***This is the first in a series of posts based on real life incidents that I intent to publish. Not sure if there will be any more though....I have always been better at fiction..or so I think :P***
Me: Mom,please khana khilao na..Im feeling bored to eat.
Mom: Shut up and eat. Itni badi ho gayi hai aur khana maine khilaneka?
Me: Please mom.
Mom:Shanu, eat ur khana or you are grounded.
Caw, caw caw (that isn’t me..its a crow at the window sill)
Mom: Aare beta, tu jaldi aa gaya aaj. Tere liye toh maine abhi tak roti bhi nahi banayi!
Me: Mom, please feed me na...I am feeling bored.
Mom: Shut up Shanu. I have to go feed the crow!!
Me: (Turning green wit envy) Kya faltoogiri hai....You can feed the crow but you cant feed me!
Mom: Thatz it...One more word from you young lady and you are grounded.
Me: Sulking Ohhkkkk. Eww bhindi (lady fingers) ki sabzi...I hate it. Mom please make something else for me na.
Mom: Thats it. Off to your room with your plate.
After sulking in my room for half an hour..I decide to take revenge. The crow will pay for depriving me of my mother’s love.
Me:Splashing the crow with water Fly away you stupid bird.
Crow: Caw caw caw Your mom loves me more than you!
Me: Shut up you stupid bird. My mom doesn’t love you!
Crow: Of course she does. You wanna bet?
Me: Of course
Crow: I heard you telling your mom you don’t like the vegetable she has made. Did she make a new one for you?
Me: Of course not. She doesn’t have the time for making a new sabzi.
Crow: Thats what you think! Watch and learn from the expert.
Mom enters with roti and sabzi for the crow.
Mom: Take beta..eat.
Crow: Caw caw caw caw (Translation : No I wont)
Mom:Kya hua, you don’t like the sabzi?
Crow: Caw (Translation : No)
Mom: Should I make something else for you? Allo ki sabzi khayega?
Crow: Caw caw (Translation : Yes please)
Mom: Okie..Ill make some for you!
Crow: Cee cee cee (Translation : Hee hee hee)
And there it was official..My mom loves the crow more than she loves me.
