There is this girl in my batch who is supposed to be this great palmist.So a few days back, with the help of someone's strand of hair and someone else's gold ring, she told me the following grave facts about my future.
a)I shall marry in 2011.
b)It shall be an arrange-cum-love marriage.
c)I shall have only one child.MOst probably a boy,but she could not be sure.
P.S. her area of expertise is obvious.
Apart from that, being the palmist that she is, she asked me give her my left hand...she peered at it for along time. And said:
"You are...err....umm..you know..quite stubborn."
Me(agast): arre!!! no, no! I am the last person on this planet who is stubborn.
Palmist Friend:nahiiii..arre baba..haath mein yehi likha hai!
Me:no, but I am nt stubborn.
Class mates standing by: arre yaar..maybe you are..like think, maybe she is right.
me: noooooo, I am NOT stubborn.
I am not stubborn .
I am not stubborn.
I am not stubborn.
Girls standing around me were smiling....
Not stubborn, eh???
Anyways.I met my very first nanny(yeah yeah, I am very angrez types!).I did not know that Geeta was coming and yet as soon as i opened the door i recognised her from 15-16yrs ago ina jiffy!
There was something just so familiar about her.Her visit brought back to me the millions of hours I had spent with her.
1. I used to hate peas. So when Ma used to make rice+peas, she used to take my plate and remove the peas.One by one.Each one of them . I would not eat rice till she removed each of them.
2. Geeta used to comb my hair.The worst that could happen to your hair at age 5 was lice!!!So she gave me the mantra for lice free hair.
Just remember one thing, bitiya,anything that is good for your hair is good for the lice.Specially oil.
I think after that I must have used hair oil about 2-3 times..the last time being atleast 10 years ago.
3. She told me that honey bees grow up to become tigers.
4.She told me that if you get bitten by a honey bee even once in your childhood, when you grow up, you become half woman-half tiger.
5.She told me that if , even by mistake, I ever happened to even tatse Rin sabun I will froth at my mouth and be dead within 2 minutes flat.
Till date I prefer buying paanch sau pachpan sabun than RIN.
6.She taught me to make tomato chutney.
7.One fine day, when I was a little bigger, a woman came over.When I asked who she was she sadi she was 'mamiji'.hmmm...she looked a bit uncool but well....mami jee she was and I promptly bent down to touch her feet.Happily she mutterd a 'khush raho beta".
I later found out that she was Geeta's mami.
She used to put me to sleep sometimes.I would sit in her lap, bury my face in her neck and she would start off with some silly brainless story...:)
anyway....now Iam feeling a bit sleepy myself....
I think I will sleep now...
P.S.I am NOT stubborn
