remember the d4y when you objected to my dress and hair. That day you
appeared to me like 'evil dictator' who would never understand my style,

my personality. The next day, you did not allow me to go out. I was fiercely

angry with you. We were on opposite sides and there seemed no meeting

grounds. Now when I recall this incident, I also remember how you

appreciated my choice when we had to buy a gift for Asmi. I also recall
how after getting angry with me for the bad report card for a few hours,
both of you came into my rodm and explained what I should do to score
more marks. I have both good and bad memories but now I would prefer
to remember the best. The little and big arguments between us were just

thoughtless reactions.
