Media at my home




It’s around 10 in the morning on 06th August 2008, Wednesday. I woke up but my feet still not wanting to get off from the bed. I was wearing my blue night gown with eyes half opened; I walked out from my room and there comes a very neat and tidy drawing room, shinning as if it’s renovated home. “Oh! Media people are coming today for mom’s interview”- thought runs in my mind. Being proud of my mother, I was keyed up and I wanted to unsoil my room also ASAP but first my morning bed tea is really essential to me. Soon after finishing my bed tea, I cleaned my room and got ready. My sister was getting ready as her office was calling her. She wanted to stay to mom’s media interview but work is work. She has to go. I felt good and pompous of my evening shift. A regular home was now looking like new home, all set to wait for media people to come.

“My home is near central market and you need to take the right from the flyover and come straight….” Mom explained to someone over phone. I guessed she was talking to media people as I was working on the laptop. Just after couple of minutes, media people entered our home around 11:30 a.m. I put aside the laptop and got up to meet people. As I entered drawing room, I saw one big camera on the stand along with huge stands of lights and different colour transparent papers to reflect different lights. Height of stand with lights was same as the height of big main door of our house. Without wasting even a single second, they started to set up their camera, lights and other settings from different angle. For the first time I saw such huge camera with strong lights – as strong as sunlight. May be my home was now being turned to a shooting studio. May be I was still dreaming or it was dream come true. I continue watching the media people as it was somehow still implausible reality for me.

2 people to set up lights, 1 cameraman, 1 interviewer and one blogger were ready to start the interview. Cameraman said, “Is rolling...” and the first interview started with Shailesh, another blogger. After 15-20 minutes, they again started to set up their lights in different slant to take my mom interview. After about half an hour, they asked mom to tie up the mike around her chest. “Is rolling…” again cameraman said. My mom interview was now finally started. Dancing like a peacock, as happy as my heart can be, shouting and telling the world – Look at my mom now, she has started to climb the stairs of success and fame. She is now becoming a screen idol. I came back from my own fantasy and continue watching the around the whole room. It didn’t look like a drawing room anymore as it was now converted to the film studio room. At the end of mom’s interview, Nikhil, interviewer, said, “now its your daughter turn. Let’s give her the benefit of waking up in morning after evening shift.” Ah! What a benefit, I love it. I felt I am daughter of celebrity. Now I was dancing on the ninth cloud. And the media people were busy shifting their camera to my room. I placed mike near my neck felling nervous and bit excited. Now my heart was filled with beyond contentment as interview was going to happen at my own favourite place – on my bed with my cutie teddy bear. Bingo! It’s the first time I am facing the media interview. Feels like top of the world. They asked questions after questions for 10 minutes.

By the time it was about to finish clock told me time its 3:00 p.m. I was supposed to get ready for office as my cab would come at anytime around 4:00 p.m. Though I didn’t eat my lunch but still my stomach was filled with loads of happiness. Finally it was time to get down from the ninth cloud back to Captive unit – Mercer India Pvt Ltd. “Megha they are about to leave so you can prepare tea for us”- Mom informing me. I had my afternoon tea and left home at 4:20 pm and media people left home around 30 minutes before me. A Dream comes true and the credit goes to almighty for everything. Thank God, mom and blog world. Deepest wish do come true if you trust God and have patience.
