One shopping experience which drove me crazy!

Everyone loves gifts. Albeit, we don’t ask for the same but somewhere we just wish to get it from our loved ones. And, it excites us every time! Gifts drive everyone crazy & one gets crazier when they have to gift the ‘one’ someone!

Thoughts which keep the mind wallowing in are- how your loved ones would react to, whether they would like it, is it really worth of keep, & blah blah blah ......................

But, one thing which makes one bother much more than any thought is- does it give a replica of our miser attitude? Sometimes, we are just short of money but want to gift our loved ones something which would make them feel loved, and doesn’t give them a thought of its cheapness.

Albeit, every time when I have to bestow someone with largesse, my forehead lines protrude-kya doon??? But, this year when my younger sister birthday came in July, I found myself, indeed, helpless!

My relationship with my younger sister is just like a Tom & Jerry Cartoon Show. There are usual fights, then a documentary show where just silence & gestures play a substantial role, and then our love toward each other which is blissful- where everyone just wants to be a part of it.

So, we had a fight a week before her birthday & somehow, we patched up only to go into another one just a day before her birthday. Though, I keep pondering what to gift her on her every birthday but there is always a tendency to have a second choice-in case, if I won’t get the first choice or if it would not be the best one to offer. Because, we had a fight, there was more pressure this time. Her coaching classes were getting cancelled every time & she was all there in home to get my surprise packed for her. It was just her birth-day when I went to have her gift. I went mall to mall but nothing made me feel to offer which also suited my pocket. I am not a miser, but I was just short of money! Finally, I took a back turn to a mall which I visited first. I went Globus, finally to get her bangles. She loves them! I loved just two of the bangles amongst them,  & got baffled with making choice between them-which one to offer. Both were pretty, but one was tagged slightly above the price I could pay for. Finally, I chose the cheaper one (but, it was not so cheap- if you are aware of the brand Globus!).

Because, we had a fight, I wanted to have a patch up before her birthday. I, just, wanted to let her get that I had bought the gift for her. I wanted to get her know. I was pretending to make endeavors to keep her gift a secret from her, but nothing seemed to be working out. Usually, we gift during the cake-cutting ceremony; but this time I was just short of patience. At midnight, when usually I wish her birthday with just kisses & hugs; this time I gifted the bangle too. And, it just made my day (Oops, night!), when she told that she was just wishing to get the ‘same’ bangle when she went with her friends the same Globus showroom. Ahh,............I felt grateful to God that I was short of money!
