The mother gets a saree out of the cupboard.
"Ye saree maine tumhare shaadi k liye rakhi thi. Tumhe bahot pasand thi na ye."
"haan" says the daughter who next day would leave to husband's home after marriage. The mother then opens a suitcase.
In it are her daughter's childhood things. Drawing book. Doll, and other childhood memories.
"Ye saari cheeze ?" says surprised daughter with wet eyes.
"Tumhari bachpan ki yaaden hai. Kal tumhe leke jane k liye sambhal k rahe the"...
The dialogues seemed to be eternal, the TV drama went on...I looked around and caught sister's eyes. And we smiled slyly.
"What a drama. First of all, nobody will keep so many things for years, at least our mom dad. And then our mom will just shout at us, Check things! otherwise, like every time, you will forget something and then hurry on time of leaving" my sis said laughing.
We never do any of this emotional dialogue thing, na ? Why so ? I asked.
I recollected and realized that I have never seen this at any relatives place.
Is it that it never happens only in Maharashtrian families? I asked thoughtfully. My sis took some time. Maybe, she said.
It was just one time when my aunt said, "Kiti chote hote, aata kiti mothe zalet" (How were small and now have grown up). I remember we all had a very good laugh. What a dialogue delivery man, we had teased her.
Does it happen in your home ? Do you hear emotional dialogues in your home ?
