Today I need to find shobha.
Today I needed her desperately.
Yes, I know you have that crooked smile in the corner of your mouth whenever I mention a woman’s name.
Shobha is Mohan’s wife.
She is a cute, charming girl and very talkative about any subject.
Today she came to my mind suddenly.
Mohan is my long time closest friend, now peacefully settled in Sweden. His wife Shobha is a citizen of Sweden.
From the way they act nowadays, it seems that they don't know me at all.
I lost contact with him for almost six months.
Our friendship goes back long ago with my service in Shell Nigeria. He too was there and we had a great time.
I am away from the subject…sorry.
This is to do with his cute wife Shobha, who used to ask me to bring clothes for her whenever I go globe trotting.
So what is so special about it ? Listen to this.
The funny thing is that she wants them in only one colour... peacock blue.
I have never seen her in any other coloured attire.
Peacock coloured Sari, Churidar, midi, maxi or what ever she wears…all in the same colour.
She says that it become her habit, from her very early days and revealed that she was once taken to a shrink by her parents to solve this obsession.
One day I even jokingly asked Mohan if she has peacock blue underwears too. He just laughed and laughed and shoba came out hearing his laugh.
When he repeated my question, she joined our fun, finding a gap to tell me that she wanted that too in peacock blue, but unfortunately she gave up her trials after realizing the futileness.
Now turning back to the subject:
Peacock is the national bird of India too and I know that it is blue.
You all know what this colour is, don’t you ?
This unique beautiful ‘blue’ had made this bird world famous.
But not any more, after taking these pictures of this white peacock. I am dumber than a donkey some times, as I realized this after seeing a white peeacock.
After taking these pics I decided to do little research on a white peacock. You know what I got first when I typed 'white peacock' ?
Butterflies!! Now I know that there are butterflies with the name white peacock.
Yes, there are white peacocks and peafowls too, as I saw them in Malayasia.
I am still looking for Shobha to tell this.
I don’t know how she will take this news.
I wonder if she will start crying. LOL
These pictures are from Malyasia.
Aren't they cute ?
