There are times when you feel that your wishes are fulfilled by merely thinking about them.

I was visiting my parents a few years ago and I saw my SIL in a mustard kanjeevaram and I told her it looked beautiful. After some time my mother asked me “Do you have a mustard saree? I don’t think I have seen you in one.” And I wistfully told her that I didn’t.

I had forgotten about this conversation.

On her next visit to Chennai, she had bought some sarees and she was showing them to me. When she came to this one, I told her that I remember grand mother (her mother) wearing a 9-yard version of this pattern and combination. I was rendered speechless when my mother said she had got it for me! Mothers can read minds…seriously!

Wore it on friday for the Varalakshmi pooja.
