Wrong Attire

The wrong attire
This was a journal entry from some 5 years back, I stumbled upon today.. when Tanush was a baby and I was visiting my mom in Mumbai.. Some girl had assumed I was the nanny and not the mom of the baby and she spoke with me in a stylized Marathi. I came back home and looked into the mirror and knew what would have prompted her.. Nannies come really 'neatly' dressed these days (neat, in my mom's language). More importantly, mostly, they are the ones seen with the kids these days. Moms in urban India are rarely ever seen taking their kids out to play or even for a walk...
