Handcuffs – A symbol of unbreakable bondage at times

This post is in response to Shafali’s “Creativity Carnival“. She presented a drawing of “Handcuffs” with a rose in it as the prompt for this week.

Neeru and Manu are siblings. Manu always used to spend his time playing with his friends in front of the house in the lane. But Neeru is not allowed as she is a girl and much younger. She has to satisfy herself watching them play, sitting on the door steps.

At times, she used to get nervous and excited watching their play and run to them. But, immediately, she gets scolded and driven back to her place. Even her mother could not convince the boys to allow her to play with them even for a while.

One day, the girl found some colorful handcuffs on a street vendor’s cart in front of her house. She had previously seen them when she was on a trip with her mother to one of her relative’s house. Some children were playing the police, thief play when she was there. So, on seeing this vendor, the girl got some idea to play with her brother. She requested her mother to buy those colorful cuffs for her. The mother purchased them happily as she wanted to keep the girl happy at any cost.

The next day, when Manu was getting ready, Neeru goes nearer to him to show the handcuffs around her wrist. He got curious and began looking at it admiringly. In the meantime, she held his hand and put the other end of the cuff around his wrist which got locked immediately. Both of them thus got locked up in it and he could not go anywhere without her movement. So, he had to keep with her and play with her till he could get out from the lock. The key was hidden by the girl somewhere out of his reach. But, Manu was not at all displeased at this and enjoyed playing with her and realised how happy his sister has been feeling all through the time.
