পুজোর গয়না


A few years back, Ma had given me a wooden comb from Shonibarer Haat in Shantiniketan. It was tucked carefully in my jewellery box and remained unused. It was too beautiful for combing hair. I would often hold it in my palm, look and put it back where it belonged.   
*********************************
For the past few years, I have always tried to make (on my own) at least one piece of jewellery for myself for Pujo. This year, I had an unusually busy schedule and all these high hopes disappeared in oblivion. (Even yesterday morning, I was revising and adding to my Grumble-List and this was one of the primary items).
*********************************
Yesterday, while buying something from a local grocery store, I discovered a quaint little sewing shop in my para. Instantly an idea made a Jack-in-the-box act. I bought six Anchor embroidery threads. Pocket pinch: 30 rupees only!!! (the lips spread ear-to-ear, curving a reverse-rainbow across my face).


I came back home and in fifteen flat minutes, my jewellery was ready (including clicking these photos).




The only thing that is left now: “Eta pore manja dewa!” *mentally singing this* :D

    1. Is it? I didn't know. God promise, I didn't copy it. :( It was just a spark of an idea...instant, impromptu. Anyways, hope you had a colourful pujo too. I had one!
