The sangeet ceremony starts and Sunaina gets dressed up in a green and red colored sari. She puts gajra and ties her hair in a bun. She puts ghungroos and Samar waits to just have a slight glimpse of her.
“I hope Kalpana does her steps properly.” Sunaina’s mother says.
“No mom. She is dancing on her own favorite song. I told her to do so.” Sunaina answers.
“Why did you let her dance on her song? You know how naughty she is? What if she chooses a weird song? I am so scared of that girl.”
“Mom, she is naught but smart as well. I am sure she will chose a good song. I trust her.”
“Hmmm…Hope so. I still remember what she danced for your cousin’s wedding. Inhi logon ne le lena duppatta mera (These people have taken away my scarf). I mean I was shocked when she started dancing on that song. A mujra song for a sangeet ceremony. All the people started cheering as she was dancing. Baba re baba, Kalpana my God.”
Sunaina starts laughing and says “She was only 14 years mom. She did not even know the difference between a classical song and a mujra song. And I still remember she was just turning round and round innocently. She did not even have any steps in her song. Aahhh! My Kalpu has become so big. I just love her.”
