What's going on ?

                                      
The maddening traffic,
Non-sense chatter over the FM... 
Non-stop deluge of emails…
Endless meetings…
Mindless presentations …
Meaningless social networking …
Die-hard liars …
Desperate but illegitimate lovers …
Suicidal co-worker …
Stressed out super mom …
Senseless client calls …
Soul stinking ass lickers …
Sweat shops and slave drivers …


There was only so much I could take during the course of a day at work.
Mentally exhausted, I decided to call it a day.
Little did I realize, all day I had left my mobile phone in the car.

38 missed calls in a span of 10 minutes … god … I wondered what was going on …

How can I be so forgetful? My bad, I should not be so careless... 
I dialled my sister’s mobile number to return the call.
My heart was beating fast … my palms were sweating. 

Nandini my seven year old niece instantly picked up the call.
‘What’s going on ? I called you so many times…’ she says with desperation in her voice.  

Sorry sweetheart … was busy in meetings… what happened ?

Mmm... when you were busy in your meetings,

I lost my first milk teeth.
I called you and you did not answer.
So I went and buried it in the park under the gulmohar tree.  
You think tooth fairy will send me a gift ?   


She certainly will, my darling …
And thus saying, I went online on flipkart and ordered the Doll house …

  11. Beautiful Jayanti :) this is my first trip to your blog, and looks like I am going to be there for a while...

    a suggestion - can you please do away with comment form in a separate page, it's easier to post below the post.
