The Moon reminds me of you…
So beautiful so bring, yet so far away …
Rest in Peace
A Memoir of Fantasy
Flashing stage lights, a puff of dry ice, clapping hands, cheering crowds, all that a performer could ever wish for in the fantasies of their dreams.
But still, my mascara smotched eyes looked around frantically just for you. My Hero! The day I donned the saree and put on the gunghroo, you had turned your face away, My heart ached but by that time I was efficient enough to mend my scars myself.
You said that I was a disgrace to the family, ” Boys don’t apply lipstick, they don’t wear the gunghroo” is what you said.
Every single time I had a performance, I expected you would be there by my side, clasping my hand and letting out a little whisper ” Stay Strong, You’re doing nothing wrong” but maybe God feels that I don’t deserve that much.
Today as I performed at the 50th death anniversary of my guru, my peers said you’re the best performer in the entire world. But they do not know that in the eyes of my favorite person it’s all dark.
I Love you Dad.
I wish you were here, with me.
