we went to goa in december. and she got to spend time with a dear friend, rahul.
my mum went to goa last week. and she asked me- nani goa mein rahul ko milegi?
i said no. she has gone on work and she hardly knows rahul.
arrey, nani kyon nahin milegi rahul ko? woh rahul ko missing nahin karti? rahul bhi to nani ko missing karta hoga.
that two people she knows and adores dont know each other or dont care enough to make time to meet each other is unimaginable to her.
and today i was watching footage of my new film. she saw sumisha on screen. she met her last week, sat on her lap- and listened to her sing when i had gone to meet her.
she asked me, sumisha kal baby atiya ke party mein kyon nahin aayi?
i did not say- but baby atiya and her mum have no clue who sumisha is.
i said, sumisha busy thi na.
next time she meets you and asks why you did not invite sumisha please dont say you dont know who that is, and you dont care who she is. she likes sumisha, she might want to introduce you to her. and to baby atiya and imaane aapa. maybe to her nani and nana, dadi, dada....maybe her mukkal, bodhi baba, ajoo, sarada, bangalore wala sanjay, her sister/friend vaanya, oh oh this list could go on ....
just humour her and look interested please...
