Hi, I usually go out for a 1 hour walk in the evenings just to reduce a liitle weight gained during the lockdown and also to stay healthy. I walk through the roads near the market. I feel happy when I see a lot of faces (people returning from work/office), and also on the return way I can buy some vegetables. Yesterday, saw there was a sale of kurtis outside a garments shop and 3 or 4 females were checking it out. I just checked the XXl Size and my eyes fell upon a beautiful kurti. I opened to see if it would fit me and yes it was perfect. Most of the kurtis were very good over there n they were in L and XL sizes in majority. I wanted to see if I could buy one more and was checking the kurtis n sudenly the salesman started 'Amma , see this'. I was shocked to hear that, thought to myself do I look Amma to him?? I ignored, didnt react and went on with my business of selecting the kurtis. There were many choices in the smaller sizes and I asked him if they were available for my size. He said , no Amma. Again I ignored. Then he started showing some light dull colours xxl size and said Amma this is good, usage of Amma started to increase. I was being conscious then as ladies mostly in 20s started gathering. I told him Bhaiyaa show me dark colours. Again he showed a very huge size dress n said Amma this is also nice. I was thinking what is wrong with this fellow, even when i am calling him Bhaiya he is calling me Amma. Finally I selected 1 more. And he said payment is to be done inside the shop. This guy was standing outside with the sale kurtis. I was very much irritated with him. He just spoiled my mind. I am in my late thirties, and such people usually address me as bhabhi, didi or madam. I had my lower face covered with scarf. I was surprised why he was behaving so strange. Showing me all dull dresses and on top irritating by calling Amma. May be he got more commission if he got the dull ones sold. But the way he was addressing, he actually would never make any sales. Looked like he had some enemity with me. The kurtis were beautiful, otherwise I would not have bought from there. I am a stay at home mother and usually for walking or for running errands I dont dress up. In the hot humid climate , would be fully sweaty even after 10 minutes. I dont care about my looks and dress, but this guy made me think, do I really need to upgrade even for going walks. Since its corona time I didnt want to talk with him to correct his addressing. Still thinking do I look really that old to be called Amma. Or was he some enemy from my last birth or was he a fool to assume that jeans wearing ladies are young and kurta wearing ladies are elderly.
