Once we went to a Jyothishi to read our future . Not that I believe in it blindly or anything . But I like the art . And many times the predictions have coincided with my life .
My parents and hubby were also with me. We wanted to read the kids’ horoscopes and know general stuff .
The Jyothishi started with the basic back ground questions . He then read about our previous lives and also this one from a big Sanskrit book and translated the meaning for us .
As he finished Hubby’s he started to read mine . I secretly wanted the Jyothishi to do only one thing after looking into our future . Tell my husband I am the one who is correct and that he should always listen to me. Period. I am so sure about it , you know !
After reading for a while , suddenly he asked hubby a question . ” Is your wife beautiful ? ” Now , that is a million dollar question. Ah ! I was happy to know that the Jyothishi is on my side . He wants to tell hubby that now he has a beautiful wife by his side, listen to whatever she says , buy her what ever she wants and live a happy life .
I wondered what took me so long to come here . Being the evasive self hubby is , I was glad that this once he cannot dance around his answer . If he says ‘NO’ then he will suffer for it for the rest of his life . I will make sure of it 😀 . And if he says ‘ Yes ‘ he will suffer even more . I know that much 😀
My parents looked at me ready to console me if he says NO. Just in case .
Anyway , hubby answered , ” Yes ! “
“Why ? ” , asked the Jyothishi
Now , This man is some thing . He knows exactly where to hit the nail . May be it is all written in the book he is reading . But my parents were also there . What if hubby comes up with some thing mushy .
I wanted to signal the Jyothishi that I will take it from here now that he has posed the question . And also that I am thankful for being on my side. I wanted him to go to the next part … the listening and taking good care of wife …
But he looked quite relaxed .
Hubby thought for a moment , then said with poise ” Because she is beautiful inside . In her heart ! ”
I wanted to tell him that is not what the Jyothishi meant , you know !
I thought the jyothishi would prod for more . And eventually tell my hubby how lucky he is and things .
But he nodded approvingly , smiled and turned to me . ” See how lucky you are ! He knows you very well . And he knows every thing . Just relax . Listen to him and live happily . ”
