I wish I could be six again,
oiled hair in double plaits,
Piggy banks with little money, given with a lot of love,
getting sweets next to God,
Long skirts in bright but beautiful colors,
Lacto king candy,
Doordarshan and Ramanand Sagar,
Games in the street,
no worries to make plans to cook or clean,
no hurry to catch the bus or train,
and no keenness in adjusting duppatas,
How I wish to eat Ice cream in a stick?
dripping and licking,
sitting in my granny's lap,
listening to her folktales,
interrupting incessantly,
living a life without boundaries…
Oh, I wish I could be six again!

The bridesmaid

Anya looked at her best friend, being hit with a mixed emotion of awe and envy, as her friend was getting ready for her big day.

Bedecked in the best of jewels, her friend was wearing a red saree, the color enhancing her natural beauty.

Deep down in her heart, Anya was scrutinizing for some flaws in her friend's looks, but she was failing desperately.

"Well, wow, I am going to meet the luckiest man on Earth today!" she said and hugged her friend close, planting a kiss on her forehead.

As she saw her friend walk down the aisle, love and pride filled her heart, and she uttered a word of prayer for her friend, suppressing behind the tinge of devilish envy.
