A journo's jottings under no deadline pressure (since Jan 1, 2010)

The ladies who know her say she has always had her “nose high up in the air”.
And what was the source of her arrogance?
The fact that she was very beautiful? Or that her husband was in a very senior position in a bluechip company?
Nobody is sure.
But when her husband expired most people who knew her didn’t go to her house to pay their condolences. Not even those from her own community.
Surprisingly, the untimely death of her husband did not bring her down to earth.
But her son managed to get a good IT job and was soon engaged to a girl – from his community.
The bride-to-be had just one condition: “I will not stay with my mother-in-law after marriage.”
The marriage was called off.
The boy continues to remain a bachelor.
There are no proposals for his sister too, just a few years younger than him and a brilliant marketing professional.
