village there lived a little boy with his parents. He was a happy child.His parents noticed he had little or no strength to do anything. He could not play with boys his age. His mother was afraid to let him go out and play with the boys in the neighborhood.

His mother told him stories of angels and fairies. she told him one day a fairy will come to play with him and take him to fairyland where every thing will be simple,he will never be sick.In the land of fairies,they help each other with their magic   wand.Once they touch you with it you will feel well and never get sick again.

The boy fell asleep listening to Mom’s stories. He dreamed he was in fairy land, Each time he felt sick, a fairy would touch him with her wand. He was very happy,he did not have to take any medicine,a touch of the wand would cure him. he wanted to spend his life with the fairies.

There he met a kind gentle man who listened to him,and assured him he would take him to the leader of the fairies and request her to let him stay in fairy land.

Suddenly their cat meowed loud,the boy woke up.He found himself lying in his bed.He was so disappointed he called his mother. He said,”Mom you told me I’d be able to live with the fairies,why am I still here?”

The mother was devastated ,she had no answer for her son,she looked at him and said, “Every day I ask God to make you better,it has not happened yet.I try to take your mind away from the pain you are suffering,this is why I tell you these stories,so you only think of good things,like fairies angels,love and happiness. I am so sorry to disappoint you. In life you will face disappointments,things will not always go your way. Still I want you to be happy and try to ignore the pain by thinking of good and happy things”.

Will Power by Tagore translated by Ranu

Will Power By Rabindranath Tagore

If I could be anything,that I want to be,

I would want to be a wish river.

I will make the sun rise from the south,

darkness in the evening will come from my left,

I will tell my thoughts to both sides__

some I will tell in the day,some at night.

When I roam around in my village wharf

I will also sing in the fields far off

I know the villagers __ who come for a bath,.

they swim with their cattle to the other path.

The people from afar, have a different look__

I know not their name, they have that weird look.

The shiny water with small fragments of light___

the striking waves dancing like fairies clapping and laughing with delight.

At the bottom step of the wharf

there is a different scenery,

strangers are sitting looking quite scary,

what they are doing I cannot worry,

their movement makes me cringe with fright.

The villagers know only little of me,

the rest is lost,even I don’t know me.

There are green fields on one side,

the other side is sandy and sunny,I don’t see how I can go for a ride.

Daytime will be noisy and full of life,the night will be quiet and scary__

If I look at the riverbank,it will make me tremble and weary.
