The Bud That Died Before Blooming
A/N 1: This is having the worst-est grammar possible. Actually this is a try. Trying to fit ‘into’ the mindset of a small Indian girl, who’s had no formal proper education.
Note: I even have a friend who uses almost this same type of bad English even now! Most importantly, wherever ‘I’ must come, he always uses ‘me’.
Character: Her name is pavithra (which means purity); of 13, attained puberty just 2 months before; typical middle class South Indian family, where nothing other than food, clothing and shelter is affordable; her dad provided her the basic education that he is unable to get; studying in a government school (fact: govt schools don’t provide good education, resources are less; not meant to offend). English is her 2nd language. Come, get into her mindset.
A/N 2: Though the entire thing is made of misspellings and wrong grammar, some important (significant) mistakes to understand better.
Allways, Allso – always, also.
*bare - bear
*vekkam (in Tamil)– blushing. Since she doesn’t know that word (blush), she used the Tamil word for it.
*Belief - trust.
*sigh – shy.
*brake up – break-up.
*Infachuasion – infatuation.
*Brest – breast.
*Sawing – seeing.
A/N 3: and yes, don't kill me for my title. A flower that didn't blossom is called 'bud', then what is 'bud before blooming', right?But ok, anyway I like calling it so....:-)
