As you Sow - So you Reap....

A wonderful April month which has given me a chance to showcase my writing talent for a full 26 days beginning with alphabet A and ending with Z.

Starting the topic with the first letter of the English alphabet- A

As you sow, so you reap.

No one can expect an apple tree by sowing a mango seed. Everyone has to face the consequences of his/her action.Good deeds yield good results and wicked deeds will only bring bad results.The proverb takes me down memory lane of an incident that took place in Kolkatta.

Our landlady, her handsome son, beautiful wife and three lovely children  lead a really happy life.
Into this wonderful family life came a villain in the form of a young  slum dweller who used to sit under the landlady's balcony rendering melodious songs.
I used to see the daughter-in-law standing on the balcony admiring his versatile singing talent.

I soon left  Kolkatta and a few years later came to know that the DIL and the singer had eloped.
The DIL had taken all her ornaments and money to have a good time with the singer.
After having spent everything, they did not have money to survive. She was seen by a known person in dire straits in a slum where she was staying. She had lost her beauty and was in tatters. I am sure she would be cursing the day she met the slum dweller and ruined her life.

Linking this to A-Z challenge. A is for As You Sow, So You Reap.

A is for As you sow, so you reap.
