Islahuddin Nasiruddin Syed
Made For Each Other
A friend had lent him a 1000 Rupees
His 'things to do list' before the date was rather long
Had been two months since the last hair cut
The razor was blunt and hurt while shaving... thick stubble!
She had saved up Rupees 500 for the date
Lunch wasn't necessary every day, she skipped, saved pennies.
The company provided snacks in the evenings, she gorged!
The dress she'd wear was from the last festival, worn only once.
Rupees 20 haircut, Rupees 10 razor
New look for him; seemed much younger
Rupees 5 Anti-dandruff shampoo and a Rupees 5 deo stick
Rupees 950 ...
