Felt

Filthy Minds!!!

Unlike the other days I could find the whole city crowded with people who are in a hurry to complete their last minute purchases for the Diwali festival which falls after two days. I came out of my office and took my usual road to bus stand watching crowded streets and the various expressions each and every single person is carrying with them. I could find a mother trying to soothe her son who is crying for some toy but her efforts were in a vein and the little boy won the toy which gave an angry and exasperated look over the mother’s face. I was being a silent spectator over many such incidents on my way and finally after 10 minutes I reached the bus stop where I usually get bus to home.

After 5 minutes wait the bus which I have to get in came to the stop with a halt. There was a huge crowd to get down from the bus and within a minute I was inside the bus with so much of fuss and the bus was once again filled in completely. I have been working for about 8 months and this is the first time I am looking into these buses getting crowded and I thought the festival season has bought so many people come out of their house and the government transportations are making a lot of money.

The bus is unbelievably crowded where I was not even able to turn my head to face the conductor for getting the tickets. Somehow after quiet a struggle I was able to get my ticket and I felt a sigh of relief. I could sense my nostrils inhaling and exhaling hot air which was filled with a mixture of smell with flowers, sweets, sweat and many such. I gasped for an instance and felt slight giddiness due to those smell. But somehow I managed myself not to fall and held the bars above my head firmly.

In every stop though people got down in bulk I could see more people getting in. I felt the cold sweat flowing right from my forehead to my cheeks and slid through my neck and ended up within my dress making my dress wet with every single drop of it. I hate getting sweated completely but I couldn’t help it now.

I felt a kind of chillness striking my body suddenly and before I could understand what was that I was been touched by someone from behind. A hand slowly slid between my legs and before I could react I could find that hand moving from my knee to my thigh slowly but firmly. I sensed that something is not right. At the very instance I was struggling to get free but it wasn’t that easy as the bus was loaded and I was not sure where and who was trying to do this. I hardly had place to turn and see and I was shocked to find a man in the age of 40s sitting in the seat and trying to do such a disgusting thing to a girl of his daughter’s age.  When I saw him, he saw me but the next moment he avoided me and went on with his work in moving his hands throughout my leg and I felt like a million earthworms were moving over my body and making me nauseating the very instant.

I decided not to create a scene as I was not interested in letting the people in the whole bus know what a man of my father’s age is doing to me and I was not ready to face the sympathetic eyes which are going to fall over me. I tried my best to make some room for myself within the crown to make myself comfortable for what I am going to do next. I slowly but boldly took my leg and stamped that man’s leg and the next moment he started screaming out of pain. I let out a big sigh of relief. He took his hands and started murmuring something while I stamped his other leg as hard as I can and moved my way towards the steps and stood near the steps. This time I could find that man looking at me angrily and I never cared to give another glance at that rotten piece of shit and turned with a satisfaction of taking my revenge.

There were still 2 more stops to go and I could feel sweat flowing like a falls all over my body and my hands were still trembling and I was not able to get out from what has just happened. While I was lost in my very own world I heard a sudden fuss within the crowd inside the bus and some lady has started abusing and finally that disgusting creature was pulled out of the bus by the conductor. I heard that lady shouting and I felt like she is voicing for me. I felt thankful to her. 

Glass painting & Crafts!!!

Ahhh…. It was such a sense of relief to be free for the past two days 🙂 It was really a hectic for the past week as i had few must-do crafts kept lagging behind and so i had to finish those as the deadline for those was nearing. Thus i did the following craft works 🙂 It was really a huge pile of experience i have got through this and i would like to share those too with you guys 🙂

Glass painting:

First comes the glass painting which was my life’s first order for payment 🙂 I was much excited as there was one more thing – Its my first large glass painting with 24” length and 17” breadth 🙂 Phew! It took me 2 hours to make the small picture into a big one with this size… As am not good enough with drawing and painting skills i felt it really hard in managing the sizes and somehow i managed to draw the stencil for this one. If you look at the painting you might find it so simple but i was not able to cop up even with this simple design as i was not able to trace and had to draw it myself. Guess the outcome was not that bad.

Then i did the outlining for about an hour looking over the minute details which was not clear yet. Then i let it dry and the next day i did the coloring part with two coats to make it look dark and after that i felt quiet relaxed as it was not as bad as i thought it would be 🙂 🙂

And framing the painting was the most hectic task as i had to take the painting for about 2miles from my home and it was not that easy as i thought. I had a huge stress in handling this situation without my mom. That’s when i felt so bad that i really need a person to help me out and i cannot do each and everything by my own 😦 But i do managed to take it safe with lots of care and had it framed and the final outcome made me really feel good worth of getting money for it 🙂

Christmas Wreath:

Guys, do forgive me for this one. I had no idea of doing a wreath in my whole life. When i had to come over so much of wreaths in many blogs i just felt that i can do one wreath too for this Christmas. But i had a chance of doing a wreath last week as there was a function at my office and had to give bouquets to the clients. Luckily this time the clients left the bouquet at our office and so it was of no use at my office. So i got an idea of turning a part of the bouquet to a wreath and this was the outcome of it 🙂 🙂 🙂

The head bands and hair clips:

My sister was asking me for few headbands that would match her dress the best with the same kind of design i have made her few other headbands. But i was not satisfied in doing the same kind of patterns so i did few other designs and a few hair clips too in extra for a bit of surprise and i had to courier it to her as she stays in hostel… Guess she would have liked it 🙂

The clips that are made of felt cloth...

The headbands made of fabric, satin ribbon and buttons...

Thus the week was quiet a busy one as each and every evening i left home from office i had to sit down for an hour or two of working for this which takes away my valuable time to be spent with the my best friends ( the neighbor kids) and with my lovable mother… But it was quiet fun making all these too 🙂 🙂 🙂
