Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

Feminine handicap

On the run-up to sis' engagement - which involved visits to the beauty parlour, shopping, matching jewellery, making decorations and rangolis and more - sis and I realised that we suffered from one big handicap: certain feminine skill sets.

We have so many cousins and friends for whom making a big rangoli or applying mehendi or choosing the perfect facial is child's play. But for sis and me, it involves SOS calls and elaborate google searches.

We have taken this up as a challenge and have decided to acquire some essential life skills because learning to apply mehendi or do a pedicure can actually save several thousands of rupees.

As we felt quite insufficient and inadequately prepared for life, a particular young cousin sagely counseled: "everyone has their uses, you cannot make a rangoli, so what, you get your friends the best job offers".
