It was a Rainy Day- but not any other rainy day it was. It was “Rajaa”. A special festival in Odia families that pampers girls. They wear new clothes. Eat a lot of delicacies prepared specially for the day. And most importantly spend the entire time on the swings! Zoop!
And hence Miss Honey Satpathy was no exception.
But Lo! The rain lashed heavily on the grass without a moment to pass.. and Miss Honey’s Mommy refused to permit her to play outside, lest she dirty her new frock. Lest she caught cold…
But Miss Honey knew the spell. She sat on the verandah wall and hummed.
Rain! Rain! Go Away!
Little Honey wants to Play!!
Come again another Day!
Let Pink shine over the grey!
The Rain subsided. and she put on her new pink frock …
But where was the swing that Daddy had promised her back??
She was upset and wouldn’t listen to any buttering.
Negotiations one After another.
from the Sister and the Brother.
But Why should Honey bother?
She was upset that her Father,
Didn’t buy her a swing!
It was such a cruel thing!!
But a cunning cousin
Had a cunning vision.
She knew what a girl most Desires…
“A Beauty that everyone admires”!
And that did the trick!!
Both the girls went on a walk.
And became the Town’s Talk!
Sometimes she would sit and Pose.
Until the world around her froze.
Ohh! What a Beauty!
Pink and Pretty!
Honey and Amber.
Her Sunshine fur!!
She was the apple of everybody’s eyes.
“Now for a swing what little girl cries??”
She was the heroine.She was the star.
whom people came to see from near and far!
then came her Daddy, Back from office.
“If not a swing Daddy. I have another wish!!”
“A ride in your car is all that I want.
Please daddy its a wish that you must grant!”
I get to ride the steering wheel!
With her ‘little’ wishes granted.
What more had Honey wanted?
The new pink frock.
A car ride with Daddy on her side.
A beauty that was Mommy’s pride.
The fans who cheered the ‘Pink Princess’.
“What more on earth does one anyone wishes!”
Did you just say I was the most Beautiful Girl on earth?!!
Can I blush!!
