When?

When will we learn? When??
Firstly the sight of lights all along roads irritates me. Add to that tall posters with photos of these politicogoons - smiling & folded hands..(che shoot those AH- both the man in the poster & who planted it there)..then large vinyl placards singing paeans of these goofs..
These days its just not when these tallll leaders visit places for meetings, its also when they visit marriage halls..again lights, posters etc for 2 kms either side of the halls and the hall itself over done with glaring lights & blaring sound.
So one such hall we were crossing last evening where there were these ritualistic lights, poster, bandbaja etal..and W asks me to guess what the occasion was..
I said I knew there was a marriage hall round the corner..she asked me what could be the function that’s celebrated there? So she had the benefit of reading one of the posters or seen that big floral welcome board announcing the ‘event’..
I cudnt guess..u cant either..
It was the case of a little girl attaining puberty! Yes!! Some chottu had a natural periods and it is being announced proudly with so much opulence to the whole world! Shame on her parents. They cant keep something so personal to their daughter within their walls, hmmm..
And to screw up not only her happiness n privacy but to screw up mine too, by such show off- lights, posters etc warrants a big curse! @#$%$$%%
