Sushmita and I met when she moved to Mayur Vihar with her family and joined my school. We were great friends and spent a lot of good times together. I think I spent a better part of my childhood and teens in her house. Our moms are great friends to this day. She has the coolest mother. I remember we used to play Table Tennis on her dining table. Once we had a big fight while playing. Voices were raised in anger and her mom sat peacefully and waited for us to sort out our own problems. She never interfered. I loved that about her. Will need to talk a bit more about her but another time.
So coming back to the picture. This dress was also one of my favourites and I wore it for the longest time. Those big white ear rings are plastic clip ons. I think I had them in almost all colours possible!! And although you can't see it I'm probably wearing my mother's HMT watch. I loved that watch. This journey backwards is just so sweet.
