astONish-makeUp, astONish-no makeUp Part-2

To see her husband in shock she immediately reached to the mirror in the corner, and she screamed just like if she has seen some ghost.

Immediately picked up her purse, locating the washroom door in the room she entered and locked it from inside. She managed to make her dress properly and cleansed her makeup maintaining not to damage her skin. She combed her hair, and leaving them open, applied some lipstick and bindi on her forehead. Soon she came out.

Her husband still in shock, waiting eagerly. All this time he was wondering what he saw just now is true or he has been seeing in last few meetings was true. Basically, all her nerves were stressed and confused. For him, it was the first time he has seen a girl with ruined makeup!

The door latch moved, and he turned his face that side. His wife a bit embarrassed was standing there. Ahhh, here comes his real wife, lehenga is still there, with minimal jewelry, and not much makeup, she looked simply beautiful. Now, this was she, they looked at each other, and in no time, they were in a fit of laughter. They laughed as whatever has happened to them was so astonishing.

Holding her hand, the husband politely asked her if she can promise her something. In amazement, she asked what promise. The husband with low tone said, ‘if you promise you will not wear all that fake makeup again, you look prettier than ever, and I love you always’. She smiled (naughty smile) and said ‘I promise but only if you don’t fail to say ‘I love you’ every day’. And they laughed!

They Lived Happily, with just small arguments and fights, any married couple may have!

All the rituals were done and now they were husband and wife. The farewell took place and later they reached the groom’s house. The new bride was welcomed and everyone was stunned to see her beauty and grace.

As they all were tired both groom and bride were sent to take some rest, and the rest of the rituals were delayed for a few hours. The bride thought to have a nap in her room. Her husband was also there and he also thought to have some rest.

Both of them slept for a little longer as they were too tired, someone knocked on the door and they woke up. When the husband looked at his wife he screamed with shock and asked her that who is SHE? One of her beautiful extended eyelashes was sticking on her cheek, the red bindi was on the right side of the forehead, the mascara and the kajal were dragged towards the ear, her jewelry was all messed up and hair was like a nest on her head.

tanTrum-lOng Or shOrt

The word tantrum reminds me of tantrums my kids threw (although they are so good kids), and very few times they still do it on trial basis and google baba helps me. Giving it a little bit more thought I remembered when I threw a tantrum. That one memory is still there because I was not very small and it taught me a lesson, that how painful throwing a tantrum becomes for the other person, who loves you.

I was in grade eight. I had long hair, actually medium long. My mom wanted me to have long hair, according to her long hair look pretty,  (even now she doesn’t like short hair). Somehow, in contrast to her wish I had to get a short haircut. I don’t remember who was behind my inspiration at that time. I just wanted a short haircut. Mom denied, as according to her my hair were not long. I insisted to have them shorter and when she doesn’t agree, I cried a bit (not like kids with high pitch 🙂 ) and all day I remained on my bed, inside my room.

In the evening with little anger and frustration, she gave up and agreed. I could see all these emotions on her face frustration, anger, fear, and defeat, and one more worry! The worry was am I going to do all this again in future as she is agreeing to it now and I will use it as a weapon.

I love my mom so much. All those emotions of her made me feel how wrong I did to her. I wanted to tell her that it is ok if I will not get the haircut, but I could not dare my guilt was there. I had realized my mistake already. I promised myself that I will not do it again with anyone in future. She took me to a salon, I had a pretty short haircut.

That was my last tantrum, I never did that again for anything.

vaGue-he was lost

He had a vague memory,

He was looking for his origin,

His plane was crashed,

Landed on an island, no man,

But only coconut trees,

A feeling of exile,

He was fighting for survival,

It seemed like he was in primitive age,

He invented the fire again,

Rubbing the two stones,

Living a life all alone,

He was making his new memory,

With all new inventions,

He was literally at a noman’s land!
