The pain had commenced. The muscles inside her body convulsed as a searing pain tore through her body. It felt as though every crevice of her body was crying out in agony. Small sweat buds appeared on her forehead and the twinge only enhanced further to the next level. Breathing became heavy. A few anxious faces, filled with compassion, anxiety and apprehension, hovered over her. Her eyes were too blurred to notice the aura around her though she felt it absolutely, completely in every tissue of her body. And from then onwards, everything seemed to go in slow motion. It was as if the time had stopped, although her feelings at that moment were just inexorable. Various images filled with splatter of colors splashed in front of her eyes. What followed was a pain of the highest order which left her breathless and senseless. The lady on the other end could see a gaunt red film what appeared to be a soft tissue with veins visible underneath. A thin smile pooled with excitement and apprehension appeared across the lady’s lips. And now she forced the already exhausted semiconscious girl on the bed to apply all her strength to the progression she was undergoing. As the pain soared to the limit, the girl let out one last cry of utmost pain and anguish. Suddenly what came as an upshot was a small bundle of soft pink translucent flesh covered with blood and tissue that was followed by a splash of amniotic water…..
A new life had been born. As the life struggled out, it let out an amorous cry citing everybody of its existence. The tired girl on the bed looked at her new born: The soft skin that felt like rose petals, the miniature black eyes that resembled black olives, a round curved nose that made the cheeks peek out, that pout of pink lips which just opened to leave out a small squeal, the soft black curly hair like that of a doll, the tiny hands curled into a fist showing an undeterred determination to fight the world and the tiny legs curled together in a fetal position just waiting to be freed so that they could walk in the world made by God!
This was what they called God’s creation, the girl thought. And as she smiled, her lips mouthed a prayer to the Almighty and a poignant feeling brushed her like a breeze and kissed her forehead! And then she fell back on the bed, drowned in fatigue and sinking into a deep slumber of happiness and gratification. Amen…!!
