Scene: Few old photographs of her parents she was looking at. 

'Ma,  u looked so different before  cool,  classy, just like Rima Di. ( a 19 yr old college going girl) 

But why u wear  saree ,  heavy bangles, large earrings, chains on neck,   the vermillion on scalp ,  red bindi all the time now . They make u look boring,  unclassy,  even  older  at times .Said the 7 yr old daughter. 

The mother smiled and said ' I am married now, these are signs of it , a proof of my marriage '.

'Then what proof is Papa giving then? He looks so same even now,   no change at all.' 

No reply she had now for this...
