The Boy Who Changed the World
Another day in ‘La Petit Maison’ boarding school. Same lessons, same food and same everything.
The school feast was happening now. The Headmaster had to award the House shield and everyone was very excited, except Dink. He knew it wasn’t their House which was going to win.
But out of the blue, the Headmaster, spoke the word “BADGERS !” It was Dink’s house.
He was more excited than anybody in the whole school. But sadly, a tragedy struck. The same evening a letter arrived about his grandmother.
It read :
“ Dear Dink,
I have some sad news for you. Your grandmother who was suffering from health problems is no more. But before dying she told me to give you these spectacles. Her last words were ‘ Use it well !’
Your Well Wisher”
Dink’s heart was filled with sorrow.
“My well wisher? Who are you?” He thought to himself. He took the spectacles and packed them in his bag
The term had come to an end and it was time for everybody to go home.
After the usual goodbyes, they went to the Moonbloom station where the train was waiting for them.
The train’s engine started and they were off. It was a long journey ahead and Dink was getting bored. He took the spectacles out of the envelope. At the first look he saw that they were old, rusted and chipped from one side.
As soon as he wore them, he heard unclear, muffled voices. He got so scared, he took them off.
He wanted to know what that sound was, so he wore it again and he looked around. Again the same muffled voices. His heart began to race. He took them off again !
Once again he picked them up and wore them. This time he understood what that was……
They were THOUGHTS !!
“Ah ! These are thoughts of the person I look at !!” Dink said to himself surprised.
He thought he could use them to do some good and change the world.
“I don’t THINK it’s time to use them”
“I KNOW it’s time to use them” Dink said to himself
