I don’t want a sis (a short story)

Piyush ,a small boy.He is of only 10.Its ICU,he stands in front of his father.Her mom is admitted in the bed .Its a critical delivery case.All the family members are tensed a bit .Piyush don’t know whats actually going on;but can understand something goes wrong by seeing  the tension in his father’s eyes, and hearing the shouts of her mom.

Suddenly he asks his father,” papa what has happened ??Is mom okay?”                               Father:” Don’t worry my son,she will be fine soon.Actually she is suffering from pain because a new guest is coming to our home.Just pray God .”

Piyush :”Then the new guest will be a girl or boy?? ”                                                                     Father :”Why my son!!!Is there any problem with that??will the guest be he or she?? ”       Piyush :”I don’t need a sister,papa. Oh! God i don’t want a sis.”

His father becomes wonder for a moment ,why such things comes to his mind!! Piyush grandmother also stands beside him and tell his father ,”See he also knows son will be better than daughter,he is my grandson only (giving a smile towards piyush) .Right Piyush?”                                                                                                                                       His father became angry at his grandmother and tells,” Why you are telling such rubbish in front of him,he is a child only.Don’t make him learn these unnecessary stuffs”

Father : “Piyush,listen all are equal. No one is better or worse.You should be happy whether the baby is girl or boy.Okay!”

Piyush, “No papa .I don’t have any problem with that .I don’t want a sis,because….”

Father:” Because….??”

Piyush: “I don’t need a sis ,not because daughter are better than son (as grandma tells),but because i can’t see my dear sis tolerating such great pain like today mom is suffering.Because one day she will be a mom and shouting in the ICU with pain.And at that time again you all will be tensed”

All becomes stunt to hear such answers and his father hugs him tightly being proud of him.Doctor comes just then and congratulates for the new daughter.

Piyush: “No problem,papa.I didn’t need her as i can’t see her in pain,but i love my dear sis enough that she can get all her needs.”

‘Though piyush tells all those things with an immature mind ,but those few golden words and thoughts he tells with an innocence says a lot….feel it’
