SUMMARY OF THE LESSON
Saeeda's mother had been unwell for a long time. She complained of coagh, fever and joint pains. She was treated by so many physicians. But she could not get over her sickness. One problem was followed by another. She was kept in a small room with door and windows closed. She could not get cool fresh air and warm sunshine.
Her condition became critical. She was too poor to consult a specialist. But life, afterall, is more precious than money. She sold off her ornaments to pay the doctor's fees. He prescribed some medicines. But he advised the old lady to shift to a bigger room, keep her doors and windows open, and spend an hour every morning in the courtyard. She needed sunshine and fresh air as much as medicines. She acted on the doctor's advice.
It so happened that the clouds hid the sun in the sky. It happened so for two more days. Saeeda, the little girl, was worried. In her secret language she talked to the rays of the sun to help her sick mother with warmth and brightness. Her prayer was granted.
Next day the sun rays got ready to go down to the earth. But their father, the Sun, asked them to cancel their journey. The clouds were thick, dark and dirty. But the rays staged a revolt. They made their way through the thick clouds. And reached the old lady's bed. She felt the warm sun on her body after a long time. She breathed in fresh air. She felt fresh, strong and well. She recovered fully in a few days.
