सखे,

सोनारा, शून्य नंबरी काळे मणी...
मधोमध सोन्याची वाटी, त्यात लाल माणिक...
दोन अलीकडे, दोन पलीकडे... इवलाले मोती...
गळ्याशीच चपखल बसायला हवं...
रोज मला मिरवायला हवं.

वापरलं मिरवलं.
पण...
सोंडवाल्याने मला नाही सांगितलं.
त्याने त्याचं गणित बदललं.
वर्षभरात त्याने ते कडीकुलुपात नेलं.

जाऊ दे...
नाहीतरी डिझाईन जुनंच झालेलं...

आता मात्र सख्यांनो,
मला नका विचारू,
नवीन डिझाईनचं नाव नका काढू.

ते जे काळं मंगळसूत्र असतं...
ते कसंही खुलूनंच दिसतं...
त्याच्याशिवाय गं, ओकबोकं वाटतं.

अनघा, मला तुझ्या "ह्या घराचं" नेहमीच आश्चर्य वाटतं, का माहितेय? कारण इथे नेहमी एक नवीन बाळ जन्माला आलेलं असतं आणि प्रत्येक बाळ गालगुच्चा घ्यावं इतकं गोंडस असतं!

little bit of gold, little bit of design and lots of anticipation about the new piece of jewelery. many come to you asking if they can copy your pattern. fancy new neck pieces arrive and all wear it like a band of sisters.

only when you are denied the permission to wear something that is your brainchild, it hits you - it wasn't just jewelery.

and as far as others are concerned - their hands just mindlessly clutch their own strings of black beads...very tight...and realise with shock and apprehension...'oh this isn't just jewelery'.

yes i vividly remember literally sitting on their heads and making sure every single moti was just right. i also remember how you had been clicking away all designs worn by women in you office and you carried those printouts too. The eternal perfectionist. Oh...
