Odours make way for fragrance !! They increase the human tendency to sniff at everything 🙂 Ours is not an exception.I have a special penchant for sunflowers. The flower scares me to the core and unfortunately without any reason. Our garden was abuzz with sunflowers once upon a time.It was the time whe we thought trees make the world beautiful.It is true indeed.But gradually our hobby of gardening turned the lawn into forest.I would sniff at every instant and I was in Standard one at that time.It was a horrible experience.The lawn was buzz with sunflowers.My father had special attention for sunflowers and was really caught up between my illness and his passion.But he decided to sacrifice his love for sunflowers for my sake. Fatherhood won this battle. I was burdened under the fact that I was contributing to global warming but kept my heart over head 🙂
Sunflower chapter was over but the series of terrible odours was yet to begin. Health of my mother suddenly went off radar and she was advised for complete bed rest.We had to look for a maid and unfortunately (for me) , we got one.
She was an expert in her field of work.She would finish the work before you anticipate it to finish.She would make delicious dishes for us and wrap up early.It was the best time for all of us.She would enjoy her work and make us feel well.She would come to work after having a meal in her house.This is where the real problem started.Stale food took a toll on her and we were taken for a ride.She would turn our house into hell within minutes.Her farts would rule our small kingdom. We were hopeless and were tied to the circumstances.Whenever I used to comment on her food habit,she used to turn around and greet me with a fart.She would then smile and go to the kitchen to prepare delicious dish for us.My cousins used to laugh at me as I was subjected to a new state of mockery and defiance. My mother’s health and I was happy with the feeling that farts won’t steal my sleep and test my patience again. Doctor came as a devil to extend her bed rest to fifteen days. Finally after an ordeal of three months,maid left us !! Yes,you heard it right !! She is gone leaving her memories full of odours !!
