Madhavi was not the one to give up; after all, her standing
was at stake. Finally, after 18 minutes of negotiation, she
clinched the deal.
“18 dollars and the photo of the old woman for free,”
Madhavi declared, her eyes shining as if she had just
climbed Mount Kilimanjaro on stilts!
I love going shopping with Madhavi. It offers tax-free
entertainment and gives me loads of masala to indulge in
leg pulling later. She shops for herself, the home and me.
From shoelaces to other elements of sartorial elegance,
every piece I wear has been bought by her. And that is the
way it should be, since ours is a love marriage, and I believe
her taste is better than mine!
