Thoda Hai Thode ki Zaroorat Hai…Sep2, 2010

Dear Ma

Aaj hum apne naye ghar mein shift huye. Main door se andar aate hi baain or ek closet hai-jackets aur joote rakhne ke liye. Closet mein shelf hai, rod hai aur joote hain. Bas joote ka rack nahin hai…khareedna hai…

Uski baain or ek bathroom hai. Bathroom mein aaina hai, bathtub hai, saabun hai…bas saabundaani nahin hai…khareedni hai…

Saamne living room mein sofa hai, kursi hai, dining aur study table dono hi hain. Ek khidki hai par hawa nahin hai kyonki khidki band hai…hawa bhi khareed lenge…shayad aur kuch saalon mein…

Living Room se juda hua ek bedroom bhi hai. Bedroom mein almaari hai, bed hai, dresser hai aur ek aur khidki hai. Band hai par koi baat nahin. Kehte hain thand mein band khidki hi achhi hoti hai. Isliye bedroom mein….sab kuch hai…

Ghar chhota-sa hai. Ghar mein main hoon, Pankaj hai aur ghar achha hai. Bas ghar ke baahar Mercedes nahin hai…khareedni hai…

Arre haan…kitchen ke baare mein bataana to bhool hi gai. Ghar mein enter karte hi daain or kitchen hai. Kitchen mein gas hai, oven hai, daalein hain, masaalein hain aur taiyaar hua garam khana bhi hai…bas us khaane mein…maa ka pyaar nahin hai…

Aapki bahut yaad aa rahi thi. Isliye ye chitthi likhi. Papa se kehna chinta naa Karen. Der-saver hum sab kuch khareed hi lenge. Is waqt hum khush hain aur jaise Papa kehte hain ki khushiyaan kabhi khareedi nahin jaateen…

Miss You both

Love

Roopal and Pankaj

P.S. ย I wrote this letter for my mom and dad during my stay in Toronto, Canada. I had just moved to a new apartment with my husband during his MBA days…new country, new place and new walls just made me a bit nostalgic…
