Write a story in 100-150  (+/- 25 ) words on the picture prompt given. Challenge hosted by Priceless Joy

Time just flies isn’t it? The day is etched so vividly in my memory. The first time I brought my son here when he was just a toddler of two. These steps and I together taught him to count numbers. We would jump on to each step and call out the number. My son was so fascinated and happy to be here and learn his numbers, that it became an everyday ritual for us. Addition, subtraction and different concepts, we learnt it all together! He fell in love with numbers and became adept at it. When he started school he was far ahead of the other boys and girls of his class. We continued this ritual without fail during his holidays.

Today many seasons later, he reached the pinnacle of his ascent, when he received the Fields Medal ( equivalent to Nobel) , for his outstanding contribution in the field of Mathematics. Standing here today, I am a proud father reminiscing nostalgic moments!

      Haha, thanks Sangbad. But why not a father?? Why should it always be the mother who takes time out for her children? I know many father’s today who take active interest in their child’s welfare. A big 👍 to all such fathers!!

        Times are changing now. Both the parents take equal responsibility in bringing up their children . It’s just that I put a Dad in this story. In the next one maybe the mom will be in focus!😊

    What a beautiful story Radhika! I enjoyed reading it thoroughly. You have a knack for this I tell you:) ❤️I remember my mom teaching the same numbers as we walked to the bus-stop on school mornings and yes, it made sure I never forget those multiplication tables😊

      That’s wonderful Divya. I have always observed that when learning is made interesting, the concepts all make a permanent mark in the minds of children.
      Thank you dear ☺️

    I agree with Swalia : you are very good at weaving stories.
    In school I used to dread Math subject as the teachers were strict and rude. My son loves this subject . i feel good now.

      Thanks so much Kalpana. As a student I too was not very good at math. I guess if we are lucky enough to get a good teacher, we end up falling in love with the subject. Glad that your son enjoys math.
      Will definitely check out your post! Thanks a lot for stopping by 😊

    Wonderful story! He nurtured his son to love numbers and he therefore became a genius at it! There was a woman that recently passed away from cancer that had received the Field Award. I think it was the Field Award.

    What a lovely story, Radhika. It was the end that grabbed my attention. Like you have explained it need not be the mother always who has to take that ‘extra’ effort for their children. A winning tale, Radhika 🙂
