I, my mother, my two brothers and so on and my sister-in-law are also fair."


   Her paternal elder sister Nirja did not like such a comment for a small baby. It was good that her brother was not there at that time, otherwise he would feel bad. Both of them were unhappy because of baby‘s color. It was not good to say this in front of everyone. Nirja felt bad about. But Sugandha being own aunti was talking about her brother’s new born baby. She said to Sugandha "Your father is also not fair, will you say like this to your papa also.  Sugandha was embarrassed. After some time she went quietly without saying anything to anyone.


   Days passed as the little girl grew older and Shubhangi completed her graduation. She was beautiful, the brightness of color was missing in her. But she had the necessary qualities to make a successful career and at the same time she also had a special interest in dance in which she was expert. From the annual celebration of her school, college, to the annual celebration of the office, there was the presentation of her dance every year.


     Sugandha was so proud of herself and the children's color that she could not see all the other qualities. Neither she nor her children had extra qualities like this. She knew nothing more than to critics about shortcomings others.Whenever she would meet at any family function, she used to call her as "Black pussycat ". But her children never paid attention to her comments. They were friendly and used to play with her since childhood and whenever they met, all were happy.


Shubhangi's Dad, planed to celebrate the Silver Jubileen birthday of her. . This was a surprise for Shubhangi. She was shocked when she stepped into the house in the evening. The hall of the house was decorated, many guests also came home to wish her. In this party her aunts, uncles and cousins were invited. By the way, Nirja and Sugandha were good among themselves, but Nirja did not like some of her talks. Yet she ignored her talks. Today, Sugandha has done too much. After cutting the cake, Nirja and Sugandha went along to give her a gift. While giving a gift to Shubhangi, she said with a fake smile, Nirja was surprised to hear "Happy Birthday to Black pussy Cat "


Nirja spoke "Hey! Sugandha, just think that she is no longer a little baby child, she is grown up now. Think and understand. You are wishing her. Wish her with a smile on the face. Don’t hurt her at least today. Today is her birthday. Don’t force or let her be sad and shade tears. Well, Sumit and Amrita are not here even today and were not there on name ceremony day. Otherwise how bad her parents felt. Knowing that you often say her "Black Pussy Cat " to their daughter, and why does she spoil mood repeatedly by saying so? "Sugandha said to Nirja - Oh I was joking. See, she does not mind but why did you feel bad? ".  Nirja Said " No enough, it is not a good thing to taunt someone. You are so educated, it is not a good thing to hurt someone. "


    Seeing Niraja speaking from her side, Shubhangi was happy, but with tears in her eyes, smiling "Let go, Nirja aunty, my paternal aunt has done my naming so, don't you mind, now I won’t feel anything about it. It has become a habit to listen. I don't feel bad at all..
