“Oh..your daughter is so quiet , lucky you are to get blessed with such an obedient child” said her preschool teacher lightening up her mother’s face with pride .

“Oh..your friend is so good , your sister is so nice , your daughter in law is so calm , your wife is so perfectly poised” followed the never ending praises for her year after year .

But nobody bothered , nobody asked , nobody cared , was it her compulsion or her choice or was she simply trapped inside that cage of praise .

And yesterday someone again said ….

“Oh your daughter …” she cut that person abruptly in the middle and uttered “ You know my daughter is everything but not at all quiet” and having said those few words a satiated smile lit up her face .
