Random discussions flew across our ears as we sat relatively quiet with respect to our neighbouring ladies in the restaurant.
Talks ranging from politics, business, stocks, latest jwellery collection, novels, teenage administration, fashion and the recent trends, and of course the famous ‘blame game’.
Probably, none of them noticed that the baby(3 to 4 months old I guess) who appeared to be fixed on to the ‘cradle seat’ was almost going to subside. She leaned a bit and no sooner than she slipped, than one of us grabbed her like anything. Obviously we were strangers to the baby and she started crying but Thank God!! nothing terrible happened to her.
All of a sudden, the gigglings paused and the lavish mood was turned into a serious one! And obviously there were sounds being addressed to the baby’s Mom,like,
” Ohh Can’t you look at your baby!”,
” Ohh how can you be so careless! “
As If the mother had to bear it all.
The friend who had grabbed her just said one thing, ” She is obviously her Mother but I guess the baby could also be protected by her Mother’s friends if they were’nt so busy of course!!”
The baby smiled at us, We smiled back and moved out of the restaurant!!
