Unique visitor….

I had displayed a few of my sculptures in Phoenix city mall last year Diwali. & among the hi-fi footfall of the yo yo crowd… two were very unique…. Wearing their nine yards sari…  with loads of gold & a big kunku tila on the forehead… an atypical personalities from western Maharashtra…

I was curious & eager too to hear their comments… they were moving very comfortably through the display rows… & they stopped… their eyes fixed on the ‘Preganant pause’…

‘potushi aahe’ (she is pregnant)

‘Hmm … dola laglaay..’  (having a nap..)

& next was ‘Wealth of a smile’ … the old lady in hat with her last tooth saved…

Silence… total silence…

Their gaze fixed..

Moments passed by as if ages…

& suddenly one of them turned… ‘bwata baghu..’ ( show me your fingers…)

Uneasily I spread my hands…

‘Lai gunachi hayes’ ( you are too good..)

& the other one added… ‘byes… mazyawanich hai…’ showing her last tooth hanging by… from within her upper lip..

Her wrinkled… unevenly rough hand touched & felt me… with smile in her eyes …  bright n flashy…

Similar incidence repeated today…

This old lady in Jehangir had a cool walk through the paintings & the sculptures… looking intently at them…. & finally settling on a chair…

I loved her confidence… without any artificial posing… she was totally engrossed…

Both incidences… same… similar… loving life unconditionally…
