Beautiful Books Strengthen Bonds


                                               
Panki was wiping away her tears continuously.
“Onion-eyed today?” inquired the librarian.
“Nothing mam, it’s just Holly’s undying love for her Dead husband Gerry.”
“Ah, are you reading P.S. I love You? Beautiful book.”
                --------------------------
Suddenly, she feels a woman in WHITE observing her.
"Mom?" And gives her a tight hug.

  2. Interesting take. Makes me wonder if it is her mom or perhaps a friendly ghost or angel watching over her as she weeps. ♥

    1. Kathy@ hmm...It's old tradition in India that widowed women wear white. The tradition is not followed anymore though; what wanted to convey was that Panki's mother didn't remarry after her father passed away like Holly's character in P.S. I love you. Panki in this story always wondered why her mother never remarried all these years. The book had the answer. Love never dies, it lives on...It helped her see her mom in new light...and that explains the title as well...beautiful books strengthen relationships.

      Shilpa @ Hope you could relate to the story now.

    1. No, no LP. It was her mom. Clad in white just meant she was widowed like Holly. And Panki could feel the pain that her mother went thru when her father died while she was reading the book

The Story Of A Designer Diya

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT" (Today, fifteen-years ago, Roshini had first lighted this antique designer diya at her dilapidated shanty. Today, fifteen-years after, Roshini is still excited about this old designer diya; and she’d once again light it up with all the energy and enthusiasm; but no, not at her shabby shanty.)                                         -----------------------------------



The designer diya was old, dull, dim and dinted. It lay there in the corner of the kitchen store room unwanted, uncared for amidst other regular diyas, half-burnt candles, unused rangoli colors, plastic thorans: all tightly tied-up and stored in a thick polythene bag.
