My sister finally caught a whiff of what I was trying to achieve. But, wanting to confirm more, she once again challenged me in a badminton duel and won. Losing interest, I rushed back inside without waiting for her. “You did not hear my wish”, her words fell on my deaf ears. After dinner, she took me outside for a walk. “You did not hear my wish”, she repeated again. “Sorry…what is it?” I asked without even looking at her. “I want to dr…”, she began again. “Yeah, I know. You want to drive scooty”, I completed her sentence. “No, I want to dress you in saree”, her words threw me off. Even though, I was happy to hear her words. But suspecting foul play, I rejected her idea as rubbish. Continue reading “Varsha: Sister’s surprise”

The play finally got over by 8pm. When curtains closed after the final act, Audience raised the roof with their whistles and claps. With my teacher’s approval, I dispersed from the backstage crowd to the change room, where my mother was waiting with a bag. Continue reading “Varsha: The Masterplan”

With none of my antics working, I finally surrendered. “Just promise me one thing”, I requested my mom. “Which is?”, she was eager than ever to hear me. “Under no circumstance, Gayathri must know this…not even dad”, I raised my hand for her promise. She promised that no one will know about this and kissed me in my cheek with love.

The next morning, I left her in teacher’s cabin and went to watch the rehearsal. Sometime later, she came out with some notes and signaled me to come. “Thank you madam, Varshan will come tomorrow”, she thanked my teacher and we started heading home. Continue reading “Varsha: Stage is set”

When I close my eyes, all the past events begin to show up in front of my eyes like a lucid dream. I remember those beautiful moments as a girl when I would chat with my sister Shikha didi for long, and how I would tease my brother-in-law as his young naughty sister-in-law. I also remember those moments which were not as beautiful. I remember how I felt humiliated when I went out as a girl for the first time in this world. I still remember how boys from my school teased me when they found the truth about me. I also remember when another boy touched my body parts inside my saree for the first time… and I certainly remember all the humiliating taunts by Gita.

आँखें बंद करती हूँ तो पुरानी यादो की तसवीरें जेहन में दिखने लगती है. कुछ अच्छे पल भी याद आते है कि कैसे मैं और शिखा दीदी हँसते खेलते घंटो बाते किया करती थी, कैसे जीजू के साथ मैं उनकी प्यारी साली बनकर उनको परेशान किया करती थी. पर वो पल भी याद आते है जो उतने अच्छे न थे.. आज भी अच्छे से याद है कैसे बाहर की दुनिया में लड़की बनकर मुझे शर्मिंदगी महसूस करनी पड़ी थी. आज भी याद आता है कि कैसे स्कूल के लड़के मुझे घेर कर छेड़ रहे थे और मुझ पर हँस रहे थे. याद आता है कि कैसे एक लड़के ने मेरे अंगो को मेरी साड़ी के अन्दर हाथ डालकर मुझे छुआ था और… और गीता की दी हुई उलाहना!
