Since Dusshera is round the corner, I thought I’ll give Sita a modern twist.
I am kicking myself for being so goody-goody. I should have stayed back and gotten fat. But no! I had to act like one those dumb belles in the saas-bahu serials and follow my husband to the forest like a loyal puppy. What was I thinking! Sigh… Life was so much cooler at the Palace – all those maids, the soft bed, the scented massage, the gorgeous Jacuzzi…I miss it so bad. And guess what! I am even missing my MILs. Yep, the same old hags I took such pains to avoid. And it wasn’t that tough you know. They mostly stuck to their rooms and all they did was play cards and watch TV.
