In your blog post this week, you have to use one sentence which has a pair of opposite words.
“Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it.” – George Santayana.
Sreedevi lay on her bed watching television. An old black and white, Hindi
movie , 'Gora aur kaala' was being screened . Her mother yelled ,
'Sreedeeeevi, Sreedeeeeeevi' but it fell on deaf ears. 'Sreedevi, shall I come
up or you will come down?' screamed her mother. Sreedevi said , " Bye
honey, I will be back soon.", disconnecting the line, tore down the flight of
steps to embrace her amma (mother).
"Were you talking to your friend?" , glaring at her daughter.
"Amma, what 's for breakfast?"
Her mother is angry but chooses to stay mum.
There were two books on the side table, Orhan Pamuk 's , The White Castle
and The Black Door. She reads such boring books, thought Sreedevi.
"Here read this." Her mother handing a paper to her.
Sreedevi reads loudly while amma listens attentively.
"Do not be under the false impression that I love you from the bottom of my heart. I have never said that I will be marrying you but will marry a boy of amma's choice. 'I cannot live with you' cards that I have sent to you, please tear all of them. Only love is enough to last a life-time, all this is humbug and a mirage. I am waiting desperately for you to come back is wrongly etched in your mind, so forget me."
Sreedevi raises her eyebrows and asks ," What am I supposed to do with this ?"
"send this letter to that stupid office colleague who works with you", amma sternly.
"The days of writing letters is over amma, I will send him an email" , reasons Sreedevi.
Sreedevi starts striking on her keyboard, while amma stands behind her , like a hawk.
Do not be under the false impression that
I love you from the bottom of my heart.
I have never said that
I will be marrying you
but will marry a boy of amma's choice.
I cannot live without you
cards that I have sent to you , please tear all of them.
Only love is enough to last a life-time,
all this is humbug and a mirage.
I am desperately waiting for you to come back
Sreedevi signs off while amma asks her to send it.
Suddenly Sreedevi shouts "amma, milk is boiling in the kitchen"
"OMG! I completely forgot about it", and amma runs into the kitchen.
Sreedevi adds a line
P.S. : Read between the lines (literally) for my true feelings.
And presses the send button ......................
