Well I knew that history always repated itself. However, I never realised that it could even repeat in some matters which are as silly as clothes. Let me begin with the history and then come to how it repeated itself.
The history- I must have been four years old when my mother and I had gone shopping. We went to a shop which we used to haunt often. After a lot of looking, my mom chose a yellow coloured "middy" for me. There was another piece of the same "middy" but it was blue in colour. As blue was my favourite colour at that time, I promptly chose the blue one.
My mom felt that the blue was a little too gaudy and she asked me to take the yellow one. However, stubborn that I was, I insisted on having the yellow middy. Me and my mom argued for nearly 30 mins. Finally, my exasperated mom just brought the yellow "middy" and dragged me out of the shop. I was so hurt, that I refused to wear the dress. I remember telling my mom that I would just burn the dress rather than wear it. In the end, my mom had to boost my ego to make me wear the dress. She made me wear the frock and made me stand in front of the full length mirror. She said that I looked very pretty in it. I guess only after that I got convinced that frock was really good.
Now coming to how the history repeated itself. It happend before my engagement. As per the custom, the engagement sarree is given to the girl by the in-laws. My mother-in -law had brought two sarrees one was a yellow one with red border and the other one was blue in colour. My mom- in- law asked me to choose one among the two. I somehow felt the blue sarree was brighter than the yellow one and I said I wanted the blue one. But then again, my MIL asked me to take the yellow one. I again stood by the blue sarree. My MIL finally agreed. After a few days when my mom had been to visit my in laws. There, my MIL showed both the sarrees to my mom and asked her to choose. As usual, my mom also liked the yellow one. And then again, I was made to take the yellow sarree. I wore the sarree on my engagement. Everyone appreciated it. And yes. It did boost my ego!!! These days I'm beginning to doubt my selections. So much for history repeating itself!!! HUMPH
