The greatest complient

She was sitting in her room with teary eyes. She had overheard her mother-in-law telling a friend,” it’s good that my granddaughter is not dark complexioned like her mother.”

Though her family always talked in derogatory manner about her dark complexion, her heart doomed each time hearing such conversations.

Suddenly, her 4 year old daughter stormed into the room yelling,” Mom! Grandma says I don’t look like you!
“Why am I not like you?” Her daughter continued,” You are the most beautiful in world!”

  2. How lovely is this, Ratna! I have tears in my eyes...
    Kids see something that adults can't. What's there in the skin-color? One may be fair-skinned, yet totally dark within...

    1. Just realized that what you have named "imperfect writings" actually has works of art! Not imperfect at all!
      Name mismatch! :)
      Keep writing! Best wishes :)
