random thoughts-not demented mind

Betrayed by youth, the thin old man struggled to push his cart full of vegetables, in the road that was inclined upwards to reach the market place.

Feeling guilty and helpless, i looked on quietly as i waited for my bus to work. i couldn’t carry vegetables to work even if i bought some from him.

Decided, i must get up early even on weekends to walk a little extra and buy from one of these vegetable sellers before they reached the market. The vegetables are anyway fresh and beautiful than those found in the racks of the beautiful stores, all fainted but wrapped in neat plastics.

Succeeded to do it, after much struggling to get out of bed. Then bought a nice breakfast for the husband on the way home and watched him eat happily. Boy, is he so easy to please or am i so much in love?

Listened to the kid neighbor talk about her vacation plans in zest. i might get bored if i get that much holiday. Am i getting old and boring?

Wishing for company to the pool, i told Archoo that it is time to get back to shape as her baby is 9 months old now. Headed to the pool to find a lot of overweight women in swim suits determined to swim away the inches.

Not being able to contain her happiness on being slimmer than some people, Archoo exclaimed loudly, “i am so happy about myself”. Shooed her away from the ladies before they heard and crushed us. Happiness is relative!

Enjoyed being part of the women brigade- all unconscious of their bodies in all shapes and sizes. Enjoyed more being part of the minority in that brigade-not come to learn swimming or lose weight.

Company of a female friend, pep talk, dip in the pool on a hot day and the taste of chilled and succulent watermelon. Heavenliness?!

I try and avoid the sabji wallahs because one does not know if the produce is from the train tracks.

Touchwood. You know for what.
