'It's a Girl!' is a short tale ornamented with the form of a conversation conveying a deep social communique.
‘It’s a Girl!’ is a short tale ornamented with the form of a conversation conveying a deep social communique. This throws light on a reality where modern girls are lashing their wings of potential in the professional demesne by breaking the ceiling of social taboos leaving the orthodox people around them flabbergasted.
Here it goes…
Because they couldn’t decide how to celebrate such an occasion, they threw a party!
The list somehow kept getting bigger just like their smiles!
Their house was becoming a store of sparkling lights, and other equipments for a bash.
Just two days before the party, they called in two of their close relatives to scrutinise the arrangements and make last-minute refinements.
As they went through the plans of decorations, buffet and other segments and by seeing the piles of invitation letters, their family members’ eyes got wider. They protested synchronously.
They – What is the need of throwing such a grand party? It’s a girl!
Shocked by hearing this from their own relatives, her smile wobbled. But he answered promptly.
He – Absolutely! Because it’s a girl.
She stared at her husband with rejuvenated respect. She attempted to appreciate him, but the words fluttered and flew in the wind.Their love instantly got resuscitated!
The execution of their plans remained undisturbed. The party had to be the most spectacular one anyone had ever witnessed!
After all, their daughter was finally a fighter pilot in Indian Air Force!
She had made them prouder than any boy ever could.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
