When I was in grade two I saw a three strand necklace worn by one of my classmates.It was the prettiest thing I ever saw. I wished I could have one like it. I did not mention it to my parents.I always thought one has to be rich to have a necklace so beautiful.
I wasn’t old enough to know how much it was. I did not think of asking my parents to buy me one . Even at that age I felt,my other sisters might like one too,can my parents afford three. So I gave up the idea.
When I grew up that necklace stayed in my inner thoughts,I’d tell stories about it to my friends and family. Once my sister-in-law came to visit us from Los Angeles. I told her about it. Suddenly she said,”wait a minute Chaman,I’d be right back.” She went to her bedroom and came back with a three strand pearl necklace and said, “here this is for you.”I was very happy. Getting a three strand necklace some day did not cross my mind!
