Gift! So rare! I dint dare, Dream of owning! Could not afford; I swear! Parents decide now on gifting, To come to terms, it was overwhelming! What was the need to spend so much money? I miffed! They said “We have! We can think of buying”! Tears of pride came over gushing! Emotions filled the air! Counting blessing, Held with care! Did wear! Sniffed!
Tried a Diatelle, mainly because it’s in the shape of a diamond. The word “sniffed” is with respect to the side effect of tears 😅
My dad decided to surprise me with a gift. A diamond ring!! I’ve been brought up in stages of childhood, where it was difficult for my parents to make ends meet. Today, it fills me with pride to see both of them, being self reliant, financially stable and independent, and being able to enjoy a comfortable life.
I never fancied gold or diamond or any kind of jewellery. May be I always had the mindset, that diamond is far away from my reach, it never made its way to my dreams! Never dreamt of getting married to a rich family to be able to spend lavishly either!
Today, my parents were fulfilling a dream of their’s. And I had no choice but to oblige. I had a mixture of emotions when I saw the blue box, in which adorned a ring with sparkling stones.
If I express a wish to own jewellery, my husband will fulfil it for sure! By God’s grace, it is possible. But this gift, means the world to me!! However comfortable a girl is financially in her marriage, however capable her husband is, any gift from the mom’s side is priceless!
I am blessed to see this day. Not because of the shine of the diamonds, but to see the shine in my dad’s eyes ❤️
An ad on the TV said.. “Wah! Ustaad Wah! …. arey huzoor Wah Taj boliye”.
How many recollect the Taj Mahal tea advertisement from the 90s in India. Ustaad Zakir Hussain ji creating majic with his Tabla, in front of this monument, after sipping Taj Mahal tea! From those days, it was my dream to see it one day!
A trip here a few years ago, left me in awe. The Taj Mahal beaming in all its glory with the morning sun rays made it a picturesque view.
The white marble beauty adorned with rubies, sapphires, emeralds, pearls made me wonder…. how expensive is Shah Jahan’s memoire for his beloved 😃.
How deep must be the love for his wife
To build a symbol of love after her life
A memoir for her in the place she lies..
Was it to prove true love never dies?
Shining like a Pearl with the blue sky in the backdrop
The mausoleum makes the travellers jaw drop
To describe its beauty in the best possible way
“Wah Taj” was all that I could say 😊
