Dhyan was a special, little boy. His parents always told him so. He was the apple of their eye. However, the kids at the school thought differently. They called him a weirdo and competed with each other to come up with new nicknames for him. For all they knew, his name could have been Freak one day, Dumbo the next day, Weirdo on the day after and so on. But his imaginary friends never bullied him. Barny the dinosaur, Hooty the Owl, Fiery the dragon, and Buggy the rabbit didn’t care that he was different. In the company of his imaginary friends, the world seemed like a happier and kinder place.
My heart goes to all those poor kids who were ever at the receiving end of bullying. This one’s for them. I hope that the scars weren’t too deep that time couldn’t heal them.
