Mamma Goes Shopping

29 Jan

I loved to see Mamma shop today. Shop for more bags, shop for cushion covers, shawls; basically shop for vanity. It was such a pleasure to see her less worried about the price tags. She increased the upper limit, much to my surprise!

She always managed money well, still does (true blue Gujarati!). All my life I have seen her staying away from frills. She had to think about us, our studies, stuff we needed at school, our birthdays, our Puja clothes, things around the house.

She waited for arrears and bonuses which she spent on herself. She planned and planned and planned. The best part about her was that she did everything without being selfless.

She taught me how to do it all and still paint my nails.

Her to-do list has been ticked off. She goes to the movies. She socialises. She looks more beautiful than ever.

She maintains a wish-list now. She keeps adding stuff like holiday destinations, diamonds, sarees, crockery, bags.

Last evening she ticked off red bag, purple clutch, Kashmiri stole.
