So a certain Someone told me... Girls should be liberated enough to be protected themselves, and therefore find and get protection whenever required.
"Okay then " I said. "Lets Go."
This certain Someone walked with me tonight to find it.
Here beginneth the epic tale of Panu's Quest for the Divine Protection:
So off we went... me and my friend...
Not in the locality. That was too obvious.
So we went to anonymity.
Goddamit!! S said.... they have sanitary napkins but I can't bleeding find them!!
"Thats because you are looking at the cookie section."
"I swear I found them here the last time."
"You never came here before!! You said that!"
"I did at Big Bazaar! They had!"
No go. Food, tissues, detergents, pencil-rubber... every section was meticulously looked into. No protection.
Disgusted and annoyed, I approached the sales lady. She was equally clueless, and her mortified pink cheeks were festoons of our temporary withdrawal.
Jeevan. Ah the Portal of Trusted Life. Bring me the Protection!!
We walked with happiness as the light poured forth from the wide doors. I approached cautiously, with S at my heels.
And there were Old Men.
And there were Middle Aged Women with Shawls and Glasses.
I walked away with S. The Portal of Life was closed to us.
The UNKNOWN STORE
Disheartened, I moved with S to the grounds where she would find a chariot home.
We walked and we walked down the empty road.
And then we heard footsteps.
"Whatta Bum man!"
And my Great Rage began to build up. So did my Determination. I was going to be Protected or Else!!
And then.... Then There was the Store.
We walked to The Store. There was a Young Boy trying to buy a Cure for Cold. And we waited patiently till we were served.
And we demanded for Whisper.
And then delicately put forth our need.
And met with Perplexity.
The man stared at us and said...
" I am sorry. We do not have that brand."
To be brought this far... and Spurned!!
We were Disheartened. Our Goal seemed Far away. Far Far away.
And then the man said... "However, we do have Something Else!!"
So we made The Purchase. And we were given a concession for our efforts.
And the man Looked as we were Shielded.
And then We truimphantly went Home.
Now that we were well protected, we let the story unto others. Women of all times, hear our plight and Protect Thyself. For in Protection you can Rely. And in Protection you can Prevent.
And here endeth our Heroic Tale.
