At every stop we could find rest houses so stay won’t be a problem and we also had a driver and a servant more to take care of us. I was only too happy to say that i was more than willing to take mother out.
We started early in the morning and mother came dressed in a floral white sari with a pink blouse.
In fact when we moved on the mall in the evening, many mistook her for being my girlfriend. As she was the wife of a bureaucrat, she used to pay a lot of attention to her fitness and beauty. She was given to traditional an outfit at home which was normally a sari with a full blouse and bangles, bindi and all. She used to dress up like a new bride with full jewelry and bangles and traditional bordered saris.
Though it was strange that she still wore designer colorful bras and panties which i saw often drying in the sun at the back of the bathroom balcony.
I was spellbound to find even Victoria’s secret and Roberto cavalli in them.
Obviously i said yes and to my utter surprise she pulled out a bag and started looking for them.
She then took them out and i saw that they were really old and mom said that she will put the on later. There was also a small outhouse located at some distance from the big bungalow.
It’s a very true story between Indian mother and her son and please don’t’ think about it as fake. I am telling this story from my friend’s perspective.
I know it is very rare for such thing to happen in India but believe me it happened between these families. My father is a senior ias officer posted at shimla.
