Oh husbands , note these down and make her not repeat the same questions again, She also is a human being.
A wife asks “How come my darling?”
In English by
(The original in Tamil had been posted by Hamsabai Santhana Krishnan in face book .My thanks to her.)
After our engagement , you used to come,
To my home daily saying that it was
Birthday, lover’s day , women’s day and so on,
But how come my darling nowadays you forget even my birthday?
When you go to select a shirt for yourself.
You never select a cloth of more than rupees twenty five a meter,
But how come my darling if my father presents you a shirt,
You only select Park avenue shirts and Raymond pants?
When you have a function of your family ,
Your office always gives you a week holiday,
But how come my darling , if it is a function of my home.
Your office seems to have inspection, auditing and meeting?
If there is a function involving your family members ,
You work like a donkey and never even take one minute rest?
But how come my darling when it is a function in my family,
You dress superbly and not even lift a twig ?
If some one of your family celebrates, without ,
Even taking a bit of loan , you give a present of twenty five thousand?
But how come my darling when a member of my family celebrates,
Your income tax is due and you have to take a loan to pay rupees one thousand?
When the children of your sister or brother come here,
To spend the vacation, even if they break AC or washing machine ,
There seem to be no problem because they are children ,
But how come my darling if my brother’s son breaks a ten rupee toy, you call them monkey army?
When some guests from your home come to visit us,
You apply for leave and get excited to show round our town,
But how come my darling when some one from my home comes,
There is meeting in your office and you come after midnight?
When I ask you to buy a ear stud or a necklace ,
You jump from earth to sky and shout at the top of your voice,
But how come my darling you stand like a simpleton for asking me for my necklace,
To finance building of the home or buy a vehicle for you?
When we go to shop a new Sari for me , your purse ,
Seems never to open and you get upset if it costs more than five hundred,
But how come my darling when we both go to the office party,
You shout at me for not wearing a decent Sari as if to insult you?
When I spend more than one hour to make up ,
And wear the best Sari I have , you never seem to appreciate,
But on the way when we meet the horrible lady typist of yours ,
How come my darling , you use great words to appreciate her dress and looks?
When you have a slight fever or a simple head ache ,
You shout so much and always take rest,
But how come my darling when I am sick , you want me ,
TO call a friend to prepare a five course lunch?
When you come to our front door , you find it ,
Difficult to ring the bell , due to your big paunch,
But how come my darling you tell me who has a pretty chubby look,
That your office steno is a slim beauty and I am useless.
When one of your friend comes from outside town,
You both spend the entire night in the bar,
But how come my darling , when I meet an old class mate in the road ,
You drag me saying , we are late for bus and there is cricket match?
When we are seeing some serials in TV , you snatch the remote,
From us and keep on watching news channels one after other always,
But how come my darling when our son asks , who is president of India,
You say Amithab Bachan or Rajendrakumar and tell our son to ask me for the correct answer?
One last question my darling, Are you hearing the news from TV or ogling at the news reader?
