I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 1st-7th September 2013.
A bag/purse is not a mere decorative item or a fashion accessory carried by the ladies but is an important and an integral part of a women's wardrobe.It is a storehouse of all essentials items required for the smoothing functioning of the day. It should contain the following items
WET / DRY TISSUES /HANDKERCHIEF
Wet and dry tissues are most needed in hot and humid weather to dab the face to remove the excess oil and sweat. During rains handkerchief or a small napkin is needed.
COMB/HAIR BRUSH AND MIRROR
A quick brush of the hair in a mirror alters the appearance to give a neat look.
CASH/CREDIT CARDS/CHEQUE BOOK
Credit cards for payment of petrol bills , restaurants bill etc and cash to pay for taxi and auto rickshaws. Unsigned cheque book is optional.
MOBILE-PHONE AND CHARGER
Along with the mobile-phone , the charger too is necessary .
A PEN and AN ENVELOPE
Most clients in banks hunt for people from whom they can borrow a pen to fill the slips. One can solve crosswords puzzles , Sudoku etc.
In the envelope , keep a contact address and contact number in case of an emergency (God forbid any untoward incident)
A SMALL CLOTH BAG
On the spur of the moment , you decide to buy some bakery items/fruits etc.
COMPACT POWDER/EYE-LINER/KOHL PENCIL/LIPSTICK/LIP GLOSS
These are necessary in case of impromptu outings or parties.
MEDICINES/ A CHOCOLATE BAR
Painkillers or any other medicines required . My friend suffers from low B.P., keeps a chocolate bar handy.
PEPPER CAN SPRAY
I read in the newspapers that many females are including this as a necessary item in the wake of the brutal incidents. I would say that one never needs to use this. The stockists of this item have recorded an increase in their sales.
I have exceeded the number of items by two. (maaf karna)
While travelling in an autorikshaw or a cab keep the purse on your lap. This way one will not forget it in the vehicle.
Readers , what items do you carry in your bag/purse?
