Her Reminiscence

She woke up, startled. Dreaming of rotting teeth is not a good sign, it means bad luck, or death of a loved one. Soon enough she got a call, informing her that her grandmother had passed away and she was to perform the last rites.
Loraine came back at eight in the morning, tired with puffed eyes. She washed her face, ate her breakfast and waited. Her client was going to come soon.

Very few dream interpreters exist in this world, she was lucky enough to be one of them. After discovering her gift, she went to India and studied the dream scriptures. She was gifted to read dreams and pass on the messages to people who needed it. This was the purpose of her life and she had devoted her life to this power.

Andrew came on time, a mask of tension etched on his face. He recalled his dream where he saw himself dining with his family in a huge beautiful glass house, and then abruptly he woke up feeling very uneasy. Loraine heard it patiently and interpreted it. Glass houses mean that reputation is threatened, the family was going to have a fall in reputation soon. He asked her for a solution, but she had no choice. Dream interpreters are born only to pass on the message, not give answers to those messages.

After he left, Loraine was left to ponder on her life. For years she has been living in New York, using her gift to fulfill her purpose. Her grandmother had passed on the gift to her and trained her to use it well. Her first lesson was the story her grandmother had told her.

Part 2 coming soon.

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
