A CHILD’S WISH

By Neel Anil Panicker

Little Ananya  looked at the shimmering array of stars in the azure skies above, and then, with folded hands  and closed eyes, made a wish, “Oh, dear God, please make me an alien with unearthly powers”.

Suddenly, a voice from above, a kindly one, somewhat akin to her grandfather’s erupted from above, “Young lady, your wish is granted and now tell what magical  powers do you seek?”

The five year old looked up the skies and said, her soft voice an earnest plea, ” I want to be an alien who holds  a magical wand that when I sway it all over the Earth wipes out all diseases from the Earth.”
