Once Upon an Un-Fairytale…
What a sucky Sunday. Lee-sha cried and was sad and quiet all day. She’s been like that since Savitri Aunty went to Pune to live with her brother. I keep saying her mother will come back but she won’t believe me. She won’t play with me. Not even with the Barbie and Ken dolls Daddy got us from his dentist conference in Singapore. She said 11 year-olds do not play with dolls. She won’t come down the building to play either. She won’t laugh at my jokes. Remember the sick little billi Krish found under Sood Uncle’s Maruti? Lee-sha looks like that now. And Krish won’t help her feel better like he helped the kitty. I yelled at him to be nice to his sister but he won’t listen to me. He got angry with me and told me to butt out of his life. Vallima and Priya didi want me to leave him alone. They think he’s sad too. I don’t believe them. Krish is not sad.

Remember my wish to marry Krish one day and live in a big house by a huge pond with our families? I changed my mind. I do NOT want to marry Krish anymore. I will marry a real prince who has an enormous kingdom and lives in a humungous castle with lots and lots of pretty white horses with pink bows on their tails.

Good Monday, Peeps. :)
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our dark that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine as children do. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsiously give other people to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Sir I just wanna say thank you … You saved my life.
