I stood up and went towards the lav,
And felt all the eyes on me.
I still got inside and checked for the scars,
Found none on my face but just below the tee,
A small red spot on my pants-
Smirked at me from the other side of mirror.
I pulled the t-shirt down just over the stain,
But, all in vain when I saw the rear-
I said, “f*ck it!” and stepped out,
But,couldn’t avoid the mocking stares.
With clumsy steps as I reached my place,
A peer called and hushed about my stained pairs.
I packed up and walked towards the door,
With more stares than before and some whispers.
Thus, by the time I punched out from the place,
Almost everyone had gasped, “Whoa! the period stain.”

But ever since I’d read the news that Gauri Khan may be one of the guests of the show, I knew I didn’t want to miss this episode. Even though there would be no Shah Rukh Khan, it didn’t matter.
In fact Gauri Khan, queen bee of all Bollywood wives, is enough on her own! And when there are buddies Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey, do we need anyone else?
At the age of 60, my mother started earning her own money. It instilled a sense of pride and confidence in her that I could never see earlier.
Most of us grow up idolizing our mothers. I wasn’t an exception, either. As far as I can remember, I have always been more attached to my mother than my father.
Ma, who never had anyone to support her after marriage, worked extremely hard to bring me up.
Despite coming from a remote village in Bangladesh, she was far-sighted enough to realize the importance of English and made sure that I got admitted in a reputed English-medium school.
