What Did She Want To Be?

In January, the little girl wanted to be a sweater, so that she could give warmth to every one

In February, she thought she would become a house, so that she could give shelter to loads of creatures, including insects and birds (they dont have anywhere else to stay na)

In March, she wanted to be the colours of Holi so that she could be thrown on everyone, and everyone could become colourful and happy because of her (but only vegetable/fruit based colours okay?)

In April, she wanted to be a mango, raw and ripe both so that it brought a smile on people’s face to see her and she imagined the wonderful ways people could eat her

In May, she thought its best she comes a refrigrator to help cool things down and people would keep opening her to get cooler things

In June, she wanted to be a tree, so that she could provide shade to the weary travellers and she could enjoy the first drop of rains in the later half of the month

In July, she was sure she would be an Umbrella so that she could protect everyone from the rains

In August, she thought she would be the mushroom that blooms up on a window sill due to the moist weather so that she could give joy to a kid watching her grow

In September, she wanted to be Ganesh bhagwan so that she got all the modaks to eat,

In October, she thought she should become a diya, so that people would light her to ward away the darkness and welcome Diwali

In November, she wanted to be an Ant, so that she could get into the lovely delicacies people had stored after Diwali and eat it up to her heart’s content

In December, she thought of becoming a Christmas Cake with tons of plum so that everyone would bite into her and feel the joy of the season.

At the end she realised, she could be whatever she wanted, because she had the richest imagination in the world!

  7. What a beautiful post, RM. One of your best. Brings out the flavour of each month in such a lovely way! πŸ™‚

    She thinks of herself only in September and November and that too for the FOOD!!!
    On a very serious note RM, my daughter is like this…Sometimes I am proud of it and other times I think she is tooo giving , I keep giving subtle hints that it is always not necessary to please people….She could do things for herself..as long as she does not inconvenience others and she is doing the right thing everyone will be happy.
    Have not yet found the balance… What do you think 2/12 is a good score for doing things for oneself.
    Loved the post, sorry for going on a tangent.
