Fourteen years of toil finally paid off today. I am happy....very much so....

But the effect was perhaps a tad bit marred by almost 50 squiggly, hyperactive kids (not ONE of them was more than 5 years old) ....NONE of whom would keep their make-up on even for 10 minutes at a stretch.... you won't believe the number of times I was confronted with tearful eyes and smudgy make-up and wails of 'Didi gooooooooo....o amar kajol dhebre dilo goooooooooooo'.

Wuuuuufffff....I will go and have a big bowl of chocolate ice cream now.....my batteries need some serious recharging....

kal tor recital? have a nice one!

and kajol - the thick, soft, smdugy kajol with its distinct aroma - it's such a comforting thing, na? reminds me of childhood... when mom used to draw a big clumsy teep with it just above the eyebrows, and another dot far above the forehead near the hairline, to ward off evil eye... and then line the eyes... aajkal'kar half-bong bachcha'ra don't know of these things, do they...

(i'm talking quite off-topic i know... have a great show anyway)

@ generallyspeaking - heh ....chocolate icecream was not available...my 'rakshas' of a brother had eaten it all...so i had to settle for an orange stick instead which is a pathetic substitute for chocolate icecream...

@shyo - thank u. :)
