The Woman On The Bike

The other day, when the car was at a traffic light, I noticed a young couple on a bike. They would have looked like any other young couple on a bike except that the girl had her arms full of red bangles. They both were dressed in jeans and tees. Normally, we don't mix Western attire with Indian traditional accessories like glass bangles, especially with the fear of being labelled behenjis. The only time you see women do so is when they are newly married.
