So this painting just didn’t came to my mind our of the blue!!
There is a little story behind this one!
My grandmother told me a story that was so hilarious, serious and interesting and sad at the same time.. that it was so fun for me to listen to that as a teenager from my own grandmother(dimma)!
When she got married she met my grandfather(dadu) first time during their marriage ritual and well that was the norm then!!
After they got married their intimacy was just blooming and all.. and as you know young people have all the will to do something that’s not allowed!
My dadu took my dida to a photo studio and wanted to get a cozy picture clicked to keep himself,
I have seen the picture myself, which I don’t want to share now coz I don’t know whether they would have liked it or not!
The picture was of dimma casually hugging my dadu and they were all dressed up just like this in the image!
That photo somehow was found by her mother in law! And she was all angry and shaming dimma for being so shameless for clicking such an disgraceful picture with her own husband!
The fun part was always dimma ending the story rolling her eyes and saying, it was just a picture, and i was touching my husband.. and i still don’t understand what the issue was!! But who cares!! That was fun!
I always laughed out so hard for the way she narrated it to me always!
With all her moral baggage.. she made her way through her life with grace.
And now they are not here .. and i am left all those beautiful stories carefully stored in my memory!
I’m always mesmerised by the intricacies of how people negotiated with their situations.. are always fascinating and interesting!
