The journey of 15 years
Started from someone else’s love note
Little did I know…..
It would end up in me,marrying a katora cut so.
NDA with its spider lillies
Turned out to be my lucky charm
But on pre pop night, the bed bugs of Z sqn
Turned my happy aura, lukewarm.
The Sukhois fly past and the reverberating mast
All added to the glory of the march past.
So lost in the show of the suryakirans, was I…
That my jealous bf got me a neck collar as stand by.
IMA bought in separation blues….
A little glimpse of life ahead, true.
Pune, my career battleground
And he busy in his ‘Ragada’ rounds.
Dec 2003 saw him pass out….
Only to land in the quicksand, sound.
Two shiny stars on the shoulders looked beautiful
While the invisible major(read wife ) ruled the roost.
In normal range, we tried to keep our ECG
As we learnt to navigate the force, OG
Maggie tomato chilli sauce, our life seemed to be..
Hot n Sweet but tastefully different, you see.
Up n down, the machine whizzed…
‘Married to the Olive Greens’ the book, quizzed
Sarees n parties and all the enamour…
Were just a part of the outer glamour.
The learning curve, on the rise
The peaks characterized by the hard times
Tough they made me, wise or otherwise
With Self Respect as my prize.
