Appearance Alters

I know this girl for long time. She lives in my community and I know her parents too. Her parents know me by face. Whenever we meet in temple or any public place, we don’t talk or say hi!

She is of my age. We are mates in math’s tuition.  She looks very cute. When compared to her parents she out performs them in beauty.

But because of the professional life (is it true?)  And other commitments, I lost track of few friends and she is one among them.

Recently I met her in railway station. She had a small girl who was holding her hand and walking. A baby boy couched in her arms was asleep. Recognizing me, she smiled.  I was fighting hard with my memory to recall her old looks. I recognized her then, but all her gorgeous looks, the cute smile & her beauty have gone. She looked a bit hefty.

She introduced her baby girl to me & the girl looked very cute as she looked at my math’s tuition. We had a chat for 10 minutes until the train came & then we bid adieu.

I got a question now….why beautiful looking girl’s mom is not always beautiful?

Appearance Alter itself due to Stress?

Telephone

Re-winding my life to 1988

I remember using the telephone when I was in 3rd standard. There were only 6 digits (Madras number). It was considered as the most posh possession after television.

The sky colored phone coughs the classic TRING TRING… I used to run to the phone, just to say a hello.

Any call is charged as SINGLE call. Until the line is disconnected, it’s charged as single call. And am not sure, how many free calls were there, but there were a lot.

There were STD calls called as TRUNK calls. Today’s generation would not even know this. The trunk call is booked on priorities like Normal, Urgent & Lightning. I was very happy to connect to my grandpa in my village. He also got a phone connection and the number is just 2 digits.

1996 – 1998: The phone was majorly used for my educational purpose. Don’t be confused, I used to call my friends, chit chat & when mom sees, act as if discussing curricular subjects & when she is off, discussing the obvious.

1999:  I purchased two Application forms costing 10 Rupees each for new phone connection. Normally a new connection gets approved after 3 years of the application!

2002 till now: The revolution of communication industry has equipped every person to have a mobile device.

The first phone is still with us and serving the purpose of BROADBAND INTERNET services
