Shorts: Don’t judge me by it!!!

i'm Really busy

Because I wear a shorts and leave my home for shopping with my mom… or in the same avatar I go for a movie with my brother or go to Mc. Donald’s or just for buying a packet of bread doesn’t mean that I have kept my innocence at stake… when I say innocence it means a it more than it sounds…

It is all about our comfort… it is all about MY comfort… today as I had my weekly off, I thought I will go to the bank and complete some pending works and update my passbooks and open a new recurring account… I went out wearing my normal shorts a t-shirt, mobile and passbooks in the pocket of my shorts and music falling on my ears, hair all tied up in a bun… I left my apartment ignoring the stares of my watchman… on the way to the bank I met an aunty from my apartment so I smiled at her and wished her good morning… she smiled in that typical way and I could read what her smile said… her smile said, ”What is she wearing!!! Today’s kids are just going out of hand… I am glad my daughter is not like her..” while the aunty was staring at me I was staring at her daughter who is a year older to me who was wearing a salwar kameez with her hair tied in a braid…  and I know that she isn’t that good as she seems… I know where she goes in the night in the name of group study… finally I just told the aunty that I am sorry but I have to leave as I have to rush to the bank… she said ok but next time wear a jeans down and that is when my volcano erupted and I smiled sarcastically and said, “aunty at least my mom knows that I am wearing this and going to the bank…” her daughter was looking at me as if I have done something wrong after wearing the shorts…

Well I just left from there… I was just thinking is my shorts so short? Then I looked down and told to myself that,”NO it isn’t…” it is just below my knees and that is decent enough… well then I let go the thoughts of the aunt’s looks and took my pace of walking… then I met a few eyes that were scanning me as if I have done some blunder… moving even further I realized that there was a group of guys standing who were eyeing me and that was weird… I increased my speed and finally reached the bank…

In the bank an entirely new chapter started… there were many people and most of them were the retired uncles and aunties who had come to collect their pensions… luckily I met my brother just outside the bank and so took him inside… asked him to stand at the passbook queue while I did the other bank works… I was being eyed by almost everyone in the bank… from small children to old people… I know when old people eye me they must be thinking about the modernization today’s children have… but isn’t it wrong to judge a person with their clothes…

Though I might wear shorts and roam about in my local area or wear jeans and go to work and might apply loads of perfume when I leave home… I do come home late at nights after work and also go out to party with my friends on weekends… but that doesn’t mean that I have adapted westernization…

I love going to Maa Kali temples… I pray at home everyday in the evening if I have a leave… I spend my leaves with my family and love taking my mom out for dinners and shopping… and the best part is that whatever I do is after taking permission from my mom… she has given me the permission to wear shorts and go out… she has given me the permission to go out with friends and drink but in limit… she has given me the permission to make a boyfriend but again with some limitation… many people think that my mom is very modern and giving me lots of levy but my mom believes in one thing that if she stops me of doing something I will still do it but will hide it from her so why not give me the permission to do things and then keep some limitations… now as my mom has given me the permission to go out with friends and work for an International BPO and party and wear clothes that I like I don’t do anything against her will… I go out with friends but when it comes to buying clothes I only prefer wearing clothes of my mom’s choice and trust me they are all awesome…

I know many people who are being asked by their folks not to do stuff and these people apparently lie to their parents… like last week when I had planned with friends to go out for clubbing a girl in my group told her mom a lie that she is going out with friends for some friend’s birthday party… but on the other hand as it was my first experience in a pub I asked my mom and she told me to have fun and experience my first pub encounter… I went to the pub and was bored to hell… I am person who doesn’t love dancing or loud music… and I was totally bored in a pub… rather I would have loved spending the time walking down the road with some nice soft music or just sitting by the beach side with a book in my hand and a beer bottle by my side…

Well when people say that Mita has become too modern these days, they are just going by my clothes and shoes and my bags… but people these things doesn’t make me modern… I am still too conservative…

I was really shocked when a cousin of mine asked me a week back, “you are now working for an International BPO, you must’ve lost your virginity by now… I mean just look at the way you get dressed these days, it is just perfect- with perfect make up and lots of perfume… and an addition to the entire thing is that you are now 21…” I was stunned for some moments… and then I started smiling and told her, “Didi just because I am 21 and working for an International BPO doesn’t mean that I have lost my virginity… and in a joking tone I told her I have the best for the last…” she looked at me from top to bottom and then jus gave me a blank smile and left…

Well I know this one’s a blog where I have written things too boldly but the fact is what it is… I need people to understand that please don’t judge people by their clothes and behavior all the time, I may wear shorts and come home late but that doesn’t mean that I am all OFF TRACK now… I am still the same Mita as I was who loves reading and loves chocolates, loves romantic movies and eating all junk food… I am still the same child from inside…
