Crazy Woman’s Fantasyland
Childhood memories are full of imagination and fantasies. One day a classmate told me that she has some precious gems and diamonds with her. If we sell them then we can get rich overnight. I got curious to see the precious stones. But the condition was, I had to go to her place to have the look. And I already told you in my previous blog that there were a lot of restrictions on the girls in our family. We were not allowed to visit our friends’ house. After a lot of debate in my mind, my curiosity overpowered the norms of the family and I went with her without informing my parents. My family was very worried when I didn’t return from school on time and my mother informed the school teacher and some of my friends gave the information that I have gone with a friend. Worst part of the incident was, there were no diamonds and gems. My friend made me April Fool. She and her sisters made fun of me. Fully disappointed when I reached home, I hide myself under the bed because I knew that its time for my thrashing. I tried to convince everyone that she dragged me to her house though I was not willing to go but all in vain. I had to bear the brunt. In the fairytale world of a child, his or her birthday is the most special day of life. Like other children, I also wanted my birthday to be celebrated with my friends at home. I was in forth standard. My little sister was born that year. I was so excited to introduce the baby to my friends. Once again without discussing with my family, I invited my friends to my birthday party. When I reached home, one of my dad’s sister was there with her kids. I totally forgot about the invitation and started playing with my cousins. When the clock stroked 4 p.m., the doorbell rang. Oh! My God, My face turned pale to see my classmates with gifts in their hands. My mom frowned at me while my aunt convinced everyone to celebrate now. On the spot my mother arranged the eatable and balloons but you can well imagine the insult which I had to bear after the party. To make me realize my mistake, my mother used to tell this incident to everyone whoever was visiting our house. I can never forget that birthday.
