Asli mazaa to…

Strange are the ways of life… “At times, you wish for something…and also secretly wish that it doesn’t come true”.


As we sat in their living room, I couldn’t help but wonder how well-decked and organized it was. As one of us complimented them, I added “Well! Now, as all is settled, it seems that you have been able to find some time for yourself”.

She chuckled and said “Yes! Finally, now we get time for ourselves. For each other, for thinking, for reading, for exercising, for traveling, for socializing, and for our hobbies! And you won’t believe, in those days, we wouldn’t get time to even organize the house. It was always in a complete mess”.

And then, she took a pause, shared a reciprocated smile with him, and said “But you know what! If given a chance… we would still prefer it that way”!


Well! One of my favorite lines which I saw in my childhood on a plank at one of my relative’s house is “We are sorry if you find our house messy. It is not always like this. Some days, it is even worse…” 🙂 🙂
