A washing with whiteness for the season
The white washers were two women of the neighbourhood and they were came in with a balancing hook to white wash our home.
A preliminary sack of white lime was got with the sticking fevicol and royal blue to add a blue ting.
A few buckets of water to mix , the women went to work with our utility man Palaniswami, whom i had written about some time back, a man of all seasons, to help them .
Up they went on to the rungs of the ladder and , it was so nice to see the whitening come on to the dirty walls, as they broomed it with the liquid lime .
Chewing the pan in between to keep them active, the women gossiped and by evening the simple home was made pious and pure of its walls.
