365 days, July 6th : Tables turned

A story of opposites

It’s a story of two sisters who were described by their friends as, Positive and Negative.

Their mom and dad could not understand why they were so different. They were surprised and thought it better not to interfere.

Melissa and Vanessa were two sisters. The former was a half a dozen years older than the latter.

Melissa was studious, liked wearing clothes that enhanced her beauty, she was social, loved going out with her friends.

Vanessa did not spend as much time with her studies as her sister, she had no interest in dressing up and only had one friend.

With so much Contrast the outsiders were sure the older sister was better and smarter.

Vanessa loved watching her mother cook, she spent as much time possible to learn to cook by watching.

One day her mother asked, ‘Melissa I’m inviting some friends, can you make some rasgullas( cheese balls in syrup)?’

‘Allright,’she said.

Vanessa overheard the conversation she was unhappy. ‘Mom,’ she said, ‘Can I make rasgullas (cheese balls) too?’

Mom realized she was wrong asking only Melissa’s help. To normalize the situation, she said, ‘Sure you can make them too, then we’ll see who makes the best dessert.’

The competition began both tried to please mom, but mom felt, she didn’t do the right thing by playing one against the other.

The day of the competition arrived, the cheese balls were floating in the respective sauce pans. They were covered, after cooking for forty minutes, both sisters turned off the stove and placed their dessert on two separate wooden board.

The guests entered, after a few minutes the girls got a serving dish and approached where the dessert was cooling. Melissa confidently opened the cover and screamed, ‘mine are broken.’

It was Vanessa’s turn to remove the cover of her saucepan, she was nervous, with shaking hands she lifted the cover, ‘WOW!’ she exclaimed, ‘mine are perfect.’

The tables turned the guests were in awe, one of them, ‘whispered, how can it be possible!’

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this interesting story of two sisters and their rivalry!

    All good wishes,

  2. So one sister had a gift of cooking. Maybe the other sister thought she should be good at everything. But everyone has a gift, and gifts differ between people. This is a meaningful story!

    • Thank you Clouch, I tried to make up a story. I wasn’t quite sure of myself. I read several times to see if it made sense. Thank you for your comment. 🙂
