Always wanted...

A parrot! A dazzling green and red parrot. I always wanted to be a parrot when I was 3. I just don't want to own it, but to be a parrot. Green and red being my favourite colours and statement from my mother that you could be anything you want, rooted this dream even harder. But pretty soon I released, it's not only impossible but implausible.

Soon I changed my ideology, got sensitive, observed people around and took a firm decision of becoming a home maker. Cause they can nap in the afternoon. And I don't have to rush anywhere, like my mother who is a working lady. I was so determined that I started to train myself from the very next day and perceived that a home maker has to cook and clean, wake and wash, bring and build, make and shake, give and take; and practice all the verbs in our grammar. (So do working but my mom always get some help, my granny never.) As a result I ascended on my journey to search for another wanted to be, where I met a lady doctor.





O yes! The glowing office, with those fancy  things, a white coat and stethoscope, through which I can clearly hear my heart beat all day long. Un-dauntingly, this is what I always wanted to be for next 10 minutes until she ordered nurse to suck blood out of my nerves. This time I was very close to choose my profession, but destiny was conspiring something else for me. 



Yes, now I'm in a age, where, "what you wanted to be?" should be answered in a profession. And my answers keep refashioning. I always wanted to be an air force fighter pilot (dropped because girls were not in combat roles in Indian air-force), a lawyer(they talk a-lot and I can talk a-lottt), a psychologist(very understanding people, I could have made a great psychologist) and a news anchor(for their fancy cum professional clothes). But someday this madness need to stop and my ambitions need to halt. So I asked, searched and re-searched and decided to be the first lady president of Republic India.

I don't want to blame anyone for my crushed dream, but yes Mrs. Patil is the culprit. May someday she want something badly and I will snatch it away from her. With a broken heart and PCM as my high school subjects I became a software engineer. But even today I'm looking for an answer to complete "I always wanted to be.....???" may be just "HAPPY" :)

बचपन की पोटरी: ईद मुबारक़ अंकल...!

बात उन दिनों की है जब मैं शायद 8 या 10 साल की थी | मेरा घर एक छोटे से शहर के बड़े से मोहल्ले में था | वहाँ दिवाली होली ईद क्रिसमस सिर्फ एक मज़हब के लोग नहीं पूरा मोहल्ला साथ में मनाता था । हर कोई वहाँ मुँह बोले रिश्तों में बंधा था | ज्यादातर मोहल्ले वाले हमारे अंकल आंटी नहीं बल्कि दादा दादी चाचा चाची होते थे | वैसे मुझे सारा मोहल्ला जनता था पर सामने वाले घर से मुझे और मेरे भाई को कुछ ज्यादा लगाव था। अंकल आंटी (क्यूंकि वो मम्मी पापा से बहुत बड़े थे इसलिए चाचा चाची नहीं बोल सकते थे ) और उनके 5 बच्चे।  3 लड़के जिनसे भाई की खूब बनती और 2 लड़कियाँ जिनसे मेरी खूब बनती | वो हर होली  हमारे यहाँ गुजिया खाने आते और हम हर ईद उनके यहाँ सेवइयां।

सब एकदम सही और खुशनुमां था सिर्फ एक चीज़ के | वो ये के मुझे अंकल से बहुत डर लगता था। इतना के अगर में घर से बहार निकलूं और अंकल अपने दवाज़े पर खड़े हों तो मैं उलटे पैर घर में चुप चाप वापस चली जाती थी। छत से छुप छुप कर देखती और जब अंकल वहां नहीं होते तभी बाहर जाती, फिर चाहे लंगड़ी में मुझे अपनी 2-3 चाल ही क्यों ना छोड़नी पड़े। इस बेवज़ह से डर की वज़ह तो मुझे आज तक नही…
