A Tale of 2 Girls

Updated on January 7, 2012

I had written a hub on "How can I find my Look-a-like?" Mentioned ways to go about finding our look-a-like.

Link pasted below.

It is said that every person born on this planet has a look-a-like. How many have you been able to find yours?

This is a tale of 2 girls who look a liked, found each other and created a revolution.


This is a tale of 2 girls

Born on the same day and time to two different parents

On two different poles of the planet

One girl born in a seven star hospital of an urban city

The second girl born in a rural area

Both the parents are equally delighted.

The girls are named Kanak (means Gold)

Both are precious of their parent's eyes

Brought up by their parents in their own special way

Girls grow up and destiny makes them meet

First girl is clad in the best of attire and adorned with gold as her name suggests

Second girl is in rags

Both girls have the innocence on their faces and their eyes sparkle like gold

When they meet

They look at each other with curiosity

They were mirror images of each other

But with different attires

They smile and connect instantly.

For fun sake they exchange their attire

Little did they know that their worlds would become apart by this?

First girl, dressed in rags goes to the village

Second girl, dressed in the finest of attire goes to the city.

Both love the new life and try to bring about a change in their surroundings.

Girl in rags brings modernization to the rural area

The society goes through industrialization, urbanization and other social changes

Girl in riches brings solidarity and contentment to the city

The society unites on various reforms and policies.

Revolution is brought about!

Girls are overjoyed and now miss their past.

They tell the truth to the elders

And are transported back to their original surroundings.

Ever ponder, when we meet our look-a-like?

What change will we bring around?

      A wonderful story-poem! I enjoyed reading this masterpiece of yours! Some people close to me said that there are 7 people that look almost the same in this world. I have seen many people, particularly celebrities, who looked alike, for example J.F Kennedy and Bill Clinton looked similiar - when I was a child, I saw J.F.K and I thought that he was young Bill Clinton! A fetching hub! Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Beautiful, Awesome & Interesting. Voted up and shared on Facebook

      Hi Geetika,

      As there are 2 sides to a coin. We, as humans are always confused between right and wrong. And you have made your point above beautifully.

      thank you for your insight and you stopping by!

      great story and message.

      I feel that we all have a twin within us, one which wants everything logical and systematic and the other which wants to be innovative and bring about a change.We constantly have a battle in our mind between the two. Sometimes its the logical twin which wins and sometimes its the dreamer!

      Ruchira ~ WONDERFUL! YES! reminded me of a number of stories like "The Prince and The Pauper," the movie "Trading Places" and the many stories when Look-A-Likes change positions in life, but told in your own original way. Enjoyed. Hugs, Debby

      ..well I admire your probing mind, keen intellect and your acute sensitivity which is always found in your writing .......and amazes me because are you so truly beautiful in your own way - as I would imagine we all are - and that is why the Hub makes the world a smaller place to share our thoughts, our feelings, our differences and our similarities - lake erie time ontario canada 2:39am and sending you my warmest wishes and good energy too!

      Hi Manoj,

      Since it takes 2 to Tango. I thought that IF these two meet up and IF they are of different surroundings they could bring about a change. I do realize it is fiction but, their is no harm in dreaming :)

      Thanks for your support and beautiful words. I must admit when I published this hub; I was in two minds IF people would even support this idea...

      Thank you, my friend!!

      Wow Ruchira, Have i got a story to tell you. I was on my way to work, ( nurses uniform on ) Stopped to pay at a toll bridge, the attendant said, " Hello Jane, on your way to work, i guess? " I told her that i wasn't Jane, she acted like she was amazed. She told me that Jane was a nurse who crossed the bridge regularly. We both worked in the same city only at different hospitals. I went to her hospital and saw her. I was amazed also. We looked exactly alike, same hair color, same size. To this day, i wonder about her, who her Father was?, of course i wouldn't dare ask.........

      Ruchira,lovely write up. Some people have mistaken me for my look alike, who probably lived not very far away from my place, while I was in Indore,(M.P). This guy was probably a well known doctor.

      I think what you say and from what other people too have said, look alikes exist in this world.

      Voted up and interesting.

      i once met a guy a guy in the market who looked almost like me and when i walked over to say this t0 him found he was dead drunk.when i despite his drunkenness told him he looked just like me he turned back and started very violently abusing me for stealing his face.

      Ruchira, You are an excellent writer and this poem should rank among the best for the sheer clarity of thought, ideas and ideals and poetic beauty. You have told a didactic story in a simple way. The message is clear and gets across well. I salute you for it and for your talent. Keep up the good work. We are listening.

      With warm wishes,


      P.S:- I've pressed all the buttons except funny and posting it to my facebook page.
