The sparkle of diamonds
I landed myself to a diamond jewelery shop yesterday evening. Tanishq, the shop, bore the enchanting dim of an exotic place. The ambiance was just right. Several small counters were segregately placed at a number of places. Soon we were attended by the salesperson at one of these counters. He showed us an earring, 22 carat gold studded with diamonds in the middle. I held the diamond earring in my hand and gave it a look and that was it -- I was mesmerized. The diamond shattered light into so many sparkling colors several of them into my eyes and I was sure that I'd buy it. The only pinch was -- it cost Rs 6600/- I know I'll have to invest several months of my TAship money to fork that amount but the thousand watt smile that'd light up the person to whom I'll give this is totally worth it. Now I just need the money.
