Balloon of happiness -
I was playing with it, all I cared about was that, it had all the attention of a 4 yr old me till someone told me to pose for the camera. The photo was taken, considered the best and the most fantastico pic of my childhood it's all framed and is proudly hanging on the wall of my house for some years. What made the pic look so good? Was it my innocence or the joy brought out by the colorful fantastico balloons? It must be combination of both!
My Fantastico playmate-
It was customary for me to get a balloon at the Diwali fair. Now It's shape and colour a little changed. It was constructed by 3 balloons. 1 white balloon as the base stick, 2nd white balloon bent in an oval shape joined with the 1st one and the 3rd blue balloon inside the empty space of the 2nd one. It resembled a lollipop- a balloon lollipop! of course with a different purpose. After waving it and banging on my brother's head for some time I used to take out the 3rd balloon. It's always better to have two in case of "emergency". If one bursts I still had the other one. I used to draw a smiley face on it.
Big Balloon Theory-
One night after coming from the Diwali fair I kept the balloons inside the bed as I considered it to be the safest place for them. In the morning when I woke up from a sound sleep I looked under my bed. With no sights of it I went on a blaming my brother spree. when later I inspected the scene of crime I found the remains of the balloon. I cried loudly to make my mom and dad realize how grave the situation was! My dad tried to calm me down saying "balloon is temporary. It lived for long it had to. We too are like balloons. Our time will also come but the decision is in our hands if we cry about everything we lose or appreciate its presence! wasn't that a good balloon?" "it was." I said sobbing. That day I learnt the life's biggest lesson….through a balloon!
A Wishing Balloon-
Few days ago on my 20th birthday me and my friends bought balloons. My friend started taking our pics saying it would be perfect for facebook coverpics. We started posing holding the colourful balloons when my balloon's string got tangled with one of friend's balloons strings. We were untangling it when I lost the hold on my balloon and it flew away. I was sad but then I quickly made a wish. It is one of the most beautiful and fantastico moment of my life.
